Bullied for being skinny
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

Hello I'm a 17 year old girl. I'm fairly underweight for my height and age but it has nothing to do with my eating habits. I eat nutritious and filling meals everyday, I just don't gain weight. But everybody keeps bullying me for the way I look. People at my school call me "flat" and they act like it's a joke, what friends would hurt you like that? My relatives keep asking my mother if something is wrong with me and pass mean comments. Even my teachers have asked me multiple times whether I starve myself. I'm tired of being shamed for something I cannot control, it's making me hate my body.
