It was a rough week. I was inpatient for 6 days and came home last night. I am starting IOP on Monday. It's a program Mon-Thurs and it's from 3:30-7:30 every day. You attend groups and eat dinner there. I am hoping it will be a really positive thing.
The hospital was NOT what I expected, both good and bad. I did manage to get myself back on track though, for real this time. No half-assing my recovery any longer. I didn't even realize how bad things were until my blood glucose level fell dangerously low and my heart rate slowed in the hospital. Now, however, I'm happy to report I am doing really well, all my labs have been normal, and my weight went WAY up even in just a week!
So, I am on my way. I will try to read your blogs and catch up on what you all have been up to! Thanks for your supportive comments on my last post.
I know this journey is going to be long and bumpy, but being in IP made me realize just how important it is for me to get better RIGHT NOW. Today is the first day of the rest of my life, and I refuse to waste it any longer.
Much love to you all, and I'll post more later!
