I totally agree. She acts differently in her newer videos. Her speech is less choppy and she seems to have an easier time putting her thoughts together. Her body has had a crapton of healing to do and she may not ever 100% recover from the damage she has done to her body- including her brain. It's not like we get to choose which body parts the ED destroys or spares. She may have not been neurotypical to begin with. Who knows? It's not like it is a choice of hers in any case.
I really don't understand why ppl are attacking her for food obsession... My ED made me food obsessed as well. And she was very ill and close to death. Starving your body almost to death for years while growing up obviously changes you, and I'd think people on this forum would really get that, idk. That she's a bit slow and seems kinda spaced out often? Yeah, her body was fighting to stay alive, her entire body suffered including her brain, and brain fog, attention problems etc are so common and obvious in ED. If your brain doesn't get enough fuel, your mind just won't be very clear, ofc. The things people attack her for are literally just anorexia symptoms... Is everyone here completely symptomless when nonstop starving and low restricting?
I'm also baffled at all the responses about how she isn't meeting traditional 20s milestones. Well, of course she isn't. Many people with severe EDs do not. They live with relatives or in hospital or they die. The sucess rates for treatment are dismal. Many people end up on disability. It's not like you reach a certain age and your brain decides you need to become independent and stops being disordered so you can get on with your life. Being independent isn't a realistic goal for some people, but being the best version of yourself is a reasonable goal.
Elzani isn't 100% well adjusted, but maybe fixated on food is the best she can do at the moment. It's a vast improvement than the level of functioning she had before.
