Gracie has been battling eating disorders since she was nine years old. However, in late 2017, it rapidly became much more severe. She began exercising four to five times a day and purged everything she ate. By November, she was eating only 200 to 400 calories a day and was 30 pounds underweight. She took as many as seven laxatives at a time. Depression had set in. In the next couple of months, she experienced further weight loss. She was dangerously thin and had become so weak that she would often just collapse on the floor. In the mornings, she often woke up with blurry vision and did not even have the energy to walk or stand and had to crawl. She was extremely dehydrated and whenever she gagged, nothing would come up as she had no food in her. In order to hide her eating disorder from her friends, she would eat with them, only to purge everything later. Eventually, in January, she was admitted to a clinic for eating disorders and she spent the following two months there. Since then, she has been recovering. In the recent posts on her social media accounts, she appears happy and healthy. She even offers helpful advice to people who may be going through the same ordeal.
This was not the first time that she had to fight a severe medical issue. In 2016, she was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. She subsequently underwent treatment and is on her way to make a complete or near complete recovery.
