Its been 1 year since inpatient

OH my gosh... I just realized tonight that it has been one year since I signed myself into the hospital.
I just went and checked earlier dates on my journal here. I am not sure what to think. I'm afraid to say "I've made a lot of progress since then" because even though I FEEL like I have, what if it isn't true? What if my therapist would say I haven't? We have had a couple of good, 2 hour sessions this week. Inside we have been working together a lot better. And.... *drumroll, please*.... I've been sticking to my meal plan for over a month now. Which to me feels like a huge, big deal. Thats longer than I've ever stuck to it. There was even one day when I managed to get in over 2,000 calories (1st time EVER, I'm sure!). Usually its hard for me to even get up to 1,000 calories a day. So I'm sure that if my nutritionist knew that I got up to 2000 the other day, she'd do a happy dance. bah.
I can't believe its been a year.

this is a good thing. it use to be that i was IP every other month..literally every other month. in 1997 I was IP 13 times. when we make these huse steps of managing outside the hospital it is something to celebrate. June 5th would have been my 3rd year out of the hospital but as you know I kinda broke my stretch. i'll still have a moment of pause on the 5th of June though because even though I had to go in the work i've done in the past still stands.

smiles to you,
