Therapy was amazing! We clicked straight away :) she’s going to see me every week, and twice a week if I need to. She said I can ring her if I’m struggling and she will talk me through it. And she thinks me stars in a jar is a great coping strategy, she said that we are going to get jars and jars full of stars all around my room! Oh my god, happiness levels so high right now!!!
Anonymous asked: Hey rosy! Do you ever wear leggings? Lots of people in recovery seem to but i feel like i'm too big for them
You are never ‘too big’ for leggings, you may feel too big, but I’m sure it’s just in your mind. I understand where you’re coming from, it’s hard to wear tight clothes, but you have to remind yourself that it’s just your eating disorder playing tricks on you. I don’t wear leggings very often because all of mine have holes in them :O ! I really need to buy some more..
I’m off to my first therapy session with my private therapist! Hopefully it will go well :)

Anonymous asked: why aren't they offering you dbt as an outpatient? :/ I mean that's kind of harsh, what do they expect you to do? i swear they only care if you are on the verge of killing yourself -.-
Apparently that don’t have outpatient DBT where I am. Even when I attempted suicide they didn’t offer it to me. The only thing they said was I could go into a low secure unit (arrgghh!!!) and have DBT there, but then I probably wouldn’t get funding for it because I wasn’t that “severe”. I really wish they was a way I could get DBT, but I guess I’ll just have to make do without it :/ thank you love xxxx
TODAY IS ONE YEAR THAT I’VE BEEN DISCHARGED FROM RHODES FARM!!!!
The year has been full of challenges, set backs, and triumphs! I’ve eaten foods I never thought I’d eat again, whole pizzas, chocolate, clotted cream, bacon, and red meat. I’ve gained over my target weight and accepted it. I’ve made new friends, got a job, and made plans for the future. I never thought I’d be able to eat exactly what I wanted and not feel guilty, but I did it.
Rhodes farm changed my life, it gave me a life. I came to Rhodes as a troubled, scared, young girl. I hit rock bottom, but slowly built myself back up. I can never thank the staff enough for bringing Rosy back and giving me a life. Thank you to everyone that’s stuck by me through this year!
Anonymous asked: I went to Australia from the UK to seek treatment, and it's seriously so much better than the NHS, and went against the idea of drugging me up (and free with medicare), I managed to recover from bpd and bulimia whilst I was out there with their healthcare system. The waiting list was about one month for me in Australia and ten months for the UK, but I would say that it was definitely worth it. I'm back in the uk now and able to function on my own.
Can I ask what part of Australia you went to? I’ll defiantly keep this is mind. It’s something I’d consider doing if things don’t improve in the uk. I’m so glad you are able to look after yourself now, that’s amazing and so inspiring! Did you go inpatient or outpatient? Xx
