A Japanese lady in her 20s who identified herself as Wild Cabbage on Twitter, took to the platform to recount the abuse she suffered in the hand of her grandfather who she lived with 10 years ago. In the harrowing reality of domestication abuse, Wild Cabbage dropped to just 2 stone 6 pounds after being starved by her grandfather, who banned her from eating.
According to her, when caught by her grandfather secretly eating, he would “kick her in the belly”. The lady who shared new photos of herself 10 years after while campaigning for domestic violence victims to “ask for help before it’s too late”, said she medics who came to her aid after she got help, told her she was just 10 minutes from death.
Though she hasn’t revealed what happened to her grandfather, some people on social media have claimed the images have been photoshopped but the woman insists they are real.
She even posted further photos, which she says were taken when she was receiving treatment in hospital 10 years ago.
Here are photos she shared below;
