I have lost 20+ pounds due to severe anxiety.

Everyone says I look great. Do you know how it feels not to be able to swallow a mouthful due to being so anxious? Decidedly not great.

Imagine telling a cancer patient who has lost tons of weight that they look great? I don’t think so, that would be appalling.

But because I look and act normal in front of people, they don’t realize I have any illness at all.

Anyway, that is the lot of people with mental illness. No sympathy, no get well cards.

Just hell sometimes.
