My dear, that reflection in the mirror does not define you. I know you think the dark shadows under your eyes have become a permanent trend on your face, but you are so much more than those. There are people in this world who could never suffer such as you have and be able to face the day. You are strong. I know your clothes are fitting looser, but that does not mean that your smile should be duller. Stress causes that, My darling, but you are still beautiful. Your eyes are so sad, and I know your smile never reaches your eyes, but just look at you. All you have been through and here you are, still breathing. You fight a war each day, and you win each time you wake up. Do not give up my beautiful girl. You have made it this far. Every day has made you stronger, and one day you will not have to fight any longer.

I never was a happy girl,
and I don't know if it shows.
This photo is from two years back,
when I waited to die soon.
My admission was willing,
but more with each day that goes,
I anxiously am yearning,
for me to get out soon.
I don't care that I'm far from ready,
but logic does say no.
The freedom of reality,
is too dangerously so.
One challenge follows the other,
it's like I never get to rest,
but it's for a speedy recovery...
I grew but I lost water weight,
and hence I didn't gain.
I am thus relieved and happy,
until come Wednesday.
It's when they will re-weigh me,
and I should have gained some weight.
After they review it,
they may again increase my intake. .
It's one day at a time now,
each sitch as it comes.
I wanna get outoutOUTofheredarnit.
But, "Paste a picture of your happy self",
and I've none for I never was.
Many things I alone can't change,
again bringing me to tears.
I've only self-contentment for happiness,
but This gets majorly in my way.
So I kinda had to give IP a shot,
and the Thoughts might have their say,
but I'm still here for now, aren't I?
My mood dips down but comes up.
Emotions make me deeply uncomfortable,
but here I am,
still in it to recover.
