A Japanese lady in her 20s who does by the name Wild Cabbage on Twitter has shared shocking photos which show the harrowing reality of domestic abuse.
The images show how her weight dropped to just 2 stone 6 pounds after being starved by her grandfather.
Wild Cabbage took the shocking images in front of a mirror when she was living with her grandfather 10 years ago.
She says she was banned from eating and that her grandfather would “kick her in the belly” if he caught her secretly having food and she would then have to vomit out the food.
According to her, she was finally able to get some help – that she was just 10 minutes from death. She says she is now sharing them to urge domestic violence victims to “ask for help before it’s too late”.
"People who are abused, this is a little different, but if you have eating disorders, ask for help before it's too late."
She has shared more recent photos that show she is now of healthy weight and happy once again. She revealed her reasons for sharing the pictures. She cheerfully announced that she is now "Fat as a pig."
It is not known whether her grandfather faced any legal action or if he is in fact still alive. Wild Cabbage was rescued by local police officers. We are hoping that her grandfather is rotting in a Japanese jail somewhere.
Take a look at the harrowing pictures of Wild Cabbage below.
