Anorexia almost killed me: Troian
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.”
