Anorexia al­most killed me: Troian

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Troian Bel­lis­ario (right) says that her bat­tle with anorexia al­most killed her and there was a point in her life where she was just eat­ing 300 calo­ries a day. The Pretty Lit­tle Liars star says that she is now 10 years into re­cov­ery, re­ported Con­tact­mu­sic.

“There is a part of my brain that de­fies logic. Once, it com­pletely con­vinced me I should live off 300 calo­ries a day, and at some point, it told me even that was too much. That part of my brain is my dis­ease, and there was a time when it had ab­so­lute au­thor­ity over me,” Bel­lis­ario says. “It al­most killed me, and you can see that even though I have lived in re­cov­ery for 10 years now, it still finds loads of fun, in­sid­i­ous ways to thwart me to this day.

“Through hard in­tro­spec­tion, in­tense med­i­cal and men­tal care, a sup­port­ive fam­ily, friends, and a pa­tient and lov­ing part­ner, I sur­vived, which is rare. But I don’t want to just sur­vive that part of my life. I want to cre­ate in re­bel­lion. I want to stop look­ing at the clocks.”
