    Dear Ana

    You entered my life at a time in which I had no control and you took advantage.  You inhabited my life and left me rendered silent, tied up and gagged in the back seat, helplessly watching as I developed a personality and way of acting that was alien to me and those around...

    What Would I Say? . . .

    Love yourself from the inside out.  Stop staring at the mirror and believing something that just isn't true.  You have bought into an painful obsession that wasn't yours to purchase. You are holding yourself back from the freedom of being a well, strong person.  Love yourself...

    Hello Anorexia

    At one point in my life, I thought I had Anorexia. I was obsessed with losing weight and couldn't eat for a month because anything I ate, even an apple, later made me feel really guilty. Thinking of food just made me want to vomit. I was, and still am, very much overweight and I...

    I Never Thought I Could Hate Something So Much...

     If Anorexia was sitting next to me I would first slap it across the face, and then proceed with this: I hate you, more than I ever thought I could hate something. You took over my life for years, you almost killed my loved ones. You set a standard over me that I was never...
