In The Corner:

I didn’t think I’d ever go back there. 

It was a time in my past when the darkness had overshadowed the light. 

And yet there I was, back in the corner.

I curled myself up into a ball and tried to make myself as small as possible. 

Rocking back-and-forth was comforting. Nobody could hurt me here. I was alone but I was safe. 

But this time I wanted somebody to find me. 

NB: This is totally fiction. I have never found myself in a corner curled into a ball rocking back-and-forth. I did have an eating disorder for 10 years but I’ve been lucky. There are many others though, who haven’t. This story is for all those who can relate.
