   I finished reading "Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia" by Marya Hornbacher. The book was very good, so well written, so honest. I loved the absence of the "revelation" that made her seek recovery. There was no "finding Christ" and things like that.
   She tells her story from the beginning to the present, describing the scenes and feelings and all. I could relate to a lot of what she wrote. The book is sad, but it tells the truth about the things that eating disorders bring.

   I consider Marya Hornbacher a very strong woman. Deciding to recover and be healthier and just.. escape from the ED cage is a brave thing to do. She says she is still underweight (or was by the time the book was published -- she went from 50 pounds to 100). There is no "100% recovery", in my opinion, because there will always be this little part of us, deep inside, that will not be cured.

   If any of you want to read the book, and I totally recommend it, you can find a free PDF if you google the title and author.
