my little sister: 5'0, 85 llbs., 12 years old.
she just came into our room last night crying and when i asked her what was wrong she lifted up her shirt and pointed at her stomach saying her friends were poking her all night telling her they like her "pudge", after about ten minutes of just letting her cry i told her she was beautiful and her friends don't know what they're talking about and she just kept crying.
it was heartbreaking.
then today, while i was cleaning my dance studio she was with me and was being really quiet which isn't like her so i asked what was wrong and she said she was hungry so i told her to go get something out of the office and she said she couldn't and when i asked why she looked at herself and mumbled something so that i didn't understand so i asked again and she yelled " I'M FAT! that's why!"
it was the worst feeling i have ever felt.
I didn't know what to say, because i know exactly how she feels.
i've felt sick all day, maybe because of that?
but i haven't really eaten
