going to the psych er

I am to the point where I need to go to the psych er but I am terrified

what will they do

my fears are too terrifying and interfering with my life excessively

i failed my kids

I want to sue my psychiatrist because she had no idea what she was doing and didn;t keep me on the proper meds for a long period of time enough to be effective and kept changing and would even forget what she put me on

I was never this bad when I started

Re: going to the psych er

Every "behavioral unit", i.e. psych ward is different. If they determine that you might harm either yourself or someone else, you become a 5150, -- or worse a 5152. It does sound like you are having an emotional "melt down" and in desperate need of someone qualified to talk to.
If your medical insurance has a crisis number, call it. If not, try suicide hotline. I called it once, and spoke for almost an hour to a woman who was the same age as I was, and who actually lived in the same town. Point being: we instantly connected and she helped tremendously by merely talking.
good luck

Re: going to the psych er

but I am not suicidal at all

I am just terrified of aging and dying and it is interfering too much in my life

and I am extremely depressed and anxious all the time
