Self Portrait

Bulimia led to countless encounters with countless toilets. Anorexia to doctors visits, Depression to antidepressants... Insomnia, sleepless nights. Anxiety and suicidal thoughts. Invisible, quiet, corrosive, debilitating, and almost impossible to escape. “From the outside looking in, its hard to understand. From the inside looking out, its hard to explain”. I know I am more than my mental state. I am more than just a face and a body. I am more than my daily prescriptions. I know I am more than all these things, but I don’t believe it.
