  • Paula Abdul started dancing at a young age and she learned that she didn't fit in physically, which led to her being rejected countless times at auditions.
•
She went to a dance camp at the age of 15 and that's where she learnt how her dance friends kept themselves so thin. They would make themselves vomit after they ate. •
So at the age of 16, Paula began to use this unhealthy tactic as a way of controlling her weight. This was the start of her 17 years in the hell of bulimia.
•
Paula rose to fame when her talent was discovered and the desire to stay thin intensified. She felt nervous and out of control, and all she could think about was food. Food numbed the fear and anxiety. She would eat and thn punge. •
In 1994, Paula decided to seek professional help and went through a month-long bulimia treatment programme. Finally, her 17-year battle came to an end. •
Through therapy, Paula realised that her bulimia was a way of suppressing her feelings. Dealing with her neglected emotions helped her to recover too.
•••
Thus, don’t keep everything in all the time. Find a trusted adult to speak to or look for a professional who can help you. You don’t have to go through this alone. #rockthenakedtruth
  • It may be hard to cut someone loose, but sometimes it is necessary. Find that courage to walk away. It will hurt for a while but you will feel much better in time. #rockthenakedtruth
