reblog my selfie or ill cry

Okay I tried to hurry and post this before I started crying but it’s too late, lol.

This is a photo from about a year ago. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 3 years ago and it’s been hell. As a 13 year old, you already have plenty of self-image issues, and I was constantly losing and gaining weight. I felt ugly all the time. When I was hospitalized a second time I lost 30+ pounds, I wouldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep, and this disease was basically taking over my life.

Before this gets anymore depressing (and I start crying even more), I just want to say thank you. For every reblog, like, and compliment. Being a black chronically ill teenager doesn’t give you the best self confidence, but today showed me how beautiful black women and men are despite any ailments or imperfections we have.

I was bugging y'all with all my other selfies but for this one, I just want to reach out to my Crohn’s fam, and let y'all know that you’re beautiful and if you ever need to talk, I’m always here.


some mandatory eid selfies from ur fav (and bc i’ve been tagged for these face post things like 20 times at this point and have done none)
