Does anyone else hate wearing “real clothes”?
Recently I’ve been dealing with body dysmorphia issues. I went off of BC pills about 5 months ago for the first time in 16 years. Yes, I started BC when I was in my early teens to help lessen my extensively long periods, induced by Endometriosis. Since then, I’ve been accustomed to taking BC pills concurrently and only having a light period every 3 months or so. I decided to give my body a break from pumping it full of hormones for almost 2 decades- and it has been an emotional whirlwind to say the least. I’ve been quietly dealing with my periodic spells of anxiety, but I want you to know that you are not alone- I’m sure that someone following me has gone through the same thing, and it’s reassuring to know that even the strongest people have their own demons to battle.
Joe wanted to take me out for dinner the one night of the week that we got to spend together and I sat on my closet floor not wanting to get dressed because I hated all of my clothes and didn’t feel like my normal confident badass self. Luckily, Joe convinced me to get ready and we went out and enjoyed my favorite Mexican food and I felt stupid for allowing anxiety to take over my happiness.
We can’t control when these things consume our mind- but we can practice self love and hopefully you have someone loving who cares for you and can help talk you out of being down or depressed. You aren’t alone- I promise there are people out there that have these struggles and don’t share them.
