Don't give up!

You came to the right place, misbubbles101. NEDA has some resources regarding this very issue. Unfortunately, it's a common one. There are steps one can take, including being a part of research studies and submitting an appeal with your insurance company. Please go here for more information:

Also, if you got to http://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/find-treatment/support-groups-res... and select Research Studies and then Wisconsin, you can find some of the research studies in your area.

Please call NEDA at 1-800-931-2237 M-F 9am-5pm EST and they can provide you with further resources and talk to you about this specific issue.

PLEASE don't give up on yourself! You are worthy of recovery and an ED free life. I know the fight can get tough at times, but you CAN do this :)
