"In college I would go days without eating, because it does consume you.I would do both, but mostly purging because I would be out with friends. It's not pretty," she said.

Seeing her condition, her mother persuaded her to seek professional help.

Leaving an important message for the many battling this condition, "It's time to try to help people with something I overcame. Someone can be 10 years free of it. Your life can go back to normal. I've been through a lot of therapy over the years. You can come through the other side."
