(UPDATED on September 27, 2021)

It has been difficult to share my story and ask for the help I desperately need.

I have been struggling greatly with an eating disorder relapse that was exacerbated by the pandemic and the stalking I have experienced for over 11 years .

On March 23, 2020, I was admitted into a virtual partial hospital program (PHP) for eating disorders. 

On May 5, 2020, I transferred to another virtual PHP.

On June 30, 2020, I was discharged from virtual PHP because I couldn’t afford to continue treatment and had to return to work.

On January 31, 2021, another stalking incident triggered another serious relapse.

On March 15, 2021, I was re-admitted to the virtual PHP for eating disorders. 

On May 14, 2021, I was unexpectedly discharged from PHP because virtual program had to suddenly close.

On May 17, 2021, I was admitted to virtual intensive outpatient program (IOP) for mental health while continuing to attend virtual peer support groups for my eating disorder.

On July 20, 2021, I was suddenly discharged from IOP because the team recommended residential treatment.

On August 17, 2021, I was admitted to a virtual PHP for eating disorders, anxiety, depression & PTSD.

On August 31, 2021, I was notified that my employment status is terminated on October 1 and I will lose my health insurance on November 1.

On September 27, 2021, I was admitted to an in-person PHP for eating disorders, anxiety, depression & PTSD.

I continue to struggle emotionally, physically and financially.

If you are able to help me continue treatment by donating $5, I’d greatly appreciate your support.

If you cannot afford to donate, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you.
