‘I’VE LOST 45KG – AND NOW I’M FREEZING MY EGGS!’
Since her turn in Season Two, Clare Verrall has dominated headlines – and while many have been sombre as she discusses her ongoing battles with PTSD, this time she’s got happy news to share!
Tell us what you’ve been up to
since the show? Ahhh, well... It went really bad. After the show, I had a total breakdown basically. Oh, how upsetting – are you doing OK now? Don’t worry about it – it completely retriggered my PTSD. It was really bad... I attempted suicide twice. My parents paid for me to go to a trauma centre in March  and I spent a month there. Since then I’ve been just getting better and now I’ve been really well! We’re so happy to hear you’re doing much better! How has your love-life been going since the show? I’m still single. I really wanted to focus on not dating and learning to love myself. I’m only just now starting to dip my toe back into the idea of dating. I did set up a Bumble profile, however there are already four people using my photos and pretending to be me, so... Wow! No way! Yeah, so I’m still single, but just starting to get myself back out there. And I’m about to freeze my eggs! How exciting – tell us more... I start the process and medication and everything this month. I have to get off the Pill first, then they’ll be taking the eggs and harvesting them in February. Basically this has been my Christmas present to myself! Are you thinking about doing it
on your own? Ah, yeah! I definitely would try. I mean, I’m pretty confident about doing things on my own. Congrats – sounds like this year is going to be quite a big g year for you! Thanks! Another thing g is I lost 45kg last year...
Wow! How’d you do that? Exercising, ng, but mostly it’s your cortisol levels, which are your stress hormones. When someone meone has PTSD or something like that, your our body goes into fight or flight mode, , so [since I’ve been better] a lot of it has s fallen off. But being able to walk again ain – and walk up to 10 kilometres again, , like I used to – and eating better because I can stand up for a minute, e, rather than just ordering takeaway, it’s been a real year of change.
