I grew up in Miami in a close-knit household, raised by my Nicaraguan mother, my Cuban stepdad and my beloved abuela — my grandma. In the Hispanic community, women are supposed to be strong — to give help, not take it. Being strong was easy when I was young: I had a wonderful childhood, with good schools and family vacations. I dreamed of working for a national health and fitness magazine in New York City. Standing in an elevator — 5' 3" and curvy — next to the blond glamazons who looked so put-together, I felt totally inadequate.
To outsiders, my life seemed perfect. But inside I felt that I was just going through the motions. One thing that gave me a high was to severely restrict what I was eating, because this was something I could control.

I started dropping weight fast and became unhealthily skinny. To get them off my back, I agreed to an outpatient program. It was during intake for the program, while I was completing a questionnaire about how I was feeling, that it hit me that my anorexia was my way of coping with and masking my depression. With no friends or family to support me, the depression spiraled down to become so bad that I barely left my home.
My weight dropped so low that my heartbeat slowed. I was scared I was going to die, but too depressed to make any changes. I immediately felt better. Most important, that internal light flickered back on, and I was able to feel things again! I could also process my emotions in therapy. Now I accept all of me: happy-go-lucky me, grumpy-cat me, all-glammed-up me, no-makeup me, screw-up me and top-of-my-game me.

Between the medication I still take Zoloft and good psychotherapy, I grew strong enough to maintain a healthy weight, get out of my bad relationship and move back to Miami. Here I have family, old and new friends and a sunny climate that makes me feel good. It feels satisfying to give back to my community and to be able to write, which I still love. If I have to take medicine forever to be as fully present for my life as I am now, I will happily do it — I missed out on an entire decade!

Fashion a corset from a sail and some rope, come as a survivor from the Titanic, or even as Amelia Earhart herself! As our newfound friends lead us up the lush volcanic mountainside, we come to a shimmering palace of light and water. But who lives here?
