‘I have real problems with my hormones, as well as some body injuries that will never heal. I do not digest food well, nor do I tolerate certain foods at all.’   

Bridget added that she had to ‘make peace’ with the fact that she brought these health problems upon herself. 

‘There was no point tearing myself (or others) down for it – all I could do was adapt and try to live as best I can,’ she said.
