I’ve been struggling with self harm and an eating disorder for 5 years. I’ve been to the same residential treatment facility specifically for the ed 3 times, and nothing has really helped. Lately, my self injury and bulimia is SO bad that I’m beginning to experience dangerous medical consequences. I know I need residential treatment again, and S.A.F.E. seems like a really good place for me right now. I just graduated from high school, and leave for college in a month though. And since my past treatment has failed, my parents don’t agree with me going. I really don’t know what to do. If I go, I won’t be able to start college on time, and I really don’t want to do that. I’m desperate for advice!! I’m really scared and just want to be okay.
