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.

There's good music being made all the time. You just have to find it. I listen to a lot of stuff on You Tube these days, and there is actually new stuff I like. I've never liked 'pop', even pop from when I was a teen/20-something. PS: I'm also 43.

Even MORE SIMILARITIES! He LOVED not only history, but music! He even built a sound studio in our home; as we both have deep musical roots & many musician friends!

Talk about even MORE things u have in common with my Brian; his middle name was Charles! He would LOVE your comics! He was still somewhat self-conscious, but laughed at himself also!

So true! Lately, I've been listening mostly to music from the Hippie days, to keep myself from exploding.

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
