ED Team

I know really I have left but I thought, just in case anyone ever checks this still, that I should update for this.

I am now seeing the ED team in my home town. People trained in looking at eating disorders, not just the guy from the mental health services. I had my assesment over the easter holidays, early April time, and my proper treatment/therapy course starts on the 12th May. I get twelve assisted self help sessions probably over 12 or so weeks, working with a therapist to go through a self-help book, and up to three dietician appointments should I so desire – which I do. I am also now on a course of fluoxetine (Prozac) to help stabilise my mood and also hopefully supress any b/ping.

I am glad. I’m not doing great at the moment, slipped again and have been purging several times a week, constant laxative abuse ect ect ect. However I’m trying to be better, trying not to purge, trying to up my intake a little and I really hope this helps. I am positive for the future. Which is nice for a change.

    Yes, I’m so happy that you’re finally seeing some specialists about this and that your eating disorder is being taken seriously.

    I’m also glad that you’re feeling more upbeat about the future ~ I was worried when you disappeared for a while but if it’s because you’re moving on to better things then it’s all to the good 🙂

    I hope the Prozac works out for you ~ I was put on it before anyone bothered to realise that I was bipolar I and the side effects were pretty unpleasant! My uncle takes it for his unipolar depression though and it has helped him a lot, although he’s now pretty much dependent on it to calm his anxiety and stabilise his mood.

    Take care!
