“I am forever engaged in a silent battle in my head over whether or not to lift the fork to my mouth, and when I talk myself into doing so, I taste only shame. I have an eating disorder.”

“Selfharm is not a trend. Anorexia is not a phase. Depression is not an act. Homosexuality is not a choice. Suicide is not the result of cowardice. I’m so sick and tired of picking on others because of a disorder or a choice.
