Anorexia Almost Killed Me - Introduction
This is my introduction video to my story of anorexia, which will become a series of videos created as a timeline. In this video interview I am shortly covering what it is that I will be walking through and explaining in my upcoming interviews so that you get perspective on what to expect. I am going to share with you my story of how I grew up, from the age of 6, what it was in my world and my reality that lead me to develop an eating disorder and how I never got free even though I went to several different treatments and rehabilitation-centers.
I explain how my eating disorder started and how I experienced myself within that.
What can you do as a parent if your child suffers from an eating disorder? And how can you prevent this from ever occurring? Why don't the treatments work? What does work? How can you stop an eating disorder? Can you be cured from an eating disorder? What helped me?
Through me, sharing my personal story of how I grew up you can get a better perspective on what it is that leads a child to stop eating. I am sharing what an eating disorder actually is and how it can manifest in its most severe forms. What is it that leads a person to starve her/himself?
I will not sugarcoat or glorify what it actually is to suffer from anorexia/bulimia - I will tell you the real brutal truth and all the details, I will share with you what goes on in an anorexics mind, what is the thought-patterns, what is the experiences, why isn't it simply just to start eating again? Does an eating disorder have anything to do with eating/food at all? Why was it impossible for me to start eating? Are people with eating disorders just spoiled brats? How do the media influence a person with anorexia/bulimia? Is this just a welfare-problem? I will be covering this and so much more in my upcoming videos.
I was unable to stop this on my own - I would have been dead right now I wouldn't have received the help that I got from Desteni and my agreement-partner. This is not something that a person can do/go through alone - when anorexia/bulimia becomes a complete possession than it will lead the person to slowly killing oneself and therefor major assistance and support is required.
I will dedicate my life to help others in the way that I got help so that we together can stop the self-abuse and self-hate, to finally be able to start directing oneself and start to live for the first time ever.
It's never too late - I was balancing on a fine line between death and life and just when I was sure I was going to die I actually got help to stop and change. I am still here today and with a lot of help from the participants in the Desteni-group I have now stood up from hell. I will share my story unconditionally and if you require more assistance/support - don't hesitate to contact me.
In my blog I will share specific self-forgiveness-statements in relation to what
it is that I am speaking about in each video interview, so that you can get further support in what tools you can use to stop the thought-patterns, behaviors and memories.
