How to help doctors not be dicks(r/fatlogic)

You should check out this book The Coddling of the American Mind. It talks about just this! There’s basically three untruths that people are clinging to: (1) what doesn’t kill you makes you weaker, (2) always trust your feelings, and (3) life is a battle between good and bad people. There’s this mentality that everyone is so inherently fragile that we must be protected all the time. Couple this with the fact that people conflate their feelings with reality. This is the exact opposite of what cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) teaches people who are recovering from anxiety disorders. Just because you think something is scary/wrong, doesn’t mean it actually is.

I agree that just a u-turn back to the Hard Knocks method probably isn’t right, but we need to teach people that it’s OK to feel uncomfortable and anxious sometimes. It isn’t always reality and it’s rarely the end of the world.
