I remember when Wintergirls first came out, everyone read it and almost immediately people would give me the dirtiest looks because I was like Lia. I was to skinny and everyone knew my secret. I’d cry in the bathroom because when I walked in the halls people would shout “look a wintergirl” or “dead girl walking”. Remembering this part of my life makes me shiver and makes me so sad. To be honest I’m still sad. It scarred me and I can’t get it out of my head.
