Most places I visit I try and find a food guide. In #cagliari
I was lucky to meet
Gaby. Today Gaby is a 43 year old with a PhD in food science and a talented cook with a delicate touch. At 20 Gaby was an #anorexic
weighing just 36 kg. After a history of self harm Gaby tried to kill herself by jumping off a 3 story building but luckily she survived and was committed. A series of psychiatric interventions including medication & #electroshocktherapy
failed to help her and just served to drive Gaby deeper into depression, self harm and finally another suicide attempt where she broke both legs. When Gaby was told that she might never walk again she finally took control of her life. Gaby explained all of this during a 3hr cooking session where she taught me how to prepare #fregola
. Gaby now assists young women suffering from eating disorders.
