          23-Year-Old Claims Mom Is ‘One Of My Main Triggers’ For Severe Eating Disorder


          April 23, 2018

          Jordan admits that she has an eating disorder and is literally starving herself to death. She says she loves to see the bones sticking out of her body and she fears gaining weight more than dying.

          The 23-year-old claims one of the reasons she hasn’t overcome her eating disorder – which she has been warned may kill her – is because of her mother.

          “My mom is one of my main triggers, and I don’t think she understands that,” Jordan says of her mother, Angela, who has guardianship over her. “One night we were arguing, and the last thing she said was, ‘You’re dead to me.’ I don’t know how that’s something a mom could say to her daughter; it’s hurtful. I absolutely hate the control they have over it, and that’s one of the reasons my anorexia’s stuck around.”

          Angela, however, claims she had no choice if she wanted to keep her daughter alive.

          “She is not healthy enough to control herself and take care of herself,” Angela claims. “It’s all a big mess.”
