Dreams, Hopes & Fears regarding treatment and getting well....

Hello Jeanette!
I can understand why you are feeling fearful and anxious about seeking treatment again...but, I am so excited for you. I have heard you talk about your educational goals, your desire for a family, health, etc. and you are taking an important step toward realizing these goals....Babycakes -- if I can get over this blasted eating disorder, I know you can.........life is still not a bowl of cherries all the time, but at least I now have a loving family of my own, am completing my educational & career goals, am healthy, and probably most importantly, am able to use my God given gifts to serve others who are hurting and want to get better.......You too, can be a "wounded healer", even if you specialize in something unrelated to eating disorder recovery, your insight, sensitivity and spirit will be a blessing to many who cross your path....you have endured so much already, it is time for you to have some of the sweeter side of life.......maybe this time treatment will be the launching pad of a much richer, fuller and peaceful life!
You can do this...

Jeanette! I am so proud of you for all that your doing. Treatment is hard, and even harder if you've done it before. It's hard to admit defeat, and ask for help again. We are all rooting for you. I'm holding you in my thoughts and prayers. Keep us all posted. Much love always!

Hey everyone!

Well I just wanted to tell everyone that Jeannette can get e-mails that we send her. She can't send us back e-mails but she will get ours if we send them. keep her in your prayers. But here are the steps to e-mail her if you would like to.

1. go to:http://www.baptist-lutheranmedicalcenter.com/

2. Then look down on the left for it to say "Friends and Family". Under that it says "Patient E-mail Service" click on that.

3. Read that info and it tells ya about what times she will get the e-mails and stuff. Then when you go down to the bottom of the page it says "Click Here" click on that.

on the room thing just put the 8th floor ummm just make sure you have her full name on it so it will get to her. if you have any ques about it leave it on the blog and maybe i can help ya on in. Thanks girls. I know she will love to hear from everyone.
