I was taught a breathing exercise that was the first one to work in the entirety of my life (with a watch - breathe in 20 seconds with your nose, hold for 20 seconds, spend 20 seconds blowing out). It was the first time in my entire life where I was capable of thinking only one thought at a time, which is an impressive feat.
My doctor is super Zen and is making a referral for me to see a private psychologist regarding my emotional regulation issues. Apparently she will be able to teach me mindfulness better than I have been accomplishing so far (or I'll just have to get my hands on Toni's book! http://www.howtobesick.com/)
I was also prescribed Nabilone, which has allowed me to get up and cook some light food over the past two days. I am still occasionally throwing up, but that's better than starving myself. I can't wait for food to become an easy addition to my life again!
Either way, it's some treatment and some help. That's all one can really ask for in this position. It's a beautiful day and I can't wait for Jonathan to wake up so we can go sit in the sun :).
