Hi BeingGirl Experts,

At my school, it's "uncool" to eat at school and most girls don't eat, and it's really hard for me because I have diabetes, and I have to eat at school and everyone calls me "fat" because I eat at school. What should I do? Help!!

Dear Ellen,

The girls calling you names are the ones with problems. Eating is definitely a healthy thing to do and in your case properly spaced meals are very important.

 

What these girls are doing is a form of bullying. Being bullied feels awful, regardless of whether it is done verbally or physically. A person who is bullying another person may be looking for a level of control or power that they don't have somewhere else. Or, they may be doing it for attention. Either way what they are doing is wrong.

 

My suggestion is to approach them and explain your health needs. Ask them to stop bothering you. If this doesn't work, then talk to a trusted adult. Chances are no adults know this is going on with you and would help if they did. Your telling them is okay if you find you need their assistance.

 

Good luck in dealing with this,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I used to not eat at school because i didnt like when people saw me eating now I do because i get hungry and it is unhealthy not to eat anything for 7 hours. Those girls call u fat because you probably make them hungry while u eat ur lunch. What you have to do is keep eating and its not like you have a choise when you have diabetes + being hungry is not a nice feeling.

If I were u, i would just ignore them. They should walk a mile in your shoes before they judge you. If u are really worried about it, y don't you just bring ur own lunch ( if u can)?? Just an idea.

ok, i think its g00d advice, but its not always helpful to go to adults, bc then they can bring up that you told, and will avoid yu and bring up other names. i think you should 1)confront them, and tell them what they did wrong so clearly that they shouldnt have any space to ask ?s, or 2)ignore them, people that judge you dont matter and its probibly not accurate! :)
