i feel bloated all the time, and I can never lose weight. It’s such a small, mundane issue but it makes not sleep at night, it makes me cry whenever I think about it or feel it and it makes me hate to look at myself in a mirror. I just feel so ugly. It makes me self conscious — like if I’m not pretty then I can’t make friends or talk to boys. I try to wear nice clothes but I feel like they never look good on me but they look good on other people — even if they’re bigger as well. I I don’t know why I can’t just love myself but I just don’t. I’m also scared that bloating is a sign of something really bad because I looked it up and it said it was a symptom of cancer. I want to believe I’m being irrational. But it seems so true sometimes that I don’t know what to think. I feel a little paranoid sometimes.
