sometimes you get away with a mistake and other times life forces you to watch the one you love, love some one else......

she looked in the mirror
what everyone else saw is not what she pictured

she saw ugly, she saw fat and unlovable.... we saw beautiful and perfect

she wouldn't eat
it started out small
a skipped meal no dessert

she lost weight she exercised constantly her heart couldn't handle the stress

she's laying in a hospital bed
her battle's not over

ThinkGeek asks: did you know that Vulcans eat cookies only once every seven years?

This is really honest and true...nice work. It's wonderful when people draw attention to the things society likes to overlook.
