Une fille anorexique guérit grâce à l'amour
Chiara Schober est une adolescente qui vient du Liechtenstein. Alors qu’elle souffre de douleurs à l’estomac au début de l’adolescence, elle décide de manger moins.
“J’ai commencé à me sentir coupable quand je mangeais parce que je n’avais jamais faim et j’ai commencé à manger de moins en moins parce que je ne voulais pas manger juste pour le plaisir”, témoigne-t-elle. Mais sa grand-mère est là pour la soutenir et l’aider à se sentir mieux.
Puis un jour, c’est le drame. Sa grand-mère décède et Chiara, dévastée, voit son poids baisser à nouveau. Elle ne mange qu’une pêche pas jour, soit 39 calories. Elle devient de plus en plus squelettique, incapable de contrôler sa descente aux enfers.
Un jour, les médecins le lui disent très clairement : son corps ne sera pas capable de la maintenir en vie beaucoup plus longtemps à ce rythme.
Chiara comprend que c’est maintenant ou jamais, il faut faire quelque chose.
C’est là qu’elle rencontre Jason. Elle tombe amoureuse de ce beau jeune homme et réciproquement. Il l’encourage à manger, l’invite au restaurant et achète des snacks comme du popcorn pour qu’ils grignotent à deux.
I know I don't have a perfect smile, I know I don't have perfect hair or perfect eyes or nose. I know I'm not perfect at all but who cares. No one is perfect, everyone has imperfections but exactly those imperfections make us perfect. From the inside. We have to accept ourselves just the way we are and make the best out of it. I have to accept the mistakes I've made and can't change anymore and I have to accept my imperfections. From the moment on which we start accepting mistakes, we start being perfect needed to say this and thought I'd post a selfie to challenge myself, I really need to work on accepting myself as well. So I shouldn't be ashamed of looking the way I do! School started today and I really want to get out of my depression and gwt better with my eating disorder for this year, last year was horrible depression wise and it only makes it worse if I keep hati g myself so much. But this year I'll fight and try my best and I want everyone else who's struggeling to do it with me because together we can!☺️
Lentement, Chiara apprend à associer à nouveau nourriture et plaisir. Et surtout, l’amour de Jason lui donne des forces. La force de s’en sortir. Elle n’est plus seule dans sa bataille contre la mort.
Peu à peu, repas après repas, Chiara parvient à reprendre du poids et redécouvre la joie de vivre. Aujourd’hui elle a retrouvé un poids santé et rayonne.
Just a little reminder for " #motivationalmonday ". Whenever you're struggeling and thinking about giving up, believing you're not strong enough or feeling like everything is too much. Do not ever give in into those thoughts. Life totally is worth it, whatever situation you are in atm. Honestly, there's no point in harming yourself, it's not the solution to any problems. Actually, it just makes everything worse. That's something I needed to learn myself. My body somehow refuses food when I'm really upset which caused my eating disorder with 12. I tried to help but forgot myself. You should never ever forget yourself and think you're less worth than anyone else. Whenever you feel like that, tell yourself differently. Tell yourself you're worth it and life's worth it. There's happiness waiting outside of you. Happiness, laughter, friends, love, adventures and so much more.. You don't want to miss those things, do you? So get yourself together and keep fighting because giving up is never an option
“Me remettre n’a pas été facile, mais je recommanderais à tous ceux vivant la même situation de voir un médecin ou thérapeute dès qu’ils se rendent compte de leur problème”, raconte-t-elle.
"It always seems impossible until it's done" even if something seems to be completely unachievable, I encourage you to at least give it a chance and try your best. With a lot of effort you will soon realise that it's not impossible. You've got to believe in yourself, even if others don't. There might be people who let you down but also peolple who support you. Be with those who help you. I've already mentioned it, I was told from the doctors I was probably chronically ill. I was told I just had to live with this illness and try not to lose that much weight again. I remember that others in hospital also said they couldn't imagine I could become healthy as my behaviour was so ruled by anorexia. My mindset was terrible and so was my eating. But that was definetely the past. After 7 years I realised I really had to change things or I'd really have to live with this illness which is no life. I wanted to live. I pulled myself together, fought against my thoughts. Now I can say I'm recovered. Thanks to the support of my friends, mum and boyfriend, but mostly because I really wanted it. My mind changed a lot, to the positive though. What I'm trying to say is that no matter what, you can reach your goal, you can recover and be happy if you really want it. Never listen to others. Go your own way and fight for your life☺️
Il est important de réagir tout de suite quand un proche ou soi-même tombe dans un désordre psychologique aussi grave.
Heureusement pour Chiara, elle rayonne à nouveau. Elle ne veut plus perdre du poids comme avant et arrive à contrôler ses émotions, soutenue par sa famille, ses amis et son petit-ami.
