I am wearing a dress today that I hate. I keep it because it’s a color that I need for academic functions, but it’s a plain jersey dress that doesn’t feel flattering when I’m bloated. And, guess what? PMS central over here. I can feel the dress clinging on my back where I feel a little more round-in-the-hips than usual. It’s flowy, so when I sit, I feel my flesh crumpling in a way I detest.

I need to donate this dress, probably. I never feel good when I wear it. It disappoints me every time and makes me want to disappear, be smaller, be nothing.

Day 129.
