Since the therapy stopped, I found that I thought about and ‘used’ food far less as a coping mechanism…
Thank you does not quite justify the gratitude I have for this service and the clinicians who work so hard to support those of us struggling in the community. At a time when services are so stretched and resources are so limited, it has honestly been astounding the level of care I have received and the thoughtfulness with which you have approached my difficulties from the very first assessment with XX, to the very prompt dietetic appointment with XX and therapy with XX…The support you have also given XX (carer) alongside all that you have offered me has been such a blessing. I know that seeing XX is the only thing that has kept him sane throughout this ordeal!
I cannot describe how happy I am having through the DBT process; it has been such a positive experience. Not only have you helped me in my recovery, I finally feel stigma free and very much looking forward to the future and having the skills learnt to help me in challenging times.
I’m doing pretty good. As I said when I left EDS, all I can do now is accept things as they are. Some days that happens…some days it doesn’t. But I’m just going day by day and not expecting too much from myself and it seems to be alright…I have finally had my university results back- I got a first! I don’t know how or by what source of wizardry but it happened!…my Chile experience have been amazing…I’ve really had the time of my life.
