"I spin and weave and knit my words and visions until a life starts to take shape. There is no magic cure, no making it all go away forever. There are only small steps upward; an easier day, an unexpected laugh, a mirror that doesn't matter anymore. I am thawing."

Our reactions to our own bodies are too complicated and deeply personal and dramatic and tortured and habitual and ingrained to rehabilitate through a casual conversation …the horrible truth fits so neatly into the language of weight and women that I don’t even have to disguise it. I can say some of the meanest things I think about myself, casually, in public. And it will sound normal.

Maybe there’s something a little bit wrong with that.
