Cachexia | Polishing Dookie


I’ve been tweaking this for days, unsure of whether or not I should actually publish it, but I feel that it’s an important part of my story.  It’s a little personal, and a little uncomfortable, yet I think it needs to be seen.  I know I’m not the only woman this has happened to – having our symptoms discounted or dismissed, saying we just need to manage our stress better, or perhaps we need to take anxiety pills because all women are either neurotic, or fucking psychotic.  Be subservient, you’re a woman!  Obey, damn it!
