I’m not sure how I thought it *actually* happened, but when I was 7 a friend told me that Jewish men and women couldn’t have sex, so I must have been adopted. I believed him for three years.
My body is recovering from anorexia. After starving myself, and over-exercising for years, last summer I finally got myself the help I needed and began to let my body heal.
