Gabby's Eating Disorder Recovery

As many of you know, I have been diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa. Over the past 5 years, I have been in and out of treatment, trying to get my life back together. I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to partake in treatment at Sick Kids Hospital and Toronto General Hospital. However, I have not been successful in sustaining full recovery. But the past 2 years have been extremely stressful and extremely hard on my family. My mother has supported me immensely throughout this whole process, she has sacrificed so much for me, like her job, her friends and her time. She has been with me every step of the way, but she has to do it all alone. She has been working almost every single day of the week, for about 10 hours a day, for almost 2 years just to be able to pay for the treatment that I need in order to get better. There is no one supporting her through this journey, but she has somehow been able to provide me with the gift of going back for another round of treatment at Homewood Health Centres Residential Eating Disorders Program. The only downside is that treatment is extremely expensive, and she has already spent the past 4 years supporting me through this extremely difficult journey.
I have created this gofundme page for her, so that I can be able to help her pay for my treatment. She is an amazing caring woman but she can only do so much, and it pains me to see all of the stress that she has had to put on herself. I have been in treatment for almost 3 months now, but my journey has really just started. I have been able to accomplish many things over the past 3 months, but there is so much more that I hope to accomplish. I believe that this is my time, this is the first time I have ever felt that way, and I don't want it to end. I don't want to have to go through another round of treatment and watch my loved ones suffer anymore than they already have. I want to be able to get better and eventually look back and say, I did it, I beat Anorexia. I want my mom to be able to look at me again as her daughter, and not a lost girl. But I can't bear to see her do this to herself anymore. I hope that you all see something in me and see that hope that I now see. I will forever be grateful for all the support I have gotten and continue to get. Thank you

Gabby
