          Melissa says Maddie has been in and out of the hospital every other month for dehydration, can’t get up a flight of steps without being out of breath, passes out in the shower, sleeps all day, and even quit school.

          Maddie, who admits she has anxiety and depression as well as an “unhealthy” relationship with food, adamantly denies having an eating disorder.
