"And maybe I was afraid of the intimacy, the exposure, the vulnerability. Or it may have been what so many eating-disordered women report: a fear of having their bodies seen as being excessive, having their faces show response, having their voices leap out, unbidden, uncontrolled, having their passion diverted from it's chose focus-death-into something more frightening still: life."
This is very true.
i agree with all of this completely,
though i suppose i don't see myself as being focussed on death.
I don't see a purpose to die when there are so many things left to achieve.
I am reading Wasted.
she wrote that book to turn people off of anorexia, bulimia, eating disorders,
yet her book appears to be a bible in our circle.
though the book is not done yet.
It is quite interesting.
