I am pleased to dedicate my very first Fabulous Friday piece to none other than JoAnn Martin, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Terri Morris, LPN! You da best. 😀
These two fabulous women have been there for me from the start. They knew me for years before I developed my eating disorder, and they have been with me every step of the way. I couldn’t ask for two better co-captains of my recovery team!
Coincidentally, today’s theme for NEDAwareness week is about medical professionals. Many eating disorders are misdiagnosed or even overlooked– a very dangerous and serious issue. Not so with these ladies. I was very blessed to have them. I am proud to say that they were able to pinpoint my problem from the get-go and set me on the path to recovery. I know I was stubborn at times, but they kept me straight. I don’t know where I would be without them.
In fact, shout out to everyone at TCMC for being so kind to me. I think I became an all-too-familiar face there, but no one seemed to mind. I was treated like more than just another patient. You guys are awesome.
J and T, if you’re reading this, I can only hope to one day touch someone’s life in the same way you have touched mine. Everything that I am able to do today is because of you. Today, I am stronger, happier, and healthier than ever! I cannot thank you enough. Please keep being the Beyoncé and Shakira of nurses!
Xoxo, Annie ❤
