Everyone who has struggled with an eating disorder has a story. One Australian woman named Karlie almost let the illness of anorexia take her life until she realized it was time to fight back. It began in her early twenties after her brother died. It’s not uncommon for someone seeking control of their life after a traumatic event to resort to an eating disorder. Even Karlie admitted, “It was never about the food to me, it was always about control. I’d lost that control and I wanted it back.” Getting it back was one of the hardest parts.
