I can’t express my feelings

Growing up, I was not allowed to show or express any of my feelings. The more I did, the more I would get in trouble.

Strawberries and Granola

I just started back on keto on Monday. So far it’s been okay. Today I only had a small turkey burger for lunch and I was still hungry.
