It wasn't too long ago that Katie Couric decided it was time to share her struggle with bulimia in an effort to help others.
The reveal shocked so many because it came out of nowhere!
She really first opened up about her problem when Demi Lovato was talking about her own battle with eating disorders as a guest on Katie's show last year.
"I [was] asking people to reveal their innermost feelings about [this issue], and I actually know about it. I have had this issue; my sister Emily, who passed away, had this issue. So I thought, 'This is the time…' I know this mind game that goes on where if you don't adhere to this strict calorie restriction, it makes you feel really bad about yourself, and this vicious cycle kicks in."
We're so glad you let it all out!
She must feel so much better now that it's no longer secret.
If it's not a secret, she can talk openly about it with others who may be secretly struggling, just looking for someone to talk to.
If you're battling any sort of problem, eating disorder or otherwise, talk to someone, anyone.
Even if you don't want to talk to anyone, reading how others had the same problem as you and overcame it can give you the tools and strength to overcome it yourself!!
