Anonymous Story 58

“After quietly fighting disordered eating and the associated amenorrhea for years, my artistic director called me into her office after company class. She told me she may not offer me a contract for the following season, and that part of the reason was because I was too heavy. I told her that my doctor had told me I actually needed to gain weight, and she responded by saying that doctors do not understand our world. We never spoke one-to-one again. She neither confirmed that there was no contract for me, nor did she say thank you and goodbye. My disordered eating spiraled for years and I never danced professionally again.”
