Before entering Rosewood, I was in complete denial about my eating disorder. I had lived with dysfunction and depression for 34 years, thinking that was just the way my life was. Little did I know how maladapted my behaviors and thoughts were surrounding food. It turned out that my life was controlled by a disease I thought I had left behind. At Rosewood, I discovered who I really am and what I am capable of. ED had dictated everything in my life prior to this. Today I get to live a life I love and food is a positive part of that. I have gained in confidence and self-esteem, something I had always lacked. Rosewood saved my life and gave me hope. I couldn’t have gotten where I am today without the amazing support and love of everyone there and the new friends I made while in treatment.
