Freaking out...
So my shrink brought up inpatient yesterday...and I've been a wreck ever since...She wants me on medication but she said she can't currently do that...She wants to send me two hours away for my ED and to detox from alcohol...I'm spazzing out, and I don't know what I should expect should I choose to go...I already know that I'll gain weight and be extremely sick...probably not in that order...God, I don't know what to do...everyone keeps telling me to go, and I'm freaking out, because I've never been to IP before...Anyone know what I should be expecting?....:/

I have never been ip but I would encourage you to take up this opportunity.

While I have never been inpatient for an eating disorder, I have been inpatient. I can remember the first time I went inpatient I like you was terrified but it helped me get to a place where I was mentally enough stable to be able to continue the work in the community. Perhaps you could talk to your psych about you could expect from your stay. All the best with everything. Take care

She mentioned Denver, so I think it'll be eating disorder specific...I'm just really really scared, and I know it's not something to be touched on lightly, and I've noticed that all of my concerns are stemming from my illness, but I guess maybe I'm just dumbfounded...I really don't want this...but I'm starting to question if I need it. I'd love to be more stable, and normal, but I'm terrified of gaining weight...and the prospect of sobriety is terrifying as well...I'm stuck in the middle. Arghhhh...This is so freaking hard....v.v

I'm not sure which one she has in mind yet...I guess it can't hurt to look into it...figure out insurance and stuff...
