THIS IS WHAT MY ABORTION WAS LIKE

I was 22, had a good job and was in a long-term relationship when I had an abortion. It started like I expect it does for everyone – my period was late. I was on the Pill but sometimes got really paranoid when the crimson tide hadn’t come a couple of days after it should have, so I bought a pregnancy test. I’d done this a couple of times before,…

SO MUCH MORE THAN THIGH GAPS AND COLLARBONES

Nancy Tucker devised a fiendish system of plastic bags and shorts with removable weights. All her energy was spent on putting together clever schemes to deceive her friends and family, teachers and doctors. Day after day, she didn’t eat a thing. Tucker’s memoir The Time In Between is a painful yet artful account of the throes of anorexia, and later, bulimia. Painful is the right word because when Tucker describes…
