My name is Jenni,
I am 48 years of age.
I have survived/suffered anorexia,
(with bouts of bulimia)
on and off since the age of seven.

Due to the fact that I became very
ill in February, 1999 ...
I vowed to start a website
to help others.

The pages created and links
I have researched for, come
from within my heart, in hopes
someone will benifit.

My motto is:
"Fight, fight, fight
and when the fight seems to diminish,
that's when you need to pick yourself
up and fight some more.
As difficult as it may be,
YOU CAN DO IT!

Your friend, in recovery,
~Jenni~


"Hanging"

The rope is fraying, as time passes by . . .
She needs you, to hear her silent cry.

Hanging on the edge of the cliff,
Waiting for the rope to break.
Can't you speak out a bit?
Please, just for her sake . . .

Hanging on the edge of the cliff,
Waiting just to fall.
Just open up your ears a bit,
Please, hear her silent call.

Hanging on the edge of the cliff,
Waiting just to die.
Just open your heart a bit.
Please, pull her from the side.

Hanging on the edge of the cliff,
Seeing her grave beneath.
Just help her out, a little bit.
Don't wait to hang her wreath . . .

If we all worked together and listened to, "the silent cry,"
We would all live free . . . as time passes by.

"Fight"

As I look to the stars late at night,
I pray for the strength to continue to fight,
Fight for my healing, I have the right,
Fight for my soul, that is lost in flight,
And fight for my life, fly as free as a kite.

As I look to the stars,
I pray for the end of all wars,
Fight for my healing, my emotion soars,
Fight for my soul, to open closed doors,
And fight for my life, as my destiny pours.

As I look,
I pray,
I Fight for healing,
I Fight for my soul,
And I fight, fight, fight,
For my life.
