hi i'm rachel! currently recovering

hey !! Im rachel. Ive had anorexia for two years now. Ive been on both sides of the scale. Extremely underweight and almost obese. (Not when i had anorexia, just when i started) i am now a healthy weight. I have been to 5 inpatient hospitals and been in php for 1 year straight. im going back to one on Wednesday and im nervous because my behaviors have came back. I havent lost weight but i have been restricting a lot more. :( but i dont think i need to be there cause i am already a healthy weight.

I think it;s healthy to go back, it might just be a little reminder and the little boost you need to get past this bump in the road
