Hey hun,
I just got out from being on an ng tube yesterday....not a pleasant experience. It all depends which ed you're suffering with and the state you're in. When I was in a while ago I had my meals supervised, and my bathroom locked whilst a nurse stayed with me for 2 hours after meals to make sure I didn't purge in any way, which after a while was reduced to an hour. It very much worked on a trust basis and how much weight I was gaining. If I lost weight, I lost privillages...phones calls, visits ect...
Good luck hun.
Jess

I have EDNOS, and I live in Indiana. Thank you for sharing that with me, I am guessing I can't use a computer in there? I have online school classes that I take, would they let me take them supervised?

Normally they do not allow you to have internet access, but the only way to know for sure is to talk to the hospital that you will be going to directly.

I am very scared about going. I have never been in hospital for an ed or sh before. I have been in the hospital for being sick, and having ear infections, but not in a psych ward. I just hope I am there for a few days, then go in IOP treatment.

Jess-09 basically said everything I can think of. Almost a year ago to the day, I was admitted to a psych ward for suicide attempt/self harm/bulimia.
They monitor your eating, weight, and a nurse will be in the room with you for two hours after you eat, unless you're doing something else [class, group, alone time with your doctor, etc].
My bathroom wasn't locked, but everyone had a roomate. So I guess they were kinda required to tell? I'm not sure.
