‘When I was 14 I weighed 17 stone and was tormented by bullies who called me fat. I was teased and called fatty at school. I felt so ashamed that I became obsessed with losing weight.
“I used to eat in my room but was consuming less and less. I used hold my arms under a hot lamp hoping it would make me lose more weight.”
‘I got incredibly skinny, you could see all my bones jutting out. But I preferred looking like that to feeling fat. At my skinniest I weighed less than 7 stone. I barely ate anything. But with the help of my family I’m on the road to recovery.

I have a disability which I will never allow it to get the better of me. I also will not let anyone hate on me because of my disability.
“I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is, but I really am scared of eating solid food. I loved food. If somebody left something on their plate I would eat it.
“I loved chips and kebabs. I used to wake up at 5am and eats tons of chocolate bars that were in the cupboards. I still don’t like to eat in front of anyone but at least I am not starving myself.
“I won’t eat anything during the day and I sleep at lot because my cerebral palsy causes me pain. At 10pm I will eat something in my room, then have more at about 4am.”
