It was kind of a joke…They do not know about eating disorders in emergency rooms….Nor do EMT’s know about eating disorders…. I am just a skinny mental patient to them….I wish I didn’t have “schizoaffective” written on my medic alert information…I’m going to take it off!
More about that later. I will do a full write-up tomorrow. I just spent a while online researching involuntary treatment for eating disorders. I guess you can be involuntarily committed, but not at the ED hospital where I was. Thankfully, it’s the only place that will treat me because they are the only place around that takes my insurance. Also, I looked at the other places around here, and all are voluntary. It takes 48 hours to get this court commitment, anyway.
Where would they take me? New Hampshire? I don’t know. I’m starting to obsess about it.
