I haven’t posted in a while as I am finding focusing on recovery enough to cope with at the moment!
But I have good news! Things are finally getting better! I have turned a corner, I am finding eating less scary, I am less anxious about gaining weight, I am feeling physically and mentally stronger.
It is a long, slow process, but after being in hospital for 100 days things are looking up! I am still under section, but hopefully that will be lifted soon.
After being NG fed for a while I gradually transitioned to drinking Fortisip, and then added food in – I am now on my sixth day without Fortisip and am almost completing all my meals.
It’s still going to be a while before I am ready to go home, but I am feeling proud of myself for managing to turn things around. My motivation to recover varies but generally I feel much more positive about the future.
