Welcome to Polly Sjoberg's Personal Page
These past few months have been the most challenging of my life. My plan was to enjoy my third semester at my dream school, come home for break and spend time with the people here that I love, go back to the business school at UNC, and then study abroad in Copenhagen with my friends. My plan was shattered. On October 3rd, I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. The past 29 days I have been receiving treatment at Melrose Center, and this journey is far from over. But, the support that I have received has been incredible. I can’t even put into words how much I appreciate it, and how much it has helped my recovery. My friends, the people at melrose, my grandparents, siblings, and my parents who have visited me each of the 29 days I have been at Melrose. You have all been my motivation for recovery. I am expected to remain in residential treatment until the middle of february. The Mall of America is hosting the MN NEDA walk on February 26th, and I am thrilled to say that I am participating. This has been the scariest, and most confusing time for me, and I want to do whatever I can to raise awareness and raise money to fight eating disorders. I would love if you would join in on this with me, as it is something I am so passionate about.
