What a goat rodeo…

Okay, some of you may have noticed my blog went dark on Friday.

I went inpatient for my eating disorder.

Ostensibly.

Unfortunately, because of the way the system works, (or doesn’t), I got placed on a psych ward and didn’t see a dietician until today. I also didn’t see a case manager until today.

I am not kidding.

I started eating on the unit on Saturday night when I decided I didn’t want to be in the hospital anymore.

In Michigan, since I signed myself in, I could sign myself out with what’s called a “three day notice of intent to leave the hospital.”

I did that yesterday.

The doctor asked me to meet with the dietician so I did today, but honestly I was so over that unit by the time they finally met with me I couldn’t have cared less. I just wanted out.

In Michigan there’s also a list of patient rights and one of them is that they cannot hold you if it is not necessary. I was eating and I wasn’t there for psychiatric reasons so he had no basis to hold me. I made it clear that I knew that so he had to let me go today.

I don’t think he was super thrilled about it, but whatever.

Essentially, I got no help and I had to eat a bunch of really gross stuff to get out of there.

Whatever. It’s over.

I will be making sure I spread the word that the place is a disaster when it comes to treating eating disorders. I will become an advocate for that.

Other than that, I’m just super happy I’m out.

I am going to try to be a little better about what I eat and just walk on the treadmill a little more.

Anyway, that’s where I’ve been. I’m so glad it’s over.

I think I’m going to clean something.
