Anonymous: Why were you in the ER? You never explained the picture... 

I had terrible abdomen and chest pain, like my heart, and my friend insisted we get it checked out. Life on life’s terms I guess. The doctor accused me of trying to get pain pills after I had told him I was in recovery . I was angry as hell and ripped out my IV and left… really not one of my best moments.

"Eating Disorders are extremely effective alarm bells. Everything stops as we try to extinguish this fire burning you to the ground. But in the midst of our panic, we often fail to recognise that whilst the fire is a threat to your life, it’s not the only cause for alarm. The fire itself is an alarm; it is a grave warning that within you is a little arsonist, with an appetite for destruction… And you can put out as many fires as you like, but until you seek her out and make peace with her, she will remain greatest threat to your life."

How do you survive?

You just do.
There is no other choice,
no other viable options.

You throw yourself into it,
head first
and make a mess along the way.
Gain a few too many scars,
break some things,
mend others.

Eventually,
you find yourself with
a couple of friends
and a few precious tools.

You just have to.
You will.

"I think it’s weird that teenage girls know more about giving blowjobs than they do about masturbation. It makes me sick to my stomach that so many young girls think sex is just about a guy finishing."
