I Got Fat Shamed By My Doctor And I Fucking Hated It (She Also Pinched My Vagina)

But she's decided to go off and have a baby (rude) so I can't see her for a while. While she's gone, I made an appointment with one of the other NPs in the practice and I've just returned from my awful appointment with her.

I sat down in her office and we started to go over my details, she asked me if I still smoked and then lectured me about how i need to quit (typical, reasonable). Then she did something strange, she asked me how tall I am. Isn't she a doctor (or a health professional or whatever)? Shouldn't she find out how tall I am for herself? Whatever, I'll get back to this later.
