It took me 6 weeks and time out with my boyfriend to realize that it wasn’t going to be that easy. I struggled a lot and I know that I will keep on struggling but my stay at Montrose has taught me that that is OK. I don’t have to be perfect there is no such thing as a perfect recovery. It is a difficult journey and a long one but I hope that my tools which I have learnt here will help me cope with my feelings and emotions and not let my ED take over.
I now see that I was and still am sick but I have been able to recover physically and I am working on the mental part of it. I have learnt so much about myself and about my feelings. This has been a once in a life time experience and I am forever grateful for the chance to have come here and for all the things that I have learnt.
I look forward to the future to a happy and healthy one.
