Abandoned Beliefs
- Recovering From Anorexia -

Click here for my updated website Thank you.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Stephan G. Rellet

Abandoned Beliefs is my offering to those suffering with anorexia. It is my sincere hope that sharing my recovery will lend support to those who seek it. Recovery is a process that often feels unbearable; I acknowledge this. However, the torture of anorexia is equally unbearable. The difference is this: Struggling through recovery yields gifts: the discovery of self, peace and contentment. Anorexia's only offering is imprisonment and death--of heart, of soul, of self. There is an incredible sense of peace and freedom awaiting those who bravely endure the trials of recovery. I know, for peace fills my life each day--I am free!
Whether you are beginning or are in the midst of your journey, I wish you success in discovering your sense of self and acquiring the knowledge that you are a special, lovable human being deserving of happiness. I wish you freedom.

My mind called out day and night
This is bad,this is right
Called out loud, demanding I...
Pledge allegiance lest I die
Obedience would take its toll
Would take my heart, would take my soul

Then a whispering voice rang through
Wished of me alliance,too
Its lure of wellness plagued my mind
Confused as to what I'd find
The elder voices scolded--screamed:
We'd lose all we'd ever dreamed

In my heart I know my choice...
to serve this strange and new-found voice
Lightened my heart, fed my soul
Filled that everlasting hole
What of this voice I came to know?
'Twas born in me, but did not grow

My mind sings out day and night
You're happy now; this is right
Keep your heart; keep your soul
Let freedom's peace take its toll
