Lisa Rinnan tytär paljastaa: ”Anoreksia oli tappaa”

Viihdeuutiset · Terhi Piiroinen

Näyttelijä Lisa Rinnan 19-vuotias tytär Amelia Gray Hamlin on kertonut sairastuneensa anoreksiaan kolme vuotta sitten. Lääkäri antoi hänelle vain muutaman kuukauden elinaikaa. Nuori nainen kertoi sairaudestaan ensimmäisen kerran julkisuuteen huhtikuussa 2018.

Amelia Gray Hamlin kertoo, että hänen lähipiirinsä vei nuoren yllättäen sairaalaan. Amelia oli herännyt ystävänsä talosta, kun pihalla oli hänen vanhempansa ja sisaruksensa. He ottivat tytön mukaansa ja veivät hänet sairaalaan lääkärin vastaanotolle.

– Tällä menolla painat neljän kuukauden kuluttua 20 kiloa ja olet kuollut, lääkäri sanoi suoraan.

Amelia Gray Hamlin kertoo Skinny Confidential -podcastissa, että hän päätti lopettaa oman vartalonsa sabotoimisen ja keskittyä terveellisempään elämään. Hän sai apua syömishäiriöönsä, ja aloitti hän samalla harjoitella itsensä rakastamista. Hän sanoo, että ihmisen ei ole pakko olla laiha elääkseen ja kuollakseen onnellisena. Tärkeintä on olla onnellinen sellaisena kuin on. Amelia uskoo, että julkinen toipuminen on auttanut pysymään oikealla tiellä.

This is a story of my day

WARNING: GRAPHIC!!!!! May trigger some Three years ago around this time I went to seek help. It has become so surreal over these past few years during my journey. Sharing my story with all of you, seeking the support, and supporting others. Now that it is a new year, I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am for each and every one of you. When I first opened up about my disorder, I did not expect anyone to truly care or respond. The response I got was unimaginable. Some of you congratulate me for healing and seek for help from me. Though, truly, you guys are the reason that I survived. A lot of the time I think social media is extremely toxic, and makes my head go crazy. But- if I truly think about it, without this crazy platform, I may have never healed. The support I had was so large that I couldn’t ever think of letting any of you guys down. I felt like it was my job as a role model to heal. I don’t want to write a long crazy thing. I don’t love to talk about my eating disorder much anymore, as I do not want it to define me. But I do strongly believe that it happened to me for a reason. Of course, that sounds absurd. But I wouldn’t be half of the person that I am today if it hadn’t happened to me. I strongly believe that I am me because of it. And I am really grateful to have come out the other end, stronger and more resilient than imaginable. I love you guys so much. Words can’t really explain it. My goal in this life is to create a space for everyone to heal. I will get there. But, for now, I believe that we should continue to use this platform that our generation is so lucky to have – to help. I love seeing photos of people living their best lives, but let’s be real. We’re all human. We all have battles. We all stay up at night thinking about what we’re going through. But that is what makes us individuals. Without these hard times we would all be the same. Embrace your hardships, embrace your struggles. The goal is to come out of the other end inspired, bettered, resilient, and knowledgeable. Love you.
