Favorite Quote:
"Soon madness has worn you down. It’s easier to do what it says than argue. In this way, it takes over your mind. You no longer know where it ends and you begin. You believe anything it says. You do what it tells you, no matter how extreme or absurd. If it says you’re worthless, you agree. You plead for it to stop. You promise to behave. You are on your knees before it, and it laughs."
— Marya Hornbacher


they think I'm doing better
but the voice is getting stronger
she's whispering in my ear
it's all that I can ever hear
my life is full of deceit
and yet I still will not eat
now I am going to be thin
even if it means letting her win.
