Eat

Standard

props to eating disorder recovery groups for this

EAT

When recovery is not all yoga mats and tea and avocados, it is work
It is waking up so hungry you are nauseous but swallowing down breakfast anyways
It is an hour to finish a snack. It is your stomach throwing a tantrum
And telling acidic voice in your head that she has the wrong address.
Trying to ignore the calorie counter in my head is like trying ignore the television subtitles
Every time you asked me if I was full, I heard you say fat,
And I’m trying, trying so hard not to do that
This is teaching my body how to forgive
This is teaching my brain how to apologize
