Recovery is tough. PTSD, Borderline PD, and an eating disorder. Even though I finished intensive outpatient almost 3 years ago I continue to struggle. No matter how bad the struggle gets I keep my feet planted on the path to recovery.

This is my record of the good days and the bad, the highs and the lows.

Anonymous asked: Sucks that the treatment program didn't work out. Can you share when the program ran (times, frequency)? I looked it up online and was wondering if that would work for me.

hey! I can share what I remember from the orientation. So, once you’re referred you go on the list and then to a 3 hour orientation which is mostly filling out treatment questionnaires. Should that go well (it did not for me lol) you move on to the group. It’s one group, once a week for a minimum of 6 months. If at the 6 month point (when the group wraps up) you still need additional support there are some other groups (I think one was relapse prevention focused and one was body image). I want to say the weekly group was 2 hours. The one that’s happening right now was on Thursday from 4 (or 4:30) until 6pm. The program itself sounded really useful and great. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions and I can try to answer them. Best of luck to you :)

Someone I know posted something super triggering on Facebook tonight and it’s threatening my self harm free steak. I’m colouring through feeling triggered and waiting for a friend to come over for Hannibal night. Thoughts are just thoughts. I do not need to act on them.

That’s an interesting way of phrasing things seeing as it was actually them who declined me treatment

In a society that idealizes the body, people who cannot come close enough to the ideals, and those whose bodies are out of control, become devalued people because of their devalued bodies.

Every minute of final paper writing. Especially when analyzing and social working your own family. :(

The most welcome of paper writing distractions. I like when she sits like this and I can make her little paws look like she’s playing the piano. I’m tired.

wonderdog6 asked: Hey Kristan... how is the ankle... was the anon right, are you needing crutches this morning??

Hi new friend. It’s alright. Feeling pretty good right now. It was a mess this morning and took quite a bit of time to get enough weight on it to move around. No crutches though! Thanks for asking!

And cue the paper writing meltdown.

It’s too early for this. I’ll never get anything else done now.
