Asked what the happiest moment in her whole life was, Virginia Woolf responded 'with a shining face…. I think it’s the moment when one is walking in one’s garden, perhaps picking off a few dead flowers, and suddenly one thinks,‘My husband lives in that house, and he loves me.'

  2. Hi Emma,
    I also could not find an email address, but I have a question about anorexia. I am an emetophobe, meaning I have a severe fear of vomit and vomiting. I have noticed that many of the "superskinny" participants on Supersize Vs. Superskinny say that they feel sick as soon as they eat, and I have been wondering if these poor eating habits, or even eating disorders, may come from a fear of being sick. My behavior at one point became dangerously similar to those of an anorexic due to my crippling fear of throwing up. Is there anything you know about a correlation?
    Thank you!
