Well this has been the 3 days from hell! I can tell anyone who even thinks of not taking there meds, or that BP highs are fun, or that they can get through the lows all by themselves....think again. I just spent the last 3 days in the locked down psych ward and I thought I was going to go crazier than I already was. Thank god I got out this evening and I'm back in my own home and my own bed.
Nothing feels better than coming home. But man when you get to that point where you know your out of control nothing is better than going in. IMHO! There have been times I was so glad to go in and got the feeling of being realy safe once I was there.
Well I was not hypo I went in because i'd been really depressed and I o'd on pills...and was pretty involuntary, the decision was made by my pdoc and my husband and once they had me there, the locks were on. Trust me the psych ward of a hospital is not a place I choose to go anyplace again in the near future.
No I was still taking my meds, the depression just got the best of me. The hospital itself was fine, and the staff was nice, I just don't do well in a closed in evironment with people watching me every minute of the day. The first 24 hours I was on the med floor and I had a "sitter" who literally stayed with me every minute, I couldn't even close the door all the way to go to the bathroom. After I was moved to the Psych floor it was just people in my face all the time and once again being watched...checking my room every 15 minutes, etc. And I don't work well with strangers, I don't trust them and I don't like being around them. So it just wasn't an atmosphere that was conducive to me receiving much help. I got out Monday night and have had appointments with my pdoc every day this week and that's worked better.
