(in no particular order)
- You measure the cost of things in nutrition appointments (ex: That shirt is one nutrition appointment. These shoes are worth two appointments).
- You start dressing like your professionals (or maybe, they starts dressing like you…)
- “Treatment” is a recurring event with no end date on your calendar.
- You’ve never needed to purchase “Eating in the Light of the Moon” because at some point you have been given a photocopy of every chapter.
- In group, no one sits in your seat, even when you’re not there (because you’ve been sitting there since last year).
- The group therapist wishes you would just finish treatment already so that she could start recycling therapy topics.
- You remember when some of the current therapists were interns.
- You’ve modified the standard food log template to create your own (improved, of course)
- Your therapist notices when you buy a new outfit (since she’s seen all of your other clothing).
- When considering changing jobs, the new company’s mental health insurance is a deciding factor.
I am not guilty of all of these…. but more than a few.
