Q: did you only have anorexia for two months before going to rhodes? So you can go if you're newly diagnoses? did you self fund or NHS fund? Thank you xxxxxx

Yes I was only diagnosed for two months (actually more like a month and a half). You can go inpatient if you are a new diagnosis. It’s an illness; If I was diagnosed with cancer after a couple of months starting treatment right away would really help my chances of recovery. If you know you’re sick the best thing you can do is get help. You deserve it. For some people early treatment might be therapy or meeting a dietician but I was in so much denial that the best thing for me was hospital. My treatment was paid for by insurance. Someone once said to me that if you aren’t funded by the nhs you aren’t actually sick enough but that’s bullshit. It’s a fucking hard decision for parents to make. I was referred into hospital by a psychiatrist and my parents accepted it. Hope I helped with any queries! Xxx
