This is the story of a young woman’s descent down a dark and dangerous path of anorexia and anxiety.

Body image can be a focal point for so many students starting out in university. But too often it can become an obsession. And in Meredith Healey’s case, it turned into a hunger game that threatened her life.

It all started out as an innocent attempt at avoiding the Freshman 15. You know, those inevitable 15 pounds you gain during first year of university or college, thanks to bad eating habits and excessive drinking. In Meredith’s case, this notion quickly sparked an infatuation with weight-loss, fueled by fashion magazines. Without even realizing it she became anorexic.
When Meredith stepped foot on campus, she was frail and weak. Her eating disorder, paired with the mounting pressure of maintaining a B+ average to stay in her program, triggered a series of never-ending panic attacks.

Hear her story on this episode of Campus.
