It's that time again..

"Some of us use the body to convey the things for which we cannot find words."-Marya Hornbacher

" 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."-Laurie Halse Anderson

" I think back on things that happened. I bet you think you can pinpoint where it started for her. It’s easy to think that, when you look back at something as a whole. But when you’re living it, day by day, it’s like you’re in the belly of something and you can’t see it’s whole shape from the inside."
-Adrienne Maria Vrettos

" She examined me, she looked at me critically and said, "Why are you trying to starve yourself?" To keep myself from feeling love, from feeling lust, from feeling anything at all."-Joyce Carol Oates

"That paradox would begin to run my life: to know that what you are doing is hurting you, maybe killing you, and to be afraid of that fact--but to cling to the idea that this will save you, it will, in the end, make things okay."-Marya Hornbacher

"I'm a girl
I'm only thirteen
My body rots
Cause I won't fucking eat
I'm a silent star on the b-roll
I'm a mirror fucking image of no control
Give me an award
I conquered food again
What else is better in life than to purge my pain?
If I cut, I won't look like that
If I cut, If I cut,
I won't feel like this shit." -The Distillers

" I may not be in control of anything else, but I am in control of my body."-Karen Carpenter

"Please die Ana
For as long as you're here we're not."-SilverChair

"Every day I fight a war against the mirror
I can't take the person starin' back at me."-Pink

"Shedding off one more layer of skin
 Keeping one step ahead of the persecutor within."-Bob Dylan
