Greg DeMarco and Patrick O'Dowd interviewed former WWE developmental Diva Skyler Moon (a/k/a Buggy Nova). In it, she discusses going to rehab for her eating disorder.
“I mentioned before I have an eating disorder. I went to treatment because I was killing myself. ... Nothing else matters. ... My disease is dealing with food, or no food, or too much exercise. ... I was miserable and I was dying… It was either treatment or dead. ... I made the decision [to go]. I knew I couldn’t give my best performance. ... I couldn’t do this by myself. I needed help. I needed to put my life on hold, I needed to swallow my pride, throw my hands up in the air and say ‘Hey, I need help with this, I don’t know what else to do.’ I had to check my ego at the door and allow other people to help me with my life. ... Rehab is awesome, and I wish I could give everyone who needed that opportunity, or wanted that opportunity, I wish I could give that to them. ... I don’t know where I’d be without it.”
“When WWE offered me the contract one of my first thoughts was that I could bring more awareness to it. ... Have more opportunities to do more fundraising/awareness work. Eating disorders today is so taboo, no one wants to talk about it. Especially with guys. ... And there’s options. It doesn’t have to own you. ... My eating disorder owned me, it controlled my life, it told me what to do. In a short period of time, too. ... I just want people to talk about it, don’t be ashamed about it. It’s more common than you think. There is help out there. If I can help someone, then it’s all worth it.”
