Anorexic cover girl model, 19, dies in her sleep | Mail Online
Yesterday, her father Clive, 47, said: ’She lost her self-esteem.
’She would say she was fat but she was so beautiful – she didn’t realise how beautiful she was. She had up days and down days. It was like Jekyll and Hyde.
’I tried to warn her that her organs would fail but she just said: “Don’t be silly”. If you mentioned food it would start an argument.’
Her parents, who also have a 22-year-old daughter, Shari, said her death was all the more tragic because Bethaney had finally started confronting her condition late last year.
She had been given an eating plan by West Suffolk Eating Disorder Service to help her.
Her father, a roof tiler, added: ’She was getting better. She was having counselling and making good progress but the paramedics said her blood sugar level was very low.’
