I've KNOWN for a long time that I have an eating disorder, but KNOWING and ACCEPTING are two different things. To begin the journey to wellness, one first knows. To recover, one accepts.

Acceptance that my eating
Is out of control,
That I do, indeed,
Have an eating disorder

On a fragile piece of paper;
But the rock of denial
Is holding it down.
Tonight I felt
The rock shudder,
Just a little.
Will it roll away
And free the paper
Before I am
