Inhaltsangabe zu „My Secret Life: A Memoir of Bulimia“ von Leanne Waters

In this non-fiction story of struggle and grief, 'My Secret Life: A Memoir of Bulimia' details one teenager's battle with bulimia nervosa. After years of bullying, Leanne Waters examines the development of her illness and looks closely at the psychological foundations of this ambiguous disease. It is a first-hand account of a secret world that lurks behind closed doors in daily life. A penetrating insight into the mentality of a bulimic, the story follows Waters' downfall from a high-achiever with tremendous potential to a shadowed breath of her former self. “It gradually became easier and easier to suppress the hunger pains and even tolerate the stabbing intensity of a truly empty stomach. I soon found myself enjoying the pain. It would spark in the lowest point of my stomach, light like a match and blaze until I thrashed in flames. Then it would tear north, shredding my sides and scorching beneath the skin that enveloped my chest. It was more than hunger. My insides screamed at a deafening pitch, unable to fight the devouring emptiness. Soon it was like my body turned against me in desperation. The hollow sting that I nurtured so affectionately began to eat away at me instead.”
