MALE ANOREXIA & BULIMIA: AN UPDATE FROM JOHNNY ON ANOREXIA...

In an earlier blog post, I introduced you to Johnny Giovanni Righini who has posted videos on YouTube which chronicle his life with anorexia, bulimia, and orthorexia nervosa.

For several weeks, Johnny was MIA. He posted a short video saying that he was very ill. I feared the worst.

Thankfully, Johnny survived his most recent illness and has uploaded two videos in the past few days. His latest video details his continuing struggle with anorexia and bulimia.

If you are suffering with an eating disorder, please take a moment to listen to Johnny's most recent message:

"Morning thoughts on issues: eating disorders/anorexia nervosa - that I've been dealing with lately."

Heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking! And, the saddest thing of all is that Heidi Diaz enjoys this. I firmly believe she enjoys hurting people. She's too narcissistic to hurt herself, so Kimmer turns her self-loathing outward on others. If they let her hurt them, they're just weak and deserve it. She is a sick, sick person and must be brought to justice. Thank you Medusa for your tireless effort to see that Heidi pays for her crimes.

Agreed, Mayberryfan! Except for the "sick" part. She's not sick -- she's evil.

Medusa -- Johnny and the others with eating disorders -- do they realize how many people "out here" are reading about them and hurting for them, wishing there were something we could do to help?

You were always so kind to share my story. I left You Tube and public activism to work on my recovery. I am a lot more stable now and just returned to public activism and You Tube. I have not forgotten this site, thank you again.

Johnny, I've thought of you often over the past few years and am so happy to hear from you!

I just finished watching your recent videos on YouTube and am thrilled you are doing so well in your recovery.

You will always hold a special place in my heart and I'm so proud of you.

Please give your sweet dog a big kiss on the lips for me :) There's nothing like the love of a dog (and a wonderful mother) to help you along your recovery journey. Stay strong, hon.

Love and hugs,
Barb (Medusa) xo
