Hi there,

You are very welcome to Ask Pat.

You are saying that you are feeling fat and ugly. It sounds like you are feeling very down at the moment and we are glad that you contacted us.

Maybe there is something going on for you that has you feeling that way,
and you would have the right to talk to a trusted adult about how you are feeling. You have the right to get help and support and it is okay to ask for help.
