Ana: A Memoir of Anorexia Nervosa

by Syanne Centeno

“Starving was my way of coping with life. If I was starving, then that meant that I did not have to face reality. I did not have to think. When you’re starving, you cannot think. Every day feels like an out-of-body experience, and everything sounds like you are swimming underwater. When you have Anorexia Nervosa, you aren’t livingâ?¦ you are merely existing. You become a walking corpse of the person you once were. Your life becomes about finding ways to satisfy your disorder and nothing else really matters. You know that there is a chance that you won’t wake up the next morning, but keeping the Anorexia alive is more important than keeping yourself alive. You convince yourself that as long as you are hungry that somehow everything is okay. This was my life for 10 ½ years. My name is Syanne Centeno and I found Anorexia as an eight-year-old little girl. You could say that I accidentally stumbled upon this illness, or maybe IT actually found ME. I didn’t know what Anorexia was, and had never heard of it. I actually didn’t hear the term “Anorexia Nervosa” until I was 14, but had unknowingly been engaging in eating disorder behavior for years prior. Anorexia is such a complex, perplexing disorder. Trying to explain why I developed this as a child is nearly impossible. The only thing I can do is write down my experience and take you on a journey in my shoes in hopes that this will help someone somewhere understand the realities of living with an eating disorder.”

This is the account of Syanne’s journey with severe Anorexia Nervosa (which she named “Ana”), a deadly psychiatric illness that haunts thousands of young girls and women each year. Throughout her honest, gut-wrenching tale she relives the horror of battling “Ana” for over a decade starting at the age of just eight-years-old, and how it nearly took her life. Along with Anorexia Nervosa, Syanne speaks of the other mental illness’s she struggled with such as Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, and self- mutilation. Without holding back, Syanne highlights the realities of living with an eating disorder, and what it took for her to overcome it.

by Pete Gable

You have no idea to what extent your life, what you believe in, what your like and dislikes are, what your buying habits are, everything, is and has been given to you by people who seek to manipulate and direct you towards their benefit.
This is the story of a man who was the first to discover how to manipulate the masses and once he had done so, nothing was ever going to be the same.

He created the consumer society, he decided how cars were going to be sold, who smoked and how and who you elect your politicians and lawmakers.

The wrld you live in is his invention and you have never heard of him.

Mafia, Marriage, & Moonshine: Italian family’s life in the Neighborhood of Gangsters

by Frank Passalaqua

What does almost being buried alive, a fourteen-year old girl being forced into marriage by a gangster, bootleg operation in the basement, child kidnapping, and meatballs have in common? This is all part of my family history. These unusual but true stories cover the immigration of my grandparents from the Italian island of Sicily to the United States. It is about living through a plague, raising a family during prohibition, mob influence in an Italian neighborhood, and life through the first half of the twentieth century.
