"You never come back, not all the way. Always there is an odd distance between you and the people you love and the people you meet, a barrier thin as the glass of a mirror, you never come all the way out of the mirror; you stand, for the rest of your life, with one foot in this world and no one in another, where everything is upside down and backward and sad."
Honestly, if you struggle with an eating disorder and haven't read "Wasted" by Marya Hornbacher then you should. It's textbook reading, but the writing is far from textbook. It rips my heart clean in two.
this is about a story i was told today by a woman in a relationship with another woman diagnosed with disassociative identity disorder. it broke my heart. i'm still writing and reading you guys' work. hey.
