about

A dying woman reflects upon her decades-long eating disorder and her experience as a palliative patient in this poignant memoir.

In March 2013 Michelle Stewart was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure due to her eating disorder and given only a few months to live. Determined to share her story while she still had the chance, Michelle began writing a revealing blog in which she chronicled her lifelong struggle and her experiences as a palliative patient. "I have had a 32-year dress rehearsal for the fate I now face," she writes. This memoir is a collection of the most poignant pieces of writing from that blog, supplemented with previously unpublished pieces of original poetry from the author.

Michelle Stewart was Communications Director at the BC Ministry of Health before leaving to start her own firm in 2012. Before going into communications, Michelle had a ten-year career in journalism. She died from renal failure in 2014.
