EastEnders‘Luisa Bradshaw-White has revealed that she fought hard to overcome her eating disorder and bipolar disorder.
The actress who played Tina on the long soap has bravely shared about her battle, which she explains is “the longest road to recovery”.
Luisa has now vowed to dedicate her social media account to helping others.
On Wednesday, she shared a post detailing what she’s been through, hoping to inspire her followers who may be going through the same thing.
“I’ve had the longest journey to recovery from bipolar, really bad bipolar, and extreme eating disorders,” she begins.
“I’ve spent many years in and out of psychiatric units, and it’s been just as long in recovery.”

“Years of self-love, self-care, whatever alternative therapy I could find to try to help myself and get me where I am today.
“And I really love myself. I love my body, I love my mind and I’m really happy. I think that’s actually quite rare.”
She added: “I have learned a lot on my journey and I just want to help others.
“I find social media full of fake … and people pull each other down, and I really want this to be the opposite.

“I had this background and I wanted it to be about love.
“I don’t think I know many of you. Please message me. I want to get to know you guys and inspire people to be the best versions of themselves.
“Because I think you deserve nothing less. I really think there’s nothing better than living a real, happy and leading life.”
In recent months, the star – who played Tina Carter on the soap opera – has transitioned from acting to pursuing the world of dance.
She currently runs Ecstatic dance classes, which she says are the perfect way to experience the excitement of hanging out without a hangover.
Ecstatic dance is a type of dance and aerobics where people let themselves loose and let loose to the rhythm.

The 46-year-old woman and her business partner are setting up a classroom in the small village of Chorleywood in Hertfordshire.
She is recommending classes after she became comfortable in the practice a few years ago.
Luisa explained to HertsLive : “Everyone drinks cocoa [tree that produces cocoa beans] so there’s going to be a little bit of ritual and then people start dancing and I DJ the music really, really cold and then the rhythm kicks in and the cacao really opens your heart.
“Cocoa and music together are such a wonderful combination.”
