The singer Doreen Steinert (36) revealed in a conversation with her roommates on "Promi Big Brother" in Sat.1 in the November 21 show that she suffered from anorexia in her past. She stopped eating properly, "developed a fear of sugar" and became anorexic. A little later, bulimia was added.
That also had an effect on their social contacts at the time. She withdrew more and more, couldn't go to a restaurant with friends, because Steinert said food was "connected with panic," she told Tanja Tischewitsch (33), Micaela Schäfer (39) and Katy Karrenbauer (59). The singer had the feeling that she had "scared everyone".
The singer pointed out that anyone who is in distress should get help: "It's okay if you're weak sometimes and if you don't know what to do."
"Anorexia is a serious and usually very protracted illness that absolutely must be treated," writes the Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA) on the website "bzga-essstoerungen.de". The BZgA lists, among other things, contact points for those affected and their relatives.
