losing everything - January 17th 2009, 04:06 PM

Ok so, my counsilor is going to look into getting me funds to go to ED treatment. I've been trying to fix me for a long time now on my own, and it's just not working. I try so hard to stop... to get better. I have breakdowns almost every night.

I had a really long talk with my boyfriend last night. He is trying really hard to support me, but I know sometimes it's a really difficult thing to do.
He said that if my counsilor couldn't find a way to get the money that he was going to ask his church for funding for me.

He's getting tired and I can tell.
He said that sometimes he has a hard time believeing that I'm trying, and that he feels like I'm giving him hopes and dreams for the future... that will never happen. He said he's afraid we wont last very much longer if I don't get better.

I cried my eyes out... and he did too.

My last hope is treatment or I'm going to lose everything soon.
Pray for me that I get the funding.
For deeper reasons than just an eating disorder, if I don't go I'm going to die.

Like a diet of the mind, I just choose not to indulge certain appetites; like my appetite for patterns; perhaps my appetite to imagine and to dream. - A Beautiful Mind

I met Steven October 3rd, 2008. We've been practically inseperable ever since. ♥

Your fears as well as your boyfriend's are totally understandable. If you can't find proper funding, you may be able to work out a payment plan with the treatment center (or with whomever you are trying to obtain treatment from). If you have health insurance, check to see what their policy is.

I hope that you get the help that you need and deserve.

If you need someone to talk to, my PM box is always open.

Stephanie, If you can't get into Remuda, i'll look up some other centers around Indiana, or close by. I really want you to get better, and if you ever need to talk, you can either PM me, IM me, or Call me.

You are beautiful just the way you are.
Looking like a fallen star.
Don't listen to what people say.
They don't know the real you, anyways.
