My Decision To Get Help
Do you ever feel like their is a little voice inside of your head that tells you to purge? or forces you to restrict? It's as if you feel like a piece of shit if you have a small snack?
This was me. Everyday was a battle and I would cycle between binging and purging. I knew if I could stop the bingeing, then the purging would stop. The truth was that I was afraid of all the calories I had consumed, so I purged.
My days always started off really well and I felt so determined to not binge but at night it was a different story. I didn't know how to stop and felt like I couldn't control it, and that it was a habit Ingrained inside of me.
The only way out for me was inpatient treatment. Which was the best decision I have ever made. Treatment saved my life and now I can be there for my family!

“I was called a role model the second I made it in the industry, and I never felt like one,” she said. “I finally feel like a role model, and I am doing the things I am supposed to do in this world.
