Sorry but where exactly do I sign up? :D

But do you know anything about?

The steps? What you are allowed to bring etc?

On a serious note (sorry couldn't resist that jibe ;) ) no I haven't been in rehab and I have every respect for those who take that step. Addiction is an illness and way too many people treat it as self-indulgence as opposed to a very serious illness.

i dont think your allowed much, some do but i think the majority kinds cut you off from the rest of the world.

I think you simply take comfortable clothes and pyjamas/toiletries et cetera. Anything one takes in is searched by my understanding.

Yes, you can take in an Axim I suppose but usually people are extremely ill initially and not up to hand-held entertainment but relatives can bring in magazines and all that stuff once the person is feeling a little better :)

This is becomming more of a problem amoung young men Jacob. I hope you have benefitted from the therapies you received and you always know that you can turn to me in moments of sheer crisis or relapse as well as sharing the odd joke with me ;)

Lo :hug:

It really is, and what's surprising/scary/shocking is that most of the people in the clinics like that don't know they're doing anything wrong until it's gotten that bad. I certainly didn't. I certainly did benefit from my time there. In fact, I could afford to lose a few pounds right now!:D But thank you for your kindness and know that always, if I need someone to talk to, I shall search you out. :hug:

Why was that? :confused:

21-04-06, 13:28
Why was that? :confused:

Because I had an eating disorder.....:confused:

Yes I know, But, I'm abit confused. Eating disorder is when you don't eat? :confused:

Better known as anorexia, yes. That's one eating disorder. Another common one is Bulemia. In which you throw up the things you eat. Or reverse Bulemia where you take laxitive to ensure the food doesn't settle over much. (EW.)

Ah, Well, I don't eat much. I'm very picky with food. I mean, I hardly eat a thing. I'm as light as a feather ;)

I use to not eat at all but now I eat too much :o and it really upsets me :o

Um, as long as you're on a healthy level with it. I hardly advise advertising that like it could be a good thing. I said that once only to discover being five foot ten and one hundred and ten pounds isn't so healthy...

I'm not a healthy eater either. I can't remember the last time I ate a piece of fruit or vegetables. It's scary.

Lavinder - It makes me upset too :(

They let you bring clothes and hygene products. Even makeup and other things usually.

My mum, who I love so much, has been admitted to rehab today for her alcohol problem. Of course I haven't been to a rehab, but my mum is under detoxication in a hospital. She has lost alot of weight and very, very tired and ill. I hope my mum gets better, in the mean time all I can do is be by her side, and have my other family members be with her also.
