ITHACA Online
The Diary of an Anorexic
 Myrto Pitaouli

205pp.
Kedros, 2010
ISBN: 978-960-04-3974-8

Run up and down the stairs ten times to burn off the few calories you’ve ingested from a rice cracker. Race non-stop round the playground at top speed during break at school. Force yourself to vomit, repeatedly. And fret about gaining weight when you’ve stopped growing, the scales say you’re a mere 20-something kilos, and blood tests show your system is on the point of collapse. Myrto Pitaouli describes the horror of anorexia nervosa that she experienced, and, happily, survived. Using diaries she wrote from 1991 to 1993, she recreates the nightmare that started when she was eleven and persisted for years, despite therapy and a supportive family including a mother who was a doctor. In her compelling memoir written for teenagers, she portrays her hard-won recovery from an insidious disorder that took over her life, distorting her image of herself and testing her loved ones to the limit.
