Jackie Evancho Claims She Has the Bones of An Elderly Person.
America’s Got Talent star Jackie Evancho has once again spoken out about her eating condition. Jackie Evancho claims that she has the bones of an 80-year-old. The well-known singer recently made her diagnosis public following a car accident in January 2021. Evancho learned about the unusual nature of her wounds while she was in the hospital.
According to her, “They were aberrant breaks, breaks that you see in 80-year-olds.” “I discovered that way that osteoporosis was a result of my food issues. Now that I’m 22 and have osteoporosis,
Evancho allegedly ignored her food issues after receiving an osteoporosis diagnosis. The singer claimed that since she had to eat more to help her bones mend, “it really messed me up with my eating problems.”
After her bones had recovered, her eating disorder returned. She got treatment for her eating condition at an inpatient facility in October 2021.
When Evancho was 15 years old and going through puberty, her fight with anorexia started. She made the decision to “start to slight diet and start working out consistently” because her physique was changing in order to keep her thin. When she didn’t get the desired results, she started cutting back on her meals and increasing her exercise.
Evancho initially sought outpatient care when she was 17 years old, but she struggled all the way into adulthood. The coronavirus epidemic, according to the singer, exacerbated her eating condition since “there weren’t diversions.”
Jackie Evancho Continues to Fight Anorexia
Evancho is still pursuing a healthy lifestyle at the present. She reportedly sees a therapist and a dietitian. Along the way, she also receives eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), a form of psychotherapy that aids in the processing of trauma and the management of her eating condition.
Evancho has said that she is now struggling, but she is persevering. Although she has not yet adopted healthy food and lifestyle habits, she does not yet consider herself to be in good health.
“Since I was a young child, I have invested a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into my work. Now, I’m watching that sort of go away because of this devil in my head. You can’t take this one thing away from me, therefore I’m going to fight this right away, she added.
Evancho recently made a comeback with the release of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now.” The 22-year-old has announced a concert for July 24 since releasing this comeback song.
September sees the release of Carousel of Time, her upcoming album. This album features several Joni Mitchell tributes. On July 13, her upcoming song “A Case of You” from Carousel of Time will be released; preorders are presently being taken.
She has been writing unique songs ever since she started playing music again. Nashville vacation she recently took for songwriting “wasn’t therapeutic, but it was crafting something beautiful out of something horrible,” she said. The singer admitted that there are still everyday problems, but that things are improving.
She added, “There are times when I feel hopeless and helpless, but I’m weary of living this way.
Fans of America’s Got Talent may recall Evancho as the fifth season’s runner-up, where she rose to national prominence as a 10-year-old opera singer. She has participated in The Masked Singer and returned for AGT: The Champions since her appearance on AGT.
