“I was seven when I began to sputter, kamikaze-like, go aflame, and die. It was not an accident. I did not fall. It was a choice, to jump down this deep dark hole.
-Shawnna R. Burt, author
“I had to break free from my painful history in order to survive. I had to let it all go. Some people think too much, fight too much, and talk too much (or not at all). I was bullied all through school. I chose to go inward, to self-destruct. I chose an elegant waltz with my own demise, a grand and epic symphony of masterful self loathing. I chose an eating disorder.”
– Shawnna R. Burt, author
