148. For anyone who has ever thought to themselves (or said out loud, thanks so much)

"wow, she's really let herself go" let me clue you in on something you may not realize, something I didn't realize either until it happened. Menopause can be downright mean. I was thin most of my life, only occasionally having to put in extra work to keep things that way. Past a certain point, it's become a losing battle. The change in the way I'm treated isn't just because I'm older. I'm well aware that much of the reason I am invisible until mockworthy is because of my weight. It's unkind and it has little to do with who I am as a person. Someone above said it better than I can, but I'll mention it again: just because you're aiming "fatty" insults at someone you think is a bad person doesn't mean you aren't also hitting others as well. Just a thought.

Thank you for this post, RegularJam.
