Treatment Expenses

I've been struggling with an eating disorder on and off for many years. For a while, I closed myself off and tried to fight it alone. I was ashamed and embarrassed and at times still in denial about the dangers associated with my behaviors. Even when I finally did admit to myself that it was an issue, I still didn't believe I was "sick enough" to deserve help. Of course, that was not the case. Recently, I was admitted into an intensive outpatient program for treatment and have been going ever since. I've had to put my career on hold in order to focus on my health, and while it was ultimately the right decision, I'm starting to feel a buildup of some of the financial pressures that come with the travel and medical expenses involved.  As a result, I'm launching this campaign with the hope of alleviating some of that burden so I can focus as much of my time and energy on recovery as possible.  

Thank you for supporting me in this difficult time.  Everyone who donates will be mentioned by name in the "acknowledgements" section of the recovery book I will be publishing. 

Sincerely, 
Kristen Costello
