ANOREXIA
By Isabelle Hogg
In her early twenties - Isabelle suffered from anorexia. It was a real shock to her because she thought it was something that only happened to teenagers. She believes it's important to be open about eating disorders - because so many people suffer from them in private. She also believes it's important for sufferers to find something they enjoy doing - so they have something positive in their lives to keep them going. Isabelle's lifeline was dancing.

I watched this Video clip and would like to congratulate her on recovering. I am a 19 year old professional ballet dancer with anorexia and although I have been admitted to hospital twice have not recovered. I commend what she has done and in my heart hope that I too will one day want to recover. Fallen-Angel
