Hey Anna

4. Hey Anna

This song is about the inner conflict between sense and anorexia (referred to as ‘Anna’ in the song). I battled this disorder in my late teens and it definitely came in waves of ‘OMG what am I doing?’ and ‘you’re worthless, fix yourself.’ I am proud to have been a healthy weight for 3 years now but I could never have done it without my incredible support network of family and professionals. To this day there are still times when “what the mirror shows is someone I don’t know,” but I am now strong enough to push through it. This song was written the day I first weighed in at ‘healthy’ after the worst of it.
