,Fat Friend"

I am the "fat friend"
I am the friend that pokes and prods
I am the brunette friend
I am the friend who cries herself to sleep
I am the friend with horrible anxiety
I am the friend with terrible paranoia
I am the friend that screams because she doesn't know what else to do
I am the friend
With no
Medication to help her
I am the friend who refuses to look in the mirror
I am
"That friend"
Something I promised myself
I'd never
Be

I wrote this a few years ago when my mental health spiraled out of control. I'm better now, but this is for sufferers of similar things, and I encourage them to seek the help they need; they deserve.

I wrote this poem a few years ago when my mental health spiraled out of control. I'm better now, but I encourage sufferers of similar things to seek the help they need; the help they deserve. No one deserves to feel the way I felt a few years ago, and I want as many people to get the help they need to get that help.
