hello everyone... Im not sure if this site can help me.. i am 25 years old female. I know that i am not a normal person coz i am physically abnormal. Though i am not handicapped but really abnormal. I mean i dont have a normal weight eversince i was a child. I was even categorized being a severely malnourished pupil when i was in the elementary. But i eat. I eat delicious and sometimes nutritious food, i even go for my hobbies such as hiking or mountain climbing. I dont even easily get sick, infact all my officemates got some cough or even fever, yet i am not affected. See, i am a normal person having just an abnormal body.

i am just actually looking for some people who can help me most especially the doctors who can prescribe medicines or vitamins. Though my doctors have prescribed me already yet nothing happened. I always have a weight of less than 85lbs having a heigh of 5 ft. I am really skinny and i dont like this anymore, actually ever since i dont like coz alot of people think that i am a very unfortunate and such a pity and worthless person. But despite this abnormal life i try to live in a normal life.

  • Are you actually malnourished, or are you just small. If you don't have any deficiencies in your system, than you may just have to accept that this is how you are.
