Ana and Mia won. again.

I'm quitting my job.

I don't know what I'm going to do from here.
I've pulled the plug on everything.
If there is a God I'd be dead now.

I will write something longer and more coherent soon. I just wanted to say - I quit my job.
I am an eating disorder and nothing else.

Edit: Thank you readers for reminding me: I am so much more than just an eating disorder.


  1. I’ve just quit my job too, with nothing yet to go to.

    And, you are definitely a whole lot more than an eating disorder!

  2. i think it was the right descision to quit.
    everything i would love to say to you right now, won't make sense, so just one thing: you are so very very much and can be anything you want. you just have to find out what it is. THIS JOB was not it.

  3. You are only your eating disorder and nothing more if you believe you are, really, you are not. Your readers see so much more in you!

    Before you quit your job, did you really think about it? Did you really think about if it will make you any happier without a job and nothing to do, or will it really help you? Has this decision made you any happier?

  4. You're more than an eating disorder - you're an awesome writer!
    Alot of the entries on this blog are just beautiful :)

  5. you're everything ophelia, you just can't see that. remember how inspired you were after going to that school? don't you remember what you thought you could do? well here's your chance... now you're free from all that city bullshit you can do whatever you want and start living your life instead of just existing. If nothing else, your words are beautiful and true. There - that's something more than an eating disorder. Please, dearest, know that this too will pass.

  6. iiiiiiiiiii loooooooooovvvvvvveeeeeeeeee youuuuuuuuuuuuu.

"Here I am, sane and dry"

"I stayed there, staring at myself in the glass. What do I want to cry about?.... On the contrary, it's when l am quite sane like this, when I have had a couple of extra drinks and am quite sane, that I realize how lucky I am.
Saved, rescued, fished-up, half drowned, out of the deep, dark river, dry clothes, hair shampooed and set. Nobody would know I had ever been in it. Except, of course, that there always remains something. Yes, there always remains something....Never mind, here I am, sane and dry, with my place to hide in. What more do I want?....I'm a bit of an automaton, but sane, surely - dry, cold and sane. Now I have forgotten about dark streets, dark rivers, the pain, the struggle and the drowning...."

Love. Sick.

And finally, today, I cried; soaked the tissues and pillowcase like I had been longing to do for weeks. The most I had been able to manage recently had been dry crying with a scrunched up face and aching heart. Such relief now to be able to physically release emotions other than vomit.

What words do I use to write about the last few weeks? Crippling, torturous anxiety, studying for finance exams, exercising and exercising, bingeing and vomiting, seeing Gareth, fucking Gareth, hating Gareth, exercising and exercising, bingeing and vomiting. Overcome by the fear and confusion and heartache. Studying for finance exams, but really just exercising and bingeing and vomiting.

The exams are done now and I have been free from those chains for a week - definitely alleviating a great deal of the pressure from my mental crumbling. I was close to slipping back under into the darkness. The darkness of having complete loss of control, complete loss of everything to the sickness in my brain.
days …


We both knew what we wanted - of that there is absolutely no doubt.
We didn't have to say anything, from the start of the week, right up until the point where I was naked in his bed; we both knew.
About two weeks ago Gareth and a few of our colleagues had arranged to have a night out this Friday. We had a pretty tight knit group of 6 who often lunched together at work, but this was one of the few times we were actually going out together. From Monday Gareth was pestering me like he had before:  "Are you coming out on Friday, are we going out out, are we gonna have a big one..."  "Yes", I had replied, "of course." And I booked my waxing appointment and blowdry for Friday lunch, my mind made up about what I wanted.  I had been thinking what would I regret more; sleeping with him or not sleeping with him. I decided on the latter. I'd not been with anyone since Joe left in January and more than that, thoughts of Gareth were continually running through…
