My G-tube: It IS necessary

Click for the bigger picture (literally and figuratively) 
I’m getting a g-tube (feeding tube) placed Friday. I’m pretty underweight and it’s difficult for my body to absorb fat and nutrients.

I AM very skinny. I’ve always been skinny. But now it’s unhealthy. Like I’m literally a bag of bones. It’s unhealthy. It affects my health.

When I tell people that I’m getting a g-tube, people still say, “but you look perfectly fine!” No I don’t. I found a picture of how I looked right after I graduated high school and I slapped it right next to a picture of how I look now.

I’m not healthy. How I look isn’t “pretty.” I look sick.

Year 2012 on the left and now on the right.
