Hey Mom.

Do you know why your daughter is so skinny?

I do.

Do you know why your daughter doesn't like to swim?

I do.

Do you know why your daughter has dark circles under her eyes?

I do.

Do you know why she doesn't talk as much as she used to?

I do.

Do you know that she is struggling with her identity?

I do.

Do you know that she hates herself?

I do. 

Have you noticed that she doesn't like short sleeves anymore?

I have.

Have you noticed that she doesn't really have friends?

I have.

Have you noticed that she dresses like a boy?

I have.

Do you know that your daughter...might not actually be your daughter?

I do.

But I'm too afraid to ask you what you think about me, because what if your answer is...

 

"I don't."


The author's comments:

This is about me and my fear that no one notices if I'm okay. If you are depressed, suicidal, a self-harmer, or anything else, please comment on this. If you ever need to talk, I'm here.
