Default Super Scared

So, I booked a phone interview with a clinician at Eating Recovery Center for tomorrow morning. Iím very anxious about itó this is the first time in many years that Iíve actively sought treatment for my eating disorder, because the last two eating disorder centers that I worked with were absolutely horrible. Iím very scared that this wonít work out, that Iíll be judged and my feelings will be completely disregarded and ignored like before. Granted, itís a different time and place and I am more receptive at this point towards working on recovery than I was before, and hopefully that will make a difference this time. One thing Iím really worried about is working with a medical provider at this clinic. Iím sorry to be blunt when I say this, but it needs to be said: Doctors are Assholes when it comes to treating eating disorders. They donít understand, they donít want to understand, and when I was at the lowest point in my life with my eating disorders back from 2014-2018, they did way more harm than good. I donít trust them and I donít believe them when they say they are trying to help me. Thatís pure ********. But Iím scared they will make me work with one. Ugh. I just donít know how this will turn out, and Iím so scared.

That must be a stressful situation for you. So sorry!

People don't seem able to understand things they haven't personally experienced and struggled against. It is a sad and frustrating situation.

I hope things are different for you this time than in times past. Your anxiety is perfectly understandable in the circumstances.

Wish I knew what to say that would help. Sometimes one wants to be helpful but just doesn't know how.

My wish if that things will go well for you tomorrow and in the days ahead!

Update: so, they were very nice and professional, but they only go as low as IOP (Intensive Outpatient) programs. We established that right now, I just need a therapist and a dietitian who are both well-versed in handling eating disorders. Back to the drawing boardÖ at least they were honest.
