Re: How is Your Day Going? Wrath of the Smecchi's

I'm like horribly stressed out. I normally don't rant, or vent on here but, I don't care. I feel like it. xD

So about a month ago my manager starting giving me diet pills for modeling,
Sense I'm going to start doing runway in the middle of March for some show case at the galleria where I live.
I normally stuck to just studio photo shots, but this makes more of the money. ;;
I'm pretty skinny already, not horribly.. like you can see my ribs skinny, I have some muscle. (I hope)
So I take a lot of medications already for countless sicknesses, and these diet pills aren't really "suggested" by a doctor, if you catch my drift.
I started to notice how after every meal i'd throw up, and it was on going.. and never ended.
I went to the doctors a couple weeks ago and they diagnosed me with bulimia, but it's the non-purging type.
It's just involuntary for me to throw up after every meal.
I guessed the mix of my medications already with the diet pills was the problem, so I stopped.
After I stopped taking the diet pills, I was throwing up more, and it's been out of control lately.
I hope I don't end up like those walking dead male models.
My cheek bones are becoming more visible, and i'm losing weight.
My doctor gave me like a million of these packets explaining what I should do before I eat, what I should eat, and what I should do after I eat.
I'm not happy because I like to eat, and my stomach whines at me all the time.
It's like a gorilla banging against it's cage in there.
I love food, idc, food is life. I need food.

Anyways. I'm going to have my baby niece in a month. c:
I'm so excited. I've waited so long for this uugghhh

That's sad Bam. Throwing up for no reason like that .... maybe it's BECAUSE of those pills that you throw up? Y'know, managers think of people as "objects of income".

@Bam- Hopefully, you'll feel better. Maybe its taking awhile for the pills to get out of your system? I know that when taking pills, it usually takes at least a month to flush it out. I feel for you too. I was diagnosed with anorexia when I was still in high school. Its not that I wanted not to eat because I love food too, but I was having stomach pains and then I would throw up and I couldn't keep anything down. It was horrible, I lost so much weight.

I was 15, 5'5 and down to 89 pounds. I thought I was going to die, but then I got on medication for anxiety which helped and can you believe the stomach pains were caused by a build up of gas and irritable bowel syndrome!? So, I've been taking reduce gas in the stomach pills and now I'm 20, 5'6 and a comfortable weight of 135 pounds :D

lol wow.
& Yeah, I don't really want to die of.. weight loss.
I'm almost 6'0 now, and 130-140 something pounds.
I used to be somewhere from 140- to like 150.
For my height it's pretty "thin".
Oh and yeah Tensa,
My manager isn't the brightest crayon in the box.
The diet pills aren't the purging type, they just make it so you have no appetite.. at all.
I've been under her wing for like a year now.. yeah, great woman.
Just a bumpy road, and I'm hoping it goes away with time.
I have enough things to worry about like school and family, I don't need anymore health issues.
Or at least something hard to recover from like bulimia.
Thanks though.

@Rabbit

That happens quite a lot to people who is not used to changing timetables (Night shifts and similar stuff). I'm used to it (Actually, I prefer it) and sometimes I got that down moments too. Just take advantage of it, those moments are great to draw, write or play an instrument.

@BamBam

I know how hard the modeling world can be, but you have to define your priorities: It's your work, or your health. In your case I'd listen to a proper doctor and nutricionist rather than your manager.

The 'Beauty' standards (Note the quotes) nowadays are so ugly, unnatural and impossible to get that models have to actually sacrifice their health in lots of occasions to get or maintain the job. Honestly, don't fall in that, it's not worth it.

@BamBam

Do you really like modeling and if you do, then maybe you should get a new manager, one that actually cares for you and not giving you diet pills? I hate how you always have to be skinny to be "accepted." The real world people can't wear a size zero unless they want to give up eating for the rest of your lives. I think that weight for a male and height is okay, but I don't think you should be losing anymore and possibly get it back up in the '50's again.

I normally don't say things like this but...

Bam. Your manager is a fucking selfish bastard and needs a severe beating with a nail bat. Talk to a lawyer and see about ruining his entire life and career, put him out of his home out onto the street, and reduce him to eating out of maggot-infested garbage bins for the rest of his life and see how he likes puking his guts out every meal. If he hits rock bottom hard enough maybe he'll turn to heroin and give himself an air embolism that results in a very swift and painful death like he rightly deserves for treating you like that.

Get a new manager. I mean it. He's a selfish bastard that deserves to have his entire life pulled out from under him straight onto burning coals.

You are now aware that an angry Quenlin is a dangerous Quenlin.

There's not much I can say, except when I can afford a better manager, I will have a new one.
For now I have to stick with it.. even though it's hard.
This was my choice from the start, and I don't do modeling for fun, I do it for the money.
It pays the bills, even if it means hurting my well being in the process.

Really, thanks for the support, it means a lot to me.
I can't really say things will get better, because I can't see the future.
So, it's just best to believe things will.. hopefully.
Thanks, thanks, thanks.

>:T Bam, hon...
sometimes we have to put ourselves first, and I do believe you're in that kind of situation!
But whatever your choice is, I can't do anything else but support you and hope for your well being.
Do stay well! <3

Bam, I'm going to be blunt. It wont. Take it from me, I know scum better than most other Shuuligans and I can smell them from miles away. Your manager is scum, tell him to shut his damn mouth. Guy's probably a sick perverted bastard or something or has a god complex where he likes to micromanage human beings. Either way it's people like that I'd push down on my way out of a burning building.

@Bam

I understand about the money problem. I think everyone on shuu does, but shouldn't your parents be helping out? I went on your profile and you're still a minor, so I don't think you should be the only one who should have all this pressure and stress on you.

@Quenlin

Wow, you must've dealt with all a lot of scumbags in your life.

Guess I'm not the only one around with such experiences. Nice to have you on the boat Quenlin.
