My life gets harder as time goes on.
My first job was easy.
Smile at the camera and look pretty.
Now I'm too fat for anyone to hire me.
All the pills I have to take and the smiles I have to fake.
I feel like there's no way out.
I'm becoming trapped.
I want to be normal again and myself.
I'm not even allowed to date.
Everything I do is fake.
None of the choices that should be mine are not made by me.
My walls are closing in and there is no turning back.
My life is spiraling downward.
I'm not seeing a crack or a bit of light at all.
I am no longer myself,
I have wasted away.

Cheer up! I'm sure that someone who is as great at this as you deserves more than the crap than you're giving yourself. Best of LUCK!!!
