Dear Matt,I'm going to give you the same advice I gave to a girl on this board. Talk to someone about your worries and concerns. They will help you to see things in a clearer manner and if not, they'll find someone who can. Even if your parents aren't together, it doesn't mean they don't love you. You parents split for a good reason, they must have been unhappy, and therefore, made themselves happy by being a part. Talk to one of your parents, or even both. When you see the doctor you can talk to him, or try a teacher. I know it's stressful when you want to lose weight and it won't go away. Believe I've been there, done that and got the t-shirt!!!! Your too young to be worrying about such matter, but it doesn't stop you worrying does it? Please seek help and don't stay quiet. For some reason, a shared problem becomes a shared solution!!!If you need to vent and don't want to talk with your parents, even if I think you should. I'll always be willing to listen. Krystle AKA hodgypie@aol.comTake care Matt and please seek help!!!!!
