My story with Olsen Twins Anorexia began five years ago. It started out innocently enough; I was looking for ways to lose weight and I stumbled across a “hack” the Olsen twins had allegedly used to get their impossibly slender physiques. Little did I know, my decision to pursue this extreme diet was the first step on a treacherous journey with significant health repercussions down the road.
The relentless restriction of food left me feeling light-headed and tired, but also driven and determined in some odd way. Soon enough, it all became too much and the anorexia took over completely. People around me noticed drastic changes in my behaviour and attitude which made me become increasingly isolated. Worst of all, my body quickly became gaunt and emaciated - a reflection of how deep into darkness my mind had gone.
The mental battle waged on just as fiercely as the physical one did;constantly going back & forth between wanting to give up or keep trying bring myself back up from the depths of despair. As hard as it was, I eventually mustered up the courage & strength to reach out for help from family & friends who provided unwavering support during this difficult period of time in my life. That combined with some professional help proved to be invaluable in helping me overcome this debilitating disorder once & for all.
Anorexia is an insidious illness that requires determined effort & resilience to beat - but be assured that those steps you take along your journey towards recovery will have tremendous long-term payoffs if you stay committed & don’t give up hope!
