It becomes an obsession, I assure you. Water, water, water – I used to hate it but now I miss the taste when I'm not drinking it. I read once that a person can die from drinking too much water in too short a time; it dilutes the salts of the body, or something like that. But I need it. We need it. Water, to counteract hunger. Water, to counteract food. I have been thinking about this for a long, long time. We need it, she and I. That's the scariest thing about anorexia. It splits your soul right in half.
