Phat Fat Physician

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 10:22 PM
That title may have bitten off more than it can chew but admit it... you judge your doctor. 
"She was nice", "I like her hair", "I bet she raids the fridge at night."

And hey, why not! She is telling you what to do to lower your cholesterol. And from the looks of it ...

But let me tell you this dirty little secret.
Many of us docs are like parents. You know , "Do as I say, not as I do"
And not for any God-complex reasons, rather, the ugly of the matter is that donuts taste just as good to us as it does to you. And that knowledge comes with but so much willpower.

Yes, long days dealing with often whiny, miracle seekers leaves one wanting, wait... craving an indulgent, no good, stop watching me, tub of chunky monkey.

So your physician grapples with her own humanity and knows that being judged is par for the course but like any noble professional, she has figured out the plus to that size which turns out to be a benefit for you. 

It's called the "Been there, Still Struggling with That" empathy.
And there's a high chance that empathy influenced the care that you received.

And that is Phat !
