Josi Maria regularly shared images of her battle with the eating disorder during her last difficult years on social media and tried to warn people of the dangers .
In June, she posted a photo at the gym looking extremely skinny. In a heartbreaking message she assured: «No, I am not taking this photo because I am proud of my appearance. And no, I’m not posting it either because I want to motivate others to look like me. In fact, yes, the reason I’m posting this photo is because I’m traveling and I want you to join me. I want to share my thoughts and show that I am actively fighting anorexia. I also want to say that we should not hide no matter what psychological illnesses we have. ”
After her death, Josi María’s mother published on social networks: “You were an angel on earth. For your fight against this serious disease, we love you, we admire you to the end, and yet we had to helplessly watch how you lost this battle. I miss you a lot, your mom »
