Meggie Sexton was kind enough to share hers with us recently. Meggie says; “After struggling with bulimia, anorexia and exercise addiction for six years, I decided I needed to put myself first and take a chance by going away to inpatient treatment before my life slipped away anymore. I put my job on hold, my doctoral degree on hold, you name it…but I knew if I didn’t get my health back in order, none of those long-term professional, educational or personal goals were going to be reached.
The seven hour plane ride to Arizona back in October of 2010 was the most painful, slow-moving time of my life. Once I arrived at Remuda, I was scared, and my eating disorder was defensive. Over time, I fell in love with the support system there, and I relearned how to love myself. At the end of my 45 days, to be honest, I didn’t want to leave that safety net. Fast forward to today, and I have a loving husband, Sam, we have settled into our first starter-home, and we have two healthy baby boys, Connor and Cooper. Without the help of Remuda, I don’t know that I ever would have dug myself out of the deep, dark and awful hole of eating disorders. Iam forever grateful for their help, and I truly believe they helped save my life.
