|Version 1 HD Video|
I couldn't help but comment on my own movie story due to the ignorant and very upsetting comment I just read..So many years I thought that my movie would do others good since I became anorexic in the early 90's (not the 70's like the last person stated). However even in the 90's no one really talked about it or new much about it for that matter, even myself. Even while it was happening I didn't know. The movie idea was presented to me and I decided to go with it since it was the only way I new how to reach out to people, and it wasn't for money because I didn't get barely anything and no royalties. SO get that idea out of your head. From most feedback it unfortunately did more harm than good. I hear a lot about it being a poor movie, but to go into medical detail in the movie would bore anyone out of watching it anyway so they did the best they could with it by keeping it light but informative. It definitely did NOT go into detail or show the horror of it. It was definitely not a detailed informative movie. It was just to bring awareness to society and show one woman's struggle. It was a horrific and still is a nightmare I cannot get out of my head. There is no relief and no cure. I am a healthy woman and a mother of 2 beautiful children now who will hopefully never follow in my footsteps. God bless them! Its a constant struggle but my children help me get through every day when I look at their little faces. Anyway, I was NOT babied all my life I was, and still am the most independent woman you will ever meet. Also YES my parents did take me to court for medical guardianship to save my life. I was 18 and made my own dumb decisions at that age. That is what saved my life. I saw my dad crying in the courtroom (which I had never seen my dad cry in my life). At that point I said WOW look how much he really does love me. That was what it took, I guess to feel the love is what made me start to help myself. GOd bless anyone who is reading this that is in need of help. It is the hardest thing you will ever go through!
