Sample text

As I read what various other people had written about the disorder, including a master’s thesis by a former anorexic, and accounts of the etiology and treatment of anorexia by both therapists and researchers, I became scared that I couldn’t match their quality and insight, or write anything new or original about the disorder. I became convinced that whatever I wrote was not going to be as good as what had already been written. Fear of ridicule and rejection immobilized me. I became depressed, and did not want to read or write anything further about anorexia.

This kind of comparison continually haunts the anorexic. Years earlier, even if I had had something to write about, I would not have let myself write. And years later, I doubtless would have felt anxious, but probably could have stood my ground. But at that time, although I had managed to write the book, I lacked a center strong enough and an identity cohesive enough to connect with anything comforting inside. Similar circumstances might well make anyone feel anxious and stressed, but competing to lose, while providing a safe haven, could not help me master that situation.
