I realized it has been 4 days since I’ve eaten a meal.
It made me smile.

I hurt myself at work today, and when I saw the blood,
it made me smile.

My boss offered me a bite of her sub, and I turned her down.
I felt strong.
it made me smile.

Nobody notices a thing, and that makes me smile.
It hits me though, that somebody must know.

I have no emotion, people assume I’m just having a bad day.
But really? Every damn day?
That makes me cry.

My clothes keep growing, or I keep shrinking, I can’t tell which.
Do you not notice my size 3 jeans are now 2 sizes too big, its only been 3 months.
That makes me cry

I’m back at the point where I’ll only wear long sleeves, you know why I used too. But don’t think to check again because it’s been a year.
This makes me cry.

People get better, and people get worse. it’s the ignorance of people who don’t understand that once you’re better, it will never be permanent.
Relapse is a real thing.
If people could understand that, damaged people, wouldn’t be so damaged.
This makes me cry the most.
