The award-winning voice Molly Hawking told how she courageously overcame fear and eating disorders.

The 19-year-old became famous at ITV’s Talent Show 2019 after winning the crown with her performance I’ll Never Love Again from the movie Born Star.

Based on her Instagram story, Molly shared a touching piece with her fans with a series of photos that portray her mental health story.

I was a happy child, I had the best childhood possible, so why did I get sick? I’ve asked this question so many times, but I still can’t answer it, the singer started.

At the age of 15 I suffered from a deep fear, caused by an event in my life that I never really experienced. I fainted and had seizures up to 20 times a day, I was hospitalized to find out what it was.

Molly, from Cornwall, explained that she felt completely out of control and that her illness had forced her to give up her performance.

She moved on: I had to give up my performance after it became too dangerous, which completely destroyed me. At school things got out of hand during the exams and I had to take the exams in separate rooms surrounded by mats.

But the fear of my condition and the fact that I had lost all control of my own body absorbed all my thoughts, I blamed myself. But I’ve never stopped playing music, it’s the only thing that’s helped me through this ordeal.

Then it all changed for Molly, who admitted she became a human shell after she stopped eating.

She went on to say: To use the control to my advantage (standard), I stopped eating. By the time I passed my last exam, I had cut my husband in half and I was just a man’s shell.

Everyone was scared except me. I didn’t care, I wasn’t really a good person, I alienated everyone, family, friends and myself.

It was a moment when Molly’s life changed, and she hopes that by telling her story, she will also help others to seek help.

She explained: At the time, there was little help with eating disorders in my area, so I kept going back and forth until my heart became so weak that I was followed. I remember lying in bed that night thinking: When I wake up in the morning, I’m going to change.

That’s exactly what I did. Put on a good face and fight the demons. You can do it too! I want to hear your story! Talk, get help and enjoy life! Because it’s too short.

Help is immediately available, so if you need it! Please, take it! Invictus Trust @invictus trust @invictuseducationofficial is a good example! Don’t forget that everyone’s mental health is different! I love you all.
