GIRL BEATS ANOREXIA AFTER MUM PLANS FUNERAL

A teenager has beaten anorexia after becoming so ill that her mum planned her funeral. Niamh Wynne, 18, from Strabane, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, developed a deadly obsession with calories after learning about them in a GCSE biology lesson. The then-overweight teenager soon became addicted to counting calories and over the next three years shed an astonishing 7st 7lb. At her worst, she weighed just 7st 6lb. A doctor warned her that she would either end up 'in hospital or in a coffin', so her devastated mum began planning her funeral. Now fully recovered, the carer says that almost dying gave her the wakeup call she needed to overcome anorexia.
