Those of you who know me well, may know that I have struggled with a reccurance of an eating disorder following several traumatic events: ectopic pregnancy and a secondary traumatic exposure over a year and a half ago. For those of you who don't. Here is my story in brief.
I suffered an eating disorder as a young teenager. It took me through two services private and nhs. By the time.I was 21 I was doing incredibly well. I got my degree, training as a psychologist and met my fiance. Unfortunately ED found its way in and under several stressors, I crumbled.
I have for the last year and a half paid for private therapy two weekly, with the knowledge that I would have had to wait 9months for treatment. I have fire fought my illness in part but unfortunately my psychologist didn't understand my illness very well and made things worse. I am now running out of finance to pay (or what I need and have lost almost everything to this illness- job, confidence etc.
As I fight this illness with my fiance in hand, we searched in despair for help. I was told by the nhs that I have to wait 28 weeks for help - Because I am not acute enough (thin enough). That as a psychologist who may have contact /conflict of interest having worked in the nhs, they may not be able to help! I have been backtomI GP and told I have to wait.
Ast a professional I am frustrated and as someone struggling with ed I am scared. Scared I wont get better.
The priory is a private institution which got me well before.
Thanks to your donations we have been seen by a specialist who knows just what is needed to help. I am seeing them weekly. However. I run out ofmney next week. so I ask in shame, for the help of humanity. To support me with the cost of getting my life back from this illness, at £240 per week im in despair. Its likely to be 20 sessions plusto getme on track. I refuse to playthe getsicker togtI help sooner game and ask for help. To support me with the cost of getting my life back from this illness, through consultations from specialist psychologists; who will help me work through the pain of my grief and trauma
