I was an inpatient in a general ward and also in a mental health unit..
It was frightening when I was threatened with becoming an inpatient, I didn't know what to expect or anything.
I am not trying to scare you here but it was probley the worst experience of my life and I've been through some hard times. The whole reason behind anorexia is control, they take that away from you. You are told what you can and can not do just like a child, wheelchair everywhere, watched in the shower, watching eating meals, made to rest all the time and if you do not apply to this then you have a NG tube put down your nose into your stomach where they feed you with high calorie milky liquid which is filled with vitamins and all sorts.
I would not wish this on anyone, I had to learn the hard way and really do not want you to do the same. It is much easier to do this on your own accord and you will be so proud of your self for achieving this and so will I because it is hard and gets harder but when your outta anorexia's grips lots of things open up to you. You have the whole life ahead of you and could be anything you ever dreamt of.
My father was the one who set my anorexia off he called my a fat little freak this really affected me badly, I blamed my self for falling out with him so gave him a second chance he then called me stupid so now I know that it is not my fault and it is because he is a nasty person.
If you ever need to talk to release the anxiety or just for someone to talk to im always here
