Nickelodeon Star Jennette McCurdy Pens Down Eating Disorder Story
In a HuffPost essay, the former Nickelodeon star has opened up about battling with an eating disorder ever since she was 11. And now she was looking to help others going through the same thing. Apparently, for quite some time, Jennette McCurdy used to provide justifications or excuses about her unusual eating if people approached her with concern. Over the next few years, she dealt with both bulimia and anorexia. But nobody in the entertainment industry ever tried to help her out. Maybe, because they had no incentive.
Eventually, her sister-in-law told her that she needed help. This realization helped her begin her journey for recovery. Jennette McCurdy shares how absolutely brutal and painful the whole recovery process was. After all, letting go of her eating disorder and starting to love her own body meant that she had to completely rebuild her whole identity. Fortunately, things are going better for the actress even if there are some dark moments where the eating disorder creeps back in. She’s staying strong despite the struggle.
