“When I was a teenager I really struggled with mental illness.
I felt worthless, ugly and felt like I didn’t fit in, and this caused me to develop bad eating habits and become depressed. Because I didn’t talk to anyone about what I was going through, my health got worse and worse and I ended up developing severe bulimia and was suicidal & self-harming daily. I was completely lost and would sometimes spend full days binging and crying.
After 6 years of this I decided to seek help because I couldn’t cope anymore, and at nearly 19 years old I started to turn things around. Now I’m happy and healthy and living life to the full! My days of depression and bulimia are long gone.
I’m hoping I can encourage others to seek help in the early stages so no one has to go through what I went through… and I also wrote a book all about my experience! Don’t give up. You are worthy of love and I believe in you.”
