I been considering going to a treatment facility. My dietian gave me some information about one in my state. However I am not sure I need to go to one. One of my nurses recommend an outpatient treatment program. I am a bit hesitant about it because I do not want to miss anymore college then I have already. I am going to talk to my psycharist about it,and see what they think.

As much as it is not fun to get behind in school, you have to remember that this is your body and your health that you are talking about. You can always talk to your teachers or get a doctors note of some sort...some teachers will let you do the work outside of class or online while in treatment, but it all depends on the teacher and class. Treatment will be worth it in the long run! Do whatever you need in order to get your body healthy again :) Hang in there.

@Goddes64 As nice as it seems to just plow through and get school over with so that you don't have any interruptions in your education, you have to be mindful of your health. Interruptions in our plans are inconvenient, bottom line. BUT, your life is on hold until you are able to move forward in recovery. I would highly encourage you to be open to the suggestions of your current treatment team, and discuss the options with your psychiatrist when you meet with him/her. You can do it!
