I haven't been on here in...well...forever!! I was in inpatient treatment for 2 1/2 months at Melrose Institute for my eating disorder and now I am back home and fighting as hard as I can for my RECOVERY!

When I got to Melrose, my a1c was 13.9, and I was in DKA. I had to be hospitalized at a different hospital for a few days before I could be admitted to Melrose. My heart was messed up. I was dehydrated. \

I'm in my goal weight range now and my a1c is 7.7. I have my hard days, but I am kicking my eating disorder's ass!!!
