I don’t believe my low electrolytes the other night were because of our eating disorder. We have not used laxatives in approximately one month. The paramedics gave us 1 L of fluid in half an hour. Then they took our blood. We contacted the international Society for the study of trauma and dissociation, and they didn’t have any ideas for us either. Heard from our attorney yesterday that even with her closing argument, she did not think she could convince the hearing officer to force insurance to pay for our treatment. We cannot go back to Linden Oaks, we just cannot!!! They didn’t except us for who we were. They didn’t let us fully participate in art therapy because it did not fit their standard mold of how things should be. We could not talk about why we struggled with meals, so really, no real healing took place. We just wish there were something someone could do to help us. Just feels like we are trying to climb a brick wall with slippery wet stones and quicksand beneath our feet. We are trying so hard so so very hard. I just don’t know. I don’t know what else to say. For context, we had to go to the ER on Thursday afternoon and we were there for seven hours. They had to give potassium and magnesium through an IV. The paramedics gave us 1 L of fluids in half an hour and then when we got to the ER they took our blood, so no wonder our electrolytes are out of whack! The potassium going into the IV burned a lot. We could not take potassium orally as the oral tablets make us sick. Wish we didn’t have state-based insurances or that our issues weren’t so complex that we don’t fit into a nice neat little box and no one knows what to do with us. Wish we weren’t so broken!
