Happy In My Anorexia

January 30, 2012

“I have anorexia. Notice I didn’t say I “struggle” with anorexia – that is because I feel very much in control of my disorder. I know just how to make it work, and it makes me feel very secure. My mom and dad want me to give this up, but they don’t understand that to do that would be like losing my very identity. I am anorexic. I’ll die anorexic. This is what I want – it’s what makes me who I am. Why can’t everyone just let me be?”
