View Full Version : Needing prayers for DD's eating disorder

February 5th, 2015, 12:58 AM
I've been scarce on the forum the past few months. My daughter's eating disorder has acted up again. Hers is driven by intense anxiety. Today she was able to get herself back into treatment but she had to go 1,500 miles away from home to get help. My biggest prayer is that the insurance company will allow her to stay in treatment until she is stable- and learns more how to fight this terrible disease. We almost lost her 3 years ago so I'm really glad she is back in treatment - even tho I'm missing her so much tonight. Treatment costs so much that the insurance companies don't want to fund eating disorders but the treatment saved her life the last time and I know a woman from church who lost her daughter to an eating disorder about the same time DD was diagnosed. We're not even sure that the insurance company will cover her at all this time until the docs check her out one more time tomorrow and petition the insurance company. I sure could use your prayers- for both of us. She is so afraid the insurance will turn her down. Thanks so much!

Definitely sending prayers for you and your DD. Let me suggest that you NOT just accept if the ins. co. says no coverage. Thru prior exp w/ ins. co., ask for an appeal 'n ask the Dr. to submit/resubmit prior med. history. I know ins. approval/denial are changing with recent upheaval in med industry - BUT when you're persistent and won't take 'no' for an answer, things can change. Sorry, ins coverage is a sore subject for me - just persist! Let us know how your DD makes out. :icon_hug:

Prayers for all of you to come through this. Hugs to you as I know it's hard to have your daughter so far from you.

Hi Lilly, My daughter has an eating disorder as well. I sympathize with your situation. It is such a worry. I hope the treatment will be successful and that it gets your daughter back on track.

Lilly, my prayers are certainly with you all. My YDD suffered terribly from anxiety, though she seems to be doing better now, I know the feeling of helplessness - you want to do something - anything - that will help, but just don't know what that it.

Praying for your daughter - and a hug to you, mom :)

Hoping that the insurance company will come through. So sorry your DD is going through this. (((HUGS))) xox

Thank you everyone! Your prayers and kind words mean the world to me. I think we should know in the next 2 days if they will keep her. I'm pretty sure she had to give up her phone and computer and with the privacy laws that means I'll be totally out of the loop and probably not know anything unless she is rejected and needs a ticket home. Sheesh - I AM the one paying the bills here. Over the years I've gotten pretty stoic and my emotions are very low and steady in the face of all of this but the last 36 hours I've been unusually weepy. Knowing that you all are with me is so important. Thanks again!
