Quote of the day

Yet, despite my learning, I had many moments of secret shame….I remember vividly the feeling of being wrong in my clothes….I believed that the low quality of my clothing confirmed an indelible quality that was in me….Like a shoddily made, ill-fitting piece of clothing, illness strengthens any idea you may have that you are unworthy.  All your waking hours, every feeling, sensation, thought, is filtered through a body that feels wrong to you….You walk as in a second skin, one that marks you, at least in your own mind, as less than others, damaged material.
