Something’s not right

Re: Inpatient with an eating disorder

@outlander I thought I'd give a go of talking to my nurse tonight...went terrible. She just said I'm not fat. That if me having x c*lories is nothing compared to her and than what does that make her...and she said all this stuff like that.

I also mentioned my voices yo her and my feelings of stuff under my skin and she freaked out..not good. I hope she doesn't call a Dr.



I'm going to try to sleep. Tomorrow is a new day.

Re: Inpatient with an eating disorder

That's so rough @The-red-centaur im sorry you didn't get an empthetic nurse. She maybe hasnt had much
experience with people with more severe mental health consitions so wasnt sure how to react. I do hope tomorrow is better for you.
