The funds raised will go towards paying for my treatment at McCallum Place.

My name is Kelsi, and I'm trying to do everything in my power in order to receive enough funds for at least a month of treatment for a disease I've had for nearly five years now--an eating disorder. I've had issues with my insurance company and am now trying to come up with the funds on my own to help get the treatment I so desperately need and want. I hope that you will read my story and help me so that I can go on to help others. It's incredibly difficult for me to ask for help, because I'm generally a private person. Even with a blog, that only shows a glimpse of who I am and what I go through. No one really has any idea. I have been in and out of outpatient treatment for a while now. With my current team, everyone is on board that I simply am no longer making progress and I need a higher level of care. I am in a place where I am wanting and willing to get help. I am so tired of living in this hell everyday. I've come close to committing suicide twice, I just don't know how much longer I can last in this mental anguish. I'm looking into McCallum Place as being my treatment center. It's recommended that I do their PHP (partial hospitalization program). Unfortunately, my insurance company does not cover that. I know we're living in some tough economic times, but if you could give anything, ANYTHING; no matter if it's a dollar or a hundred dollars, I'd appreciate it. I was so desperately to get rid of this disorder. I want to get better. I want to be able to live my life without this holding me back. I want to be able to live, and not worry about food or calories, or wanting to kill myself because of those reasons. I truly feel like going away to treatment would save my life. I want to go. I am ready and willing to do the work on myself. Please help me make my dream a reality. I'd really appreciate it. I'd also appreciate it if you could forward this to family and friends. I need to get as many people involved as possible. If you want more information, you can contact me at my email address: Thank you, Kelsi
