First of all, I want to thank you for taking the time to read my request as I feel extremely guilty asking for help. There are others much worse out there, so please help them if you are able. That being said here is a little of my story-if you want more I can directly message with you. Anyhow, here it goes
My name is brooke and I am a 31 year old and I am looking for help during this difficult time. I suffer from anorexia nervous and included are major depression, OCD, anxiety-all that do not allow me to work full or part time as my passion-a registered nurse. I have had this eating disorder for half of my life. I became a registered nurse a little over 7 years ago and since then my health has declined drastically. I was in treatment in 2017 for my eating disorder but since have been in the midst of a terrible relapse. Since I can no longer work many hours I do not have insurance and my long term disability will stop this June. I have exhausted any attempt with state resources-getting denied even though I’m only working as many hours a week as I possibly can force myself as I feel safe to do. Any money I make I put towards gas, groceries, the necessities to get by. This is why I am asking for help, enough to get by and back on my feet enough to work more get my insurance back, get help again, and be the nurse and person I once was. I feel that my patients, friends, family are suffering because of me my health and that is not fair. Mental disorders are some of the hardest ailments to treat and anorexia is one of the most deadly-a very isolating silent mental illness that is the most common to result in death.
Please help in any way you feel inclined. Even if you just want to reach out to learn more about anorexia in general or my story is be happy to chat.
Thank you for your consideration during this time of need
