I went to Rosewood back in October of 2015 for Bulimia Nervosa. I was in inpatient for 33 days and discharged in November. I can say that I’m very happy that I went to Rosewood for treatment. Before I went to Rosewood, I had told a lie that I had been holding in for about 3 years. While in treatment, I came out about that lie simply because I had constant guilt. I was starting to become very depressed and lonely because no one knew the truth about me. I realized what had been keeping me from telling the truth.
I took the time to get to know people and to get to know what it’s like to be in recovery. It’s been a very long and painful ride, and it’s been one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. I have met some of the most loving and caring people in treatment. People that have supported me since day one. They are a big influence in my recovery. I’m still learning how to cope and to love myself. I’m learning that the things in my past do not define who I am today. I am very proud of the person I have become and the things I have been able to come out about. I’m very thankful that Rosewood was there for me. Now I can live my life and do the things I love to do.
