Nikisha discusses issues surrounding her weight and how she has dealt with this through help from an internet chatroom she now hosts.
"Hey! There's a person here,
not just Eeyore
hiding behind a door.
I open the door - the screen to my PC
I surf the net and look in rooms.
I show my profile with a pic of me,
People look and disagree.
I change my ID to a beauty queen
I'm accepted in society, yeah!
I think it's unfair,
Just not my flair.
Just scan the rooms from peers to romance and none do I find.
I stop, stare,
can this be a room for me?
So I change my ID,
thinking Big Beautiful Women is the place to be
because of my obesity.
At last, people really accepting me.
The last time I went out, being made fun of,
the house became my sanctuary.
Lonely, unhappy, suicidal, depressed, God what a sight to see.
Just going out to see my GP.
I went for surgery to remedy me,
diet of five hundred calorie.
From 35 stone to 42.
This didn't work, oh why me?
As a child, so small, as petite as can be.
Dad used to call me Pipi Longstocking
Yeah! That was me!
Then I grew into obesity,
a stomach stapling it had to be.
Wow! A reduction of 25 stone.
At last, a life for me.
Mad hair days to outings galore,
A meet in 'Brum' for me and my chum.
A place I would not be if not for my PC.
My friends, too many to mention at Big Beautiful Women, so dear to me.
Here I would not be, if not for them.
They help me see,
the life out there for you and for me."
