Shell by Michelle Stewart



Michelle Stewart always knew in her heart that her dual eating disorders would kill her. By the time she was forty-eight years old, more than thirty years of self-imposed starvation, binging, and purging had ravaged her organs. In May 2013 she was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure and given only a few months to live.

Shell is a collection of pieces of writing from that blog, along with her previously unpublished original poetry.
