@ people who have food issues cause of their illness
im sorry if eating has become more of a burden than a pleasure for you
im sorry if people dont understand and think youre just a picky eater
im sorry if youre afraid to eat, afraid of the pain or concequences that come with eating
im sorry if you cant talk about your food issues because its an “inappropriate topic” to bring up.
im sorry if people feel like theyre entitled to know your issues, im sorry if youve been robbed of that personal privacy.
im sorry if going to restaurants is really hard for you, you dont deserve to go through this, to have something that should be fun made into a hell
im sorry if you have to watch other people eat food that you love and that you cant eat cause of your illness.
im sorry if you have to starve all day when you go out because the place youre at has nothing you can eat
im sorry if you cant go out and be carefree about what you have to eat because you have to worry about what itll do to you
im sorry if theres a type of food you loved and you had to give up cause of your illness
im really sorry people think that youre just complaining over nothing when you talk about how much you miss not worrying or not being able to eat a type of food,
you have every right to mourn what your illness has taken from you, whether it be the food itself, the love of eating, the lack of worry, or the concequences of eating something, etc etc.
im sorry if the holidays have turned into the worst times for you, im sorry if family or friends arent understanding or if just watching everyone be able to eat anything any time they want makes you upset.
you have every right to any emotion this makes you feel
im sorry if people push off your issues to “oh if they just ate less/more theyd feel better”
im sorry if youre told to stop complaining because you “dont have it that bad”
your issues matter
and you will get through this.
theres alot of other things, im sure, butthis is all i can think of for now.
