I spent Thursday night and Friday morning in the emergency room. I’m physically okay now, but my mind is still bruised from a comment one of the doctors made.
While there are many, many things about which I can complain from that night, the one that I truly cannot get past is what the attending doctor said about my eating disorder. I am very far into my recovery, and the health issues that brought me to the hospital were very unlikely to be related to my eating disorder. That’s what made this experience even more upsetting.
