Feel better soon! Glad you’re admitted and being taken care of.
It does get better once this gets worked out- hang in there

Good thing you listened to your body because it was trying to tell you that something was wrong.

Sometimes people will dismiss the complaints of others -- nothing is worse than showing up at the ER and being treated like an attention-seeking, drug-seeking hypochondriac. You might have been seen sooner if you told them you were close to throwing up in their waiting area. Did you wait 2 hours before you were triaged or after?

I'm sorry that you had to go through this. I'm glad that your Mom is around to help you. Nothing beats mother love and support.

Keep us posted. People here really do care.

Yess ! Omg you are spot on. I’m definitely glad i chose to go to emergency and stay there because there’s no telling what would’ve happened if I’d gone home like i wanted to. I only waited roughly 30- 45 mins to be seen in triage then i had to wait to be brought back Bc their ED was pretty full. I was honestly pretty afraid of what they would say considering i hadn’t thrown up in their presence until I’d been brought back to a room. I was happy to see that they were able to see what was going on with me via the blood tests and Urine test that were done . Even though i could barely produce any urine since i was so dehydrated. I always get paranoid when coming to ED Bc I’ve seen first hand working in a hospital how things can be brushed off , or because you aren’t physically ill in their faces that there isn’t anything wrong . You know ?
As for my mom.. I am super thankful for her support. Unfortunately she has to work so i haven’t been able to see her too much since I’ve been admitted but she still checks on m as if she were still here.

Being a mother of four (my three oldest are all doctors. My daughter is a PharmD and my sons are medical doctors), I can tell you that your children will always be your babies. My youngest son, the "smart one", isn't interested in medicine; he's studying computer engineering.

That’s great that you have the insider info. on hospitals. I work for a hospital system but in an office setting.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss

      I am struggling right now.  I am working out 4.5 hours a week and it hasn't felt good for the last 2 weeks.  Feels more like a chore and I don't know why.  I am still going but it has been a fight. Corresponding to this I have also been wanting to eat - eat everything we aren't supposed to eat. I have held back for the most part but I have splurged - full sugar vanilla pudding cup, I had a chocolate chip cookie and tortillas. I even stopped tracking my food. I am back on track, but I feel really down right now. I am already seeing someone, and it helps, but wow I am not feeling like myself. I am hoping this is a passing phase. I don't want these feelings to continue. Sigh...
