“Over the years I have learned that each of our weaknesses in the end turns out to be a strength and it was the same for mine too food disorders. When I went from a child’s body to a woman’s body, I didn’t understand my curves, I didn’t understand my metabolism, I didn’t know what was happening to me and I started not eating.

I don’t know exactly why this happened to me, I’ve always liked it, but unfortunately the mind is devious, so I have lost a lot of weight and I think I have touched theanorexia. Fortunately, I have always had parents who have helped me at all times.

After this period, however, I lived through the years of bulimia, again I did not accept the fact that I was returning to eat, in short, my adolescence was an ordeal from this point of view, but as I grew up I worked on myself, I learned to know myself and love every part of me. I learned to understand and fill my gaps, to cook healthily and take care of myself from every point of view. I have learned to see food as a moment of joy and serenity and not as a number and I must admit that do therapy with a psychologist it was very important in my case and for this reason I recommend it to everyone.

In the years of pandemic unfortunately I realized that I was not the only one to have suffered from eating disorders in adolescence, but that many women also suffered from it and still suffer from it at any age, so I asked myself: “Jade, but what can you do to help these people?” . The answer was MyCherry appbecause an application can really tiptoe into people’s daily lives and concretely help to love each other, so a June 2021 after a long time of work, she was finally born MyCherry appthe first application in Italy created by women for women to make us living healthy eating as a gesture of love.
