I only eat fruits and vegetables. I drink a lot of water. Yet I feel no better. Everyday, the pain lingers. Some days, it’s screaming; a scream no one hears or experiences except me. Other days, it’s a consistent throbbing.
I had started to live from one set of applause to the next, one social media “validation” to the next, and when it didn't come fast enough, I questioned myself, my existence, my experience, I questioned everything.
