Quick Link: Depression, Side Effects, and Skepchick

In the interest of strengthening the links between fatties and skeptics, I am once again posting a link to a post on Skepchick. This one is by Elyse, is called Doctors vs Orgasms, and is about a series of discussions with her doctor about medications and their side effects. The reason I’m linking to it is that one of the side effects is weight gain, a possibility considered to horrifying to consider by the doctor, although not by Elyse. The lessons here are (a) anti-fat bias hurts thin people like Elyse as well, and (b) sometimes it’s best to stand up to one’s doctor.
