I Am NOT a Disease

The only time I feel diseased, defective, broken is when society repeatedly pushes me down because of how I look and what numbers show up on a scale when I step on it.  I don’t feel those things unless I am taught to feel them.  Not even when I actually suffer illness or injury.How is simply declaring me as diseased based on statistics, and despite how I feel or the quality of my life, good for my health?How is that good for anyone’s health?
