[Blind Gossip] Everyone loves a fairy tale ending. But is that really the best way to describe this relationship?
There are no glass slippers or evil witches or magic potions in this story. There’s just a troubled marriage and a man who has successfully convinced his wife to return to the castle.
Most fairy tales end with the healthy and glowing female protagonist joyfully riding off into the sunset with their man.
Not in this case.
The past couple of months have been unbearable for her. She practically stopped eating but it was not because of the illness. Food was one of the few things she could control. She was very stressed at the prospect of reuniting with him.
Is she anorexic or bulimic?
I hesitate to attach a medical diagnosis to it. I will say that she is severely restricting food but she is not binging or regurgitating the food.
How much weight has she lost?
Approximately 14 lbs. Since there was no fat to lose in the first place, she is emaciated. She will have to wear many layers of clothing this winter to cover it up. If she has to travel to a warm weather destination that might be difficult.
This certainly does not sound like a happily ever after. Poor girl. We hope she gets the help and support she needs.
[Optional] What advice would you give her? Always use real names and keep your comments civil.
