Time won't be up to me -- it'll be up to insurance. The good news is that my insurance seems to be one that doesn't limit the criteria to weight, so there's a good chance of the three weeks -- I doubt very much they'll go four. And I may decide that it's not right for me and come home sooner, too.

I'm told they have a policy of asking you to create an outpatient team for when you leave, consisting of dietitian, therapist, group therapy, and a psychiatrist. That's not going to happen for me -- especially the part about twice a week therapy. I just can't afford it, and insurance doesn't cover it all. I've seen a dietitian, and taken nutritional science courses, so I think I'll be OK on that front. I do have a psychiatrist, and a therapist, and I'll continue seeing both. I'll do what I can.

They do have a sort of halfway house style program, but I can't afford something like that, and can't be away that long anyway. So, I'm looking at two to three weeks, and then back to my life. At least maybe I'll get back having had a respite from my marriage and my life.

Thanks for caring, Twinleaf.
