KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Johnson County girl goes on to become a Radio City Rockette.  It sounds like a dream come true.  But it was really a nightmare for Greta Gleissner, a graduate of Shawnee Mission Northwest High School, as she struggled with an eating disorder.

Greta works as a psychotherapist in New York City now, and has written a book titled "Something Spectacular -- The True Story of a Rockette's Battle with Bulimia."  She shared her story with FOX 4 Medical Reporter Meryl Lin McKean.
