Excesses that have had serious consequences on his daily life : “When you weigh more than 100 kg, you suffer. The tendons in my ankles could no longer support it. You have to gain momentum to get up in the morning”. The actress also returned to one of the worst shames of her life: “Once, in front of people, the chair broke under my weight. a terrible humiliation“.
As a reminder, Ariane Séguillon began to suffer from bulimia in 2015, when her brother Benjamin told her of his cancer. A disease that will prevail three years later.
My brother’s death in 2018 was an electric shock. I realized that I was committing suicide, confides the actress.
Supported by those close to her, she makes the decision to take charge of herself. “I came across an extraordinary shrink who categorically forbade me to have surgery before treating my bulimia. […] No diet, no operation works if we do not treat ourselves upstream. I don’t want to give people false hope,” insists the actress.
