Peggy (mom): It happened so often, I just thought it was normal…..or maybe I thought it was so abnormal I didn’t want to share it with anyone….the voices. Yes, THOSE voices…the ones that were constantly in my head. Some people may call it “self-speak” or “self-talk”….whatever their names were…I hate them. Funny though…as much as I hate them, I listen to them with total abandon. They are the ultimate authority.
They tell me how fat I am, how worthless I am, how I’ll never get better. They are perched on my shoulder constantly berating me.
