I Got Through It
I was a ballerina in high school. In ballet, the pressure to be pretty and perfect and THIN is ten times worse than the normal pressure of high school. I never felt good enough because I wasn't pretty enough, wasn't talented enough, wasn't THIN enough.
So I dieted. At least, that's what I called it. My weight went down, down, down, into the double digits, and my friends began to notice something was wrong, but anytime they confronted me I told them they were worrying too much, that I was okay. I was not okay.
But finally one day enough was enough, and thanks to my friends, I beat Ana. I got through it and survived and would not wish it upon anyone. It's a horrid disease that ruined my life and my dream of becoming a dancer, and I hope others can beat it like I did.
