It seems that every time I get admitted into the hospital, or whenever I post a photo of my forearm with dextrose all over it – it freaks people out. 😆 I admit that I very rarely talk about my health anywhere online, what more with my personal life. Most of my social media accounts are locked now compared to in my late teens-early twenties when I would carelessly tweet and post messages online and not think of repercussions later on.
I have also been asked too many times the same question of what happened to you? by several people. From friends, to people I live with, people I don’t see often, people online, even people I don’t know who think I am too young to be where I am right now. Other than that question, they’re always shocked to find out that I have this illness such a young age.
I’ve come to laugh at the reaction process of people.. first they’re surprised, and then they’re shocked.. because I am so young, and I was so.. normal! Like how can this be ever possible, you’re skinny as shit, you don’t look sick at all!
Thank you guys for the concern, I appreciate it, I really do but it does get annoying getting asked the same question over and over again. Also, people pitying you.. again and again. The latter is definitely the worse.
