    I feel better, I did go to the facility for eating disorders today. It's one of the best in the country- Renfrew. They said in-patient for 28 days would be a good idea, and I agree. I had to go to my family Dr for an EKG that came back fine and tomorrow I have to do the labwork. After those results come in, by Friday most likely, they'll call me Monday and set everything up. I did tell husband after all, it was 2 1/2 hours away, I couldn't go without letting him know. He wanted to take off from work and come with me, but I needed to go alone. Today I weighed 96.3 with all my clothes on.

    Thank you for your support, I was thinking about all of you, I was a little scared. ((((HUGS))) to all of you!-Alyssa

    it's good to hear that husband is being supportive. Given all the tests come out positive, when would you be going in?

    Hi, I just wanted to let you ladies know that today is the day. I have to be there at 8am. I'm fine, just a little embarrassed. I don't want anyone in my life to think less of me, or that I'm mentally ill. My lab work came back yesterday, and they asked when I want to come, I said tomorrow. Still, nobody knows, not one relative, husband will tell them. I don't need a pity party here. You should have seen me yesterday, I finished all the Christmas shopping, wrapping, and cleaning out the refrigerator. Now I have to leave instructions on the washer and dryer- I can't imagine how messy my house will be when I get back, lol!

    husband will bring me the Christmas card list, hopefully I can do my cards to you all there- otherwise you may get the cards from me in January! Have a great holiday! (((HUGS)))- Alyssa
