Noticed

By Sarah Hawkins, TIWP Student

You noticed me eating less.
“Skinnier”
You noticed my sleep become non-existent.
“Disappointing”
You noticed my grades slipping.
“Lazy”
You noticed my emotions become erratic.
“Disrespectful”
You noticed me lock myself away.
“Rude”
You noticed my appearance change.
“Gross”

You didn’t notice my tear-stained cheeks. You didn’t notice my long sleeves in hot weather. You didn’t notice my meals consisting of ice, gum, and water. You didn’t notice my hair falling out. You didn’t notice me fading away. You didn’t notice my cries for help. You didn’t notice me dying.
“Depression”
