Example text

I was not depressed. I saw death as a solution for problems, as a way to escape all distress. I was expecting it. I wanted to learn firsthand what it meant. At that time, right before my 15th birthday, according to other people, I was really thin. ) I was 5 feet 6 inches tall and I already weighed about 101 pounds (after I lost lots of weight during Passover and the summer vacation). I was obsessed, anxious, and occupied with death. It was my ninth grade teacher who first noticed the dramatic change in me.

Maybe this caused my mother to hide and refrain from talking about things. Only last year, when she was interviewed by the Spielberger Foundation about her experience in the Holocaust, did my grandmother begin to open up about it. My grandmother is a very balanced person, with really remarkable self-confidence and behavior. Growing up, she symbolized for me the shift between being demanding and supportive. Despite her life history of starvation, settling for very little, fearing capture and death, and fearing the future, my grandmother was the only one who did not try to push food into my mouth.

I feared emotions and sensations, so I did not want to experience my growing sexuality. I searched for some internal cause for my problems, thinking there was something bad inside me. For me, a child was a symbol of innocence; so, naturally, drives, sexuality, and growing up became symbols for evil. I wanted to be good; therefore, I wanted to stay young. I was afraid that growing up would expose me to internal needs and drives I might not be able to control. Even today, I resent things that I cannot control, and I always try to be in control.
