I was an inpatient at the Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders for around three months in 2015. I can honestly say that this place saved my life. Before my admission I was surviving, but all the life I once had within myself had been cruelly stolen from me by this illness. I was not living, I was merely going through day to day motions which caused both me and my family constant worry, heartache and arguments.
Throughout my stay I was listened to, cared for and involved in my care - I was constantly the centre of my own care, and it was something that was appreciated to a great extent. I was helped and aided in my recovery by an excellent team of professionals who eventually discharged me to a wonderful community team (which I have since also been discharged from) and I have gained so much more life back.
