Hi My Name is Tracie I'm 43 and have lived with anorexia for over 17 tortured years. I have the most amazing family who loves me for who I am. I have a loving husband, 2 amazing girls who are 7 and 15. I want to see them grow up, get married, for the birth of there children, and spoil and love my grandchildren. I look forward to making many memories, laughs and tears with my family. I'm the luckiest woman in the world.
Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.
My Insurance company will not cover me for Residential treatment. My doctors have asked me if I have a death wish and told me there is nothing else they can do to help me unless I get the care I need to recover. They all recommend the I go in to a residential treatment. The treatment center that suits my needs in my area requires a $27,000.00 deposit in addition It cost $27,000 per month. The recommend stay for the greatest success rate is 45 to 60 days.I'm also responsible for and any blood work, medications, EKG's and any other test I will have during my stay. I'm entering inpatient hospital care while I try to get the cost of residential care. My insurance will cover only 30 days and cover 80% of the cost. It will cost a minimum of $15,000 for the month.
Thank you for your help!
