It wins today. I can’t describe how cruel and sharp my life felt today. Like a massive beast consumed it. Like I was dying of suffocation. Like everyone had claws. I would have screamed and kept screaming, but there’s nowhere you can scream. There is no safe place.
I'm a former student of English literature, an editor and a creative writer who has been attempting to live with body dysmorphic disorder as well as severe anxiety and a recent diagnosis of Bipolar II. I believe that struggles with mental health are often lifelong and people in these situations need comfort, support and occasional moments of peace granted to them in order to survive.
