Finally, relief, I thought as I clenched the spinach in my hand I’d pulled out of the shower drain moments earlier, about to destroy the evidence. I proceeded to watch the evidence float away, and watched the toilet refill all the way back up, clear, no remnants for anyone to happen upon.

I’ve been alone all day. No one was present with me. I never imagined on my thirty-fourth birthday I’d engage in every eating disorder behavior that makes up my eating disorder. Never in a million years did I think that would happen, even yesterday, barely keeping my head above water drowning in my own tears.
I left each part of my wolf pack yesterday in tears. Because they have other things they need to do. And baby wolves, I guess, need to learn to survive on their own. But this baby wolf is failing at surviving.
