I have been the victim of weight bias many times but the one that stands out to me the most came from a health care professional when I was being seen in the Emergency Department of my local hospital. He was extremely disrespectful to me by talking around me to my husband and professing to him that I was a large woman. This had nothing to do with why I was in the ED. He treated me like I was non-existent and didn’t feel he needed to have the courtesy to speak to me directly. This was a particularly humiliating situation for me.
