Ella, 28, has eating disorder for 20 years, participant of Project 2020
“Her eating disorders began at very young age, around first grade. As a young child she went through a very difficult trauma and used food as a an escape, where she had full control. The fat protected her.
At home her parents used to hide all the candies and the moment she was alone, she was looking the forbidden food and ate and ate.
Even when she was full, she kept on eating. At home they didn’t take her situation seriously, even when she was gaining more and more weight. She tried to fight herself, but it always ended in defeat…”
