As you probably know I’m in hospital. It’s okay though I don’t tell people for sympathy, I tell them because its the truth. It’s where I have been and I can’t change that. However, when people say ‘are you better yet?’ Or ‘you look better’ I feel like yelling at them. How can a person ‘look better’ just because they are smiling and laughing? A smile can hide too many things and I’ve learnt this the hard way. How can a person ‘look better’ from a MENTAL illness? Yes I might be putting weight back on but it doesn’t mean I feel any better about food. Just because I can wear short sleaves now doesn’t make the urges to self harm go away.
Please be careful what you say
Over and out.
