• How do you eat more?!?

    Ever since I was little. I had diet tips and sayings shoved in my face. My parents served me dinner and gave me tips to eat less. So I eat 600 calories a day (if I'm lucky) just by habit. Apparently I should be eating 1,800 calories a day as someone who is 16, 5'1, about 130ibs. But I'm the fattest kid in my class. I eat pretty... show more
    Ever since I was little. I had diet tips and sayings shoved in my face. My parents served me dinner and gave me tips to eat less. So I eat 600 calories a day (if I'm lucky) just by habit. Apparently I should be eating 1,800 calories a day as someone who is 16, 5'1, about 130ibs. But I'm the fattest kid in my class. I eat pretty healthily too. So I guess my problem is that I don't eat enough and my metabolism is in starvation mode? I'm trying to eat more, so I've planned out my breakfast 9:00 am: 10 almonds- 70 calories 1 Banana 105 calories 1 cup of milk 122 calories 1 fried egg 90 calories = 387 but the thought of eating that much is actually making me sick. What should I do?

  • How do you get diagnosed with ADHD?

    I am pretty sure I have it (or something similar), so that's not my problem here. I go to a therapist, and they have a medicine and diagnosis branch. I really want to get this figured out because it affects my schoolwork severely. What should I say to them to get this started? What is the process like?

  • Tan Harry Potter Characters for Cosplay?

    I'm a tan boy and I really want to do an accurate cosplay. Anyone know any male Harry Potter characters that a tan boy can cosplay? (I'm rather short and I have dark brown hair just for reference. I'm also not skinny, but just barely chubby.)

I can't ever do any cosplays because everyone is fricken white. After that, the few that aren't are some other specific race (that I am not). All that's left (if any) are the boring characters. (So really, does anyone maybe know any male Harry Potter characters that were tan?) I guess an advantage is that I don't sunburn (at least not in my 16 years of life so far). But I can't find much good from this. It is probably my biggest insecurity and boys aren't supposed to care about this stuff right?

  • Remus Lupin Skin Tone. Harry Potter Cosplay Question?

    The books, if I recall, did not assign a particular skin tone to Remus. I am looking into doing a cosplay of one of the marauders, and my skin tone is rather tan (the ashy type, not the sun-kissed type). Would that work? I would consider Sirius, but he is supposed to be pale. I'm trying to be on the cannon side of things.

    I know I need new glasses. These are 2 years old any my vision is DRAMATICALLY worse. But to make it worse. I actually can't see anything because my eyes always get all gunky and watery.

It makes my vision so blurry. I'm constantly blinking hard and rubbing them. Is this just because I need new glasses or should I get this checked out? Also, I went from "sorta need glasses" to "who is that down the hall I actually can't see their face" in about a half a year. Does this sound like something I should go to a doctor about? (I have migraines too, and I'm going to a neurologist in a few months about that, but maybe that's related?)

I wasn't ready to come out yet though. My older brother found out HE was trans when he was 16 (I was 14). He came out to my parents and they were like Oh **** okay. They refuse to call him his name or his pronouns. They say things like "Go get sibling". Not even go get your sibling. Thay still go with daughter and stuff too. In two years, they've gotten used to the fact that he's out to everyone and they're just assholes. But they continue to be assholes nonetheless. As for me, I told my mum when I was probably 15. She could not believe that both her kids would be trans. She is practically making us choose among ourselves which of us "gets" to be trans. She "just does not see it". I asked her how she would feel if I went by a different name at school and she was awful to me about it and always refuses to talk about it. My therapist agrees with me that I'm trans, well as far as she tells me at least. My mum refuses to ever go with me to my therapy so I can't get my therapist to talk to her. I just don't know what to do. I had a panic attack the first day of school from having to go by my old name. It was my worst ever. My hands seized up and I thought I was going to die. My mum was terrible to me when I told her why. What can I do?? Help!! I feel like I'm going to die without it.

I extensively enjoy books with classy vocabulary in them as well like the Sherlock Holmes series. My favourite animals are dragons and wolves too, so if you have any fantasy animal books that aren't too juvenile, hmu.

(I'm a guy btw if it matters) ((Yeah, so the reason my range is like that is that I was sick for a half a year and not really allowed human contact besides my family, and the one thing I was allowed to leave to do was to go see POTO when it came to town. So that's what I did with my summer. I pretty much just sang.))

  • What should I eat when I don't want to eat, but I'm hungry.?

    This happens to me all the time and I don't know what to do about it. Everything just sounds repulsive. There might be an underlying eating disorder too since I'm kinda chubby so I often am very self-conscious. (I'm vegetarian btw if that affects your answer, idk)

I'm not really working that hard at school, and at times I feel like maybe I'm a slacker, but I feel like I'm working so hard at the same time. I am trying to always prioritize happiness over grades, but I feel like I won't be smart if I don't do at least ok. I got a 28 on my first practice ACT and I get a 3.5-3.7 GPA at school, but I feel like it all means nothing. I feel like I'm working ar this just to prove something. I just want to be seen as one of those friggin geniuses that are in all the movies that don't really use their smarts for school, but are so smart. (Like I don't want to be one of those all AP students that have on lives.) I have been told I'm smart and I have reason to believe that's true, but I don't know what to do about it. I was going to study alchemy this summer. That or neurology, but I feel like it's all nothing. Maybe I'm just bored? What can I do?
