Jul31 To be cured Posted on July 31, 2014 by abstemious2eternity Standard The problem is, since all the issues with the treatment center, I don’t want to be cured. I want to show them. And showing them, in my mind, means getting to the point they have to take me seriously.

I teared up a little reading that as I completely understand, especially since technically I’m EDNOS 😦

I know it sounds bad, but I’m afraid of switching to ednos. I was thinking about how I’ve been restricting again, but my body weight isn’t low enough to be classified as anorexic, and wouldn’t be for a while, so I was trying to remember how often the DSM V said you have to binge and purge to be classified as bulimic so I could keep the label. My disordered brain is stupid.
That’s my issue too and my psychologist says she can’t do anything for me if that’s the case. Yep. No matter, I already told her “I don’t want to be here”.
I had a similar conversation with a counselor a few months ago. We ended up cutting the meeting short and I never went back.
And you must also have the insight to realise that you are unwell and need help. Insight being something that is, apparently, quite commonly missing in those who suffer from mental illness. I lived without that insight for a few decades before getting treatment.
