I had to take two years off to work on recovery and when I went for interviews nobody really mentioned it. I think if you wait until you get fired, your boss might not give you a good recommendation and it will make it harder to get a job.
I lost my therapist in May and it was really tough because I had seen him for more than one year. Could you ask her to give you suggestions for a new therapist? On my last session, my therapist gave me the names of therapists.
When I was just coming off the laxatives, I did not trust myself to be without therapy. I was so emotional and going back to bulimia and anorexia and making everything worse. It just helped me to know that I had two weeks to work on the goals I set in therapy.
I didn't meet my goals all the time but it helped knowing that someone with experience in helping people recover was making some of the decisions -I don't know if that makes sense?
I haven't abused laxatives in 10 months. I abused them for more than 6 years, but i'm also in recovery for anorexia and bulimia. My health problems are mostly life long: gastritis and acid reflux. I am terrified of getting a bone scan so I don't about that yet.
I hope you keep updating and I hope you keep fighting.
Wow I'm so proud of you
I took 19 again last night, it worked but I guess I'm kind of lying to myself aswell... Because I've been given medication from my gastro that makes you go to the bathroom. It apparently treats my inflamed small intestine.
I feel like im just swapping another pill for another.
Small steps tho right? It was only 3 days ago I cut down...
My shrink won't reply to my texts... I stuffed her around a bit before... I was drinking everyday because I was so anxious about even being with my bf or being in any social situation.. That's why I started seeing her.
That's a diff story though.
I hope u haven't caused any serious life long damage.
Only yesterday i stopped Bleeding massive amounts whenever I had a BM.
My nose bleeds a lot too.
I'm finding it quite impossible to find a good gastro or even GP.
It's like everyone in Australia doesn't care about anything but money!
Im just going to try keep doing what I'm doing... Trying so hard not to binge... As my antidepressants make me incontrolabley hungry.
Yet another maximum dosage pill I want to go off...
Thankyou for your support. You are keeping me going.
