Re: Bloods and tests and general recovery
oh, it does get easier, i promise! i know at the beginning it seems 100% daunting and overwhelming, but i swear it calms down and becomes "normal" and "routine" feeling within a month. It's just crazy hectic at first cuz you're nervous and scared about the changes to come, you don't know what to expect and on top of that, you feel like you have 14 doctor appointments a day! just try to keep your head up and remember that you DO want to get better and feel confident that you WILL get better.
blood work/labs are just a standard thing doctors do, so don't worry about that. they're just making sure that your electrolytes and heart and bones and other "body things" are working correctly (cuz we know that EDs can REALLY screw our bodies up). chances are they won't find anything, so it's not worth stressing over. if they do, then you deal with it when it comes, right? keep your chin up and smile through these tough days to come ... this IS the right thing to do and you'll be all the better for it! good luck!!!
