Hello, my name is Charlie, and I'm fat. I developed type 2 diabetes in my thirties due to my poor health and eating habits. I wanted to talk openly about my struggles, and since laughter is the best medicine, I started a semi-autobiographical webcomic titled Big Fat Charlie.

Working on this comic has been therapeutic and has helped me cope with my struggles. I've been contacted by more than one person who's said that they find my comic entirely relatable. Thank you for reading. Please enjoy.

I have lost 275 lb and so it used to be that I would go to the doctor the doctor talked to me about my test results in my weight and blah blah blah now I go to the doctor and they're like do not lose anymore weight it's quite the fat shaming is really real as is skinny shaming I never thought that I would experience both in the space of a year and a half

Total hoax and already debunked in 2016 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer: There's no conclusive evidence for a carcinogenic effect of drinking coffee.
