I had a meeting with my therapist and my parents yesterday. yeah, that's always nerve wracking! We all came to the agreement that I am going to do the IOP program (plus extra therapy sessions). I have to say that I am relieved that I am not going back into inpatient - but I am really nervous because there are a lot of conditions and requirements I have to follow & achieve to stay out of inpatient. But I am determined to work my "you know what" off and really really try harder than I ever have to recover and move on with my life!
I understand and realize that I really have an enormous battle in front of me, because where I am at mentally and physically - inpatient really is the ideal place for me to be... So it's going to be rough - it's going to seem impossible - but I have an amazing therapist and treatment team, plus amazing family & friends! So, I know that I can do this! I will do this!!
