I was diagnosed with anorexia in September of 2009 - suffering with it way before I was diagnosed. After trying therapy and a nutritionist once a week, my family realized that this wasn't going to work. My doctor sent me for an EKG and they panicked because my heart rate was very low. They sent me for another one the next day, and that day I was admitted into a hospital. I was there 10 days, because I cooperated, and gained 4 pounds while there.
Since then, I've gained about 25 pounds and I have 3 to go to be at full recovery. This isn't the reason I am writing you though. I am writing you because in December, I came up with an idea - I wanted to help others who suffered. I came up with a name for it - ACKMA. It stands for anorexia can't kick my appetite, but it won't only help people with anorexia, it will help with all disorders. I got working on it, got a domain for it, (www.ackma.us) I started receiving donations, I have a little over 100 dollars so far. I need to get to 1000 to make it a legal non profit, and after I get ACKMA to where it's legal I want to help pay for people who suffer who don't have insurance, because I know some times the reason people aren't getting help is because they don't have insurance.
I am not posting this as a project until I get the non profit tax number so I can make it a "charity" on here.
