I just watched the Doco about her.
Am I the only one that didn't know that she died because of the combo of bulimia and alcohol???
I didn't even know she had an eating disorder.
Pic because I miss her!

Nah.. I knew, though i always thought the bulimia was speculated. The documentary i saw i think it was her brother who realized it was the eating disorder and spoke about it. It seemed the others were more focused on her lifestyle and alcoholism but yea..
Oh gosh though.. I don't even know if I'm remembering right.. does she even have a brother???.. .. I watched all these awhile ago. It seemed bulimia wasn't talked about initially and then a family member mentioned it and was adamant that it lead to and caused her death..
Sad sad.. ..
Yeah she does have a brother. No one seemed to focus on the ED very much at all. In the doco, one of the studio guys said, 'She ordered a large plate of food, and then she was gone for like 45mins, and when we went in to the bathroom, she had completely redecorated it.' (paraphrased).
But yeah, everyone seemed very much in denial that she had an ED at all... after watching the documentary it seems like it may have been a bigger problem than the drugs (because she came-and-went from the drugs, but the ED was always there).
Anyway, at the end they said that the combination of alcohol with her weakened heart had caused her death. I don't remember the media ever commenting on her bulimia!

with your docos and regos and arvos
Haha you people don't shorten your words over there?
I may not have been paying very much attention to the media around the time that Amy was at the height of her fame. I went through massive anti-media phases, especially when I was really unwell. (Media = toxic). Then again, in NZ we receive about 10% of what you get in the UK...
