My problem is getting worse by the day, I don’t know if you would be able to remember me, but It is that one that eats a pig but looks skinny, I don’t know what to do anymore, the lady from fresenius is refusing to subscribe anything to me, she says i need to go the doctor , and she needs my medical report as to why it difficult for me to gain weight, but I have been I don’t know how many times to the doctor and all they could tell me is that I have a fast metabolic rate and It would eventually slow down as I grow up that was seven or nine years back, they gave me multivitamins and all that, but I still look like I am six years old even though I am in my twenties, I eat a lot and junk,oily food, all the things that a person who wants to loose weight don’t eat I eat them because I want to get fit, I think the only thing left for me to do is just to accept that I will never gain weight and just commit suicide because my life is a living hell, it has been depressing me for too long now I try to ignore it sometimes, but its difficult when I have to stare my self in the mirror everyday, I see there is nothing noone can do for me, anymore, I have been there done that, its pointless for me I am forever hungry no matter how much I eat, so thanks doc, for me its bye bye planet earth and hello heaven, may all of you who want to gain weight prosper, as for me I bit you farewell, its really not a matter of choice,

Thank you anyway

Dear Tired and Tired
Of course I remember you. Please don't commit suicide. If you can't obtain meal supplements from Fresenius, then go to your nearest pharmacy and ask the pharmacist for a product that will help your to gain mass. I suspect the reason why the person at Fresenius does not want to subscribe anything, is because she is of the opinion that you have an underlying condition that is preventing you from losing weight. From what you say in this Message I also think that you should see an Endocrinologist (a dr who specialises in the hormonal control of the body) for a second opinion. I know you say that you can't afford to see another dr, but if it saves your life then please make a plan. The only other condition that would prevent you from gaining weight is underlying depression, which may be a factor in your case. Discuss this with the Endocrinologist. So no bye bye planet earth, get some professional help before you do yourself harm. Life is worth living, even if you don't think so at the moment.
