Her friends, worried for Lydia’s health, decided to contact her parents.
It took five or six doctors for me to get diagnosed with anorexia, when to everyone else it was blatantly obvious
One even prescribed me appetite-increasing pills
However, the threat of hospital resulted in her developing bulimia. She would binge eat prior to appointments with the doctor, only to make her self sick after the weigh-in.
Some nights I’d tear up the kitchen, eating everything in sight before making myself sick.
There were times when I looked in the mirror after a shower and was frightened by what I saw, but mostly I was too blinkered to realise.
I started drinking too, which only fuelled my appetite and purging.
I would drink secretly in my room, maybe two bottles of wine a day.
My parents found 40 bottles under my bed that I was hiding
Fortunately, over the past year she has been making a steady recovery and has now written a book to share her experience with others, hoping that it will help young people understand their own unhealthy eating problems and prevent people from suffering like she has.
Many friends and people I know have shown me great sympathy, following my journey with interest and concern, and not judged at all, and I feel so lucky for this, and am truly amazed by people’s compassion
Eating disorders are so common now, yet so few people understand them.
People need to see what is behind the sad eyes of someone suffering with these illnesses, rather than see only ‘bones’
