For the longest time I have struggled with a "self-sickness". One that I still work to overcome. This sickness is the false idea of fat- on an otherwise fit body. The "you're fine."' repeated in the background is to express that others indeed tell me "im fine", that I look good, but this ache, it's intrinsic and much harder to escape.
