Yeah well I can’t wait until I’m 18 and then my dietian and doctors have to keep things just between the two of us. I don’t know it’s just that when my mom (my dad I don’t mind as much) is in the room I like don’t want to say somethings because I’m not sure what she’ll think. So I defintally can’t wait till I’m 18.
You know what drives me nuts, when we do go to the dietian my parents make it seem like my little sister is perfect with her diet and I’m horrible. It stinks because truth is I’m not that bad with my diet, I write down what I eat and all but my parents think I eat whatever I want because there thinking is if they don’t see me write my food down then I didn’t and the same with my milk.
