‘One day I was faced with a choice – to die or to live – and I am glad I made the right one…’

Sometimes I forget about ‘An Apple a Day’ and then I get a message like this from a reader. It plunges me back into all that, and some days it can be painful as well as uplifting… Anyway, it means so much if one’s books have made a difference. Thought I’d share her beautiful words:

Hi @emmawoolf I read your book An Apple A Day and I just want to say thank you!❤ I’ve spent years battling depression and anorexia, and even now, when I am much better, I still have an eating disorder mindset. Unfortunately it’s not easy to get over. Your book is amazing, thank you for speaking up, saying all the things no one is saying, acknowledging that this is a life-threatening disorder. For all the times when I felt alone and utterly misunderstood, your words made me feel less alone. I never thought I will get better and live a life without fear of food. But one day I was faced with a choice – to die or to live, and I am glad I made the right one. Thank you so much, you are extremely talented, your words are beautiful! I wish you to always be this strong, to be healthy and never give up! Life is beautiful, if we would only let it be ❤ Lyuba Stoeva
