1. Fear

Chapter 1

We don't know how to fight it, we don't know when it will come. We can't run, can't hide. I was eight when it first affected the way  thought about things. It changed my life. What we don't know is something has always been there. It takes over people's lives and when it does it's terrifying, unbearable and tortures minds . I'm beyond tired. Beyond scared. We're not ready. We have no control over when it comes and goes, that's the scary thing. From now on we won't just face our worst fears, we will seek them out. We will find it until it shows it's self for what it really is. There is only one thing on this earth that is more powerful than fear .That's love.


That's what I told my best friend, before she died.


The sun was shining but there was still a slight breeze that caused little bumps to appear on my arms. Me and Jenny were sat on the green, freshly cut grass. Talking. Talking about our future. What we wanted to be when we are older, Jenny always wanted climb to the top of Mount Everest. Were as me, I wanted to be a movie star, one of those with their names flashing in lights above the stage. I always used to tease her because she wanted to climb Mount Everest, but she was afraid of heights. I didn't know that it got to her as much as it did. I wish she would have told me. Mine was spiders and CLOWNS, I hated them but I never told Jenny. I always acted tough and like I didn't worry about anything in the world. Behind closed doors I was a coward and I knew how to hide it. Most teenagers are conscious about numerous things but me, I was the worst. I had to hide every spot and  every hair that was out of place had to be immediately eliminated. The worst thing I was most insecure about was my weight. Everyone you would see in magazines, on television and in the public's eyes were weightless. That's when I stopped eating. I would refuse food or hide it so I didn't have to eat it. I had developed a eating disorder. By the time I was fourteen I had lost nearly a stone and a half within two weeks. I had to tell someone but I couldn't tell my mum, I couldn't tell my teachers, the only person I could trust was Jenny, so I told her.


This is the story of how fear changed my life and ended my best friends.
