Newsflash

I
Need
A
Job

EDIT: This needs to be amended to "I need a job that doesn't make me want to kill myself"

I want to write a book. Think I could do it? What would I write about?

I read through all your old posts in less than three days, even staying up all night one time... All good book-stuff. You go girl!

I think you could do it. What to write about? An author writes about what she is drawn to most.

Tell me about it! *Facewalls repeatedly*

Yes you could. Um, a magical stein? Some sort of high-fantasy epic?

Hello! I have been lurking around your blog for a while, and I must say I identify a lot.

I'm glad that in the end you found a job! As for the book, I'm sure you can write one. I've written one too, and even though it sucks and I wouldn't even dream about showing it to anyone, it has been an interesting journey of self-discovery. And now I'm writing another, and it's going much better!

I'm a healed anorexic. I wish I could say this with pride and happiness, knowing that all the bad things are over. They're not. After ten years of treatment, I have lived another ten as a "healed" person, but I have realized that you can never get rid of it. I'm always grappling at the world, feeling like I'm about to fall in this hell again. It's stressful, it's terrible. I'm not telling you to stop, fuck, I know how hard that is. I'm just saying that maybe you can be luckier than me, maybe you can help yourself in time before losing your life. Fight your anorexia.

And if you can't, then try to stop other people from developing it. The greatest satisfaction of my life was helping my cousin who was just starting to develop an eating disorder, and now I see her as a happy and healthy child eating at family dinners or out with her friends. It's lovely. We may be doomed, but we can help others. That's the only thing I have left to believe in.

Much love,
