Couldn’t Have Said it Better Myself

“Nothing in the world scares me as much as bulimia.  It was true then and it is true now.  But at some point, the body will essentially eat of its own accord in order to save itself.  Mine began to do that.  The passivity with which I speak here is intentional.  It feels very much as if you are possessed, as if you have no will of your own but are in constant battle with your body, and you are losing.”

Marya Hornbacher, Wasted

  1. This is so true. Eventually, it’s like something snaps in you and this sheer biological instinct for survival takes over. Like being possessed.
