Mike's Story Family & Friends

I am a 19 year old male college student. I have recently done a report on the "Beauty Myth" within society. I came across your Web site and used it for my research. Until now I had never known that so many people were affected by this disease. As a younger child I was always taunted because of my weight and appearance. It was a hellish experience and I can sympathize with those who suffer more deeply than I did. I want to thank you for providing a site that was eye opening and informative. And to all those out there afflicted with this horrible plague I wish you only the greatest success in defeating your affliction.
