I was trying to explain my situation to myself. My situation was that I was in pain and nobody knew it, even I had trouble knowing it. So I told myself, over and over, ‘You are in pain’. It was the only way I could get through to myself. I was demonstrating externally and irrefutably an inward condition.
— Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted
Everything is dark
It’s more than you can take
But you catch a glimpse of sun light
Shining, shining down on your face
