This Father Would Sneak Into His Daughter’s Bedroom Just to Check If She Was Alive, But Why?
9She sank into depression
Her father recalled how things ultimately kept getting worse as Gemma sank into depression. She even started cutting herself. Suddenly, to their surprise one day, things began to change although not in the way that they expected. From starvation, Gemma started overeating. Her condition had taken a turn to another extreme.
10She soon developed Bulimia
Gemma began binge eating and started gaining weight rapidly. She would suddenly start voracious bouts of eating as much food as she got her hands on. Sometimes her portions turned out to be enormous. She would end up eating 6,500 calories a day and that’s the equivalent of what a professional bodybuilder needs to eat in one day. She would consume the amount in 20 minutes.
11Binge eating and vomiting
This binge eating soon turned to severe vomiting and her condition turned to Bulimia which is another form of eating disorder. A person eats huge amounts of food in one moment and then starts vomiting the next. Gemma even started hallucinating and would often faint.
12Her weight increased three times
Gemma’s weight increased thrice her normal size in just a year. But, gradually with support from family and friends including her boyfriend, she started getting free from this vicious cycle. Gemma got out of her unhealthy lifestyle and started a new life for herself. It seemed like a brand new chapter of her life was opening up as she gained freedom from her eating disorders.
