I have at least 10 stories I’d like to share with people who have disordered eating. This one is about my experience with inpatient treatment. My personal pattern was bingeing, not eating, bingeing, not eating. But in treatment, I was lumped together with bulimics and anorexics, and there was no effort to individualize our treatment plans. Maybe you can see where this is going.
I joined the Suppers meeting series after hearing about it from a friend. I was interested because it sounded like a novel approach to support for healthy living, something I strive for. A couple of weeks into the program, I had my annual blood work done and found out that my triglycerides were dangerously high. My doctor asked me to go on a particular diet for three months, and then get my blood work redone.
