We all find inspiration from somewhere and for Lottie, that was Taylor Swift.
“Her album Red came out during my time in hospital and it was the only thing that made me happy and that I could get excited about – it reminded me that there were things that could make me happy again.
I remember every meal and every snack that I struggled with, I just thought of seeing Taylor and it helped me get through. Seeing her was amazing. Luckily it wasn’t long after that I finally left hospital. I was aged 17.
Recovery was the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do but it made me a stronger person. It took me years and didn’t stop when I left hospital. Even four years later I have good days and bad days but I am a million times better than I was.”
Lottie hopes she can meet Taylor Swift one day so she can thank her for “being a friend” when she felt the most alone.
From the girl who had no friends and was given 3 days to live, to the girl who is healthy and happy. Thank you Taylor for being my friend when I had none and for getting me through my eating disorder. ❤💜💛 @taylorswift13 @taylornation13 #repTourLondon pic.twitter.com/mDraWw1H5m
