So. After a hectic week of trying desperately to seek help

So. After a hectic week of trying desperately to seek help, everything is in place for admission next Tuesday for residential treatment. The past two weeks or so, I found a psychiatrist, an eating disorder specialist therapist, and a medical doctor. I've started on meds for the first time in my life. My psychiatrist said she wouldn't be able to treat me until I was more stable, so I'm going into residential, also for the first time ever, next Tuesday.

I am very nervous and excited and terrified about all of this.

If anyone has had any experience with IP treatment for bulimia, or Tapestry, NC in particular, I would love to hear about it.

Also, since I'm fairly new to this whole taking psych meds for my screwed up coping mechanisms thingie, I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with taking Klonopin and Prozac for bulimia and depression? I've also been prescribed xanax on an as needed basis for general anxiety. Any and all accounts, anecdotal or otherwise, would be helpful.

Thanks.

@MsRobot I hope so! I'm just trying to convince myself that this is more like a boarding school for learning coping skills than, well, prison for crazy people. Lol. Anyways. Thanks for your reply!

@Bo_Fran I think at tapestry you get to go out and do stuff, Ive been to many different places. Some are literally a prison where you can't even go outside, except that was a psych hospital and I was only there week. I know it's scary. Think of it as a safe place to heal :)

Yep, I'm actually pretty excited about going now. It'll be a change in pace and environment, at least.
