This week on Inside Story Leila McKinnon presents “Unhealthy Obsession”, a journey through a young woman’s battle with anorexia.
Anorexia is one of those diseases that defy logic. How can an emaciated teenager stand in front of a mirror and see some fat, ugly, alien creature? But they do.
Anorexia kills more people than any other psychiatric illness, even depression. So probably the only way to understand this terrible eating disorder is to live with it … or to meet someone as feisty and courageous as 18-year-old Amy Mayhew, who takes McKinnon inside her anorexic world.
