Hi Slz,
 
I think this is wonderful news.  Look it...a few days ago you were contemplating going into the hospital because that is how bad things were for you.  Now today you find out that you will be involved in a day program.  I think this is a perfect balance for you!
 
I've been involved in a day program twice.  Each time it has helped me tremendously get through the most difficult times for me.  You will learn a lot and find much support!
 
Please keep us posted.

Sukay,
 
 I was hopping you would reply to this. You have gone twice, but the thought of doing it makes me feel like I am going back to work where I will be judged and not do good. I am realy scared of that! I have wanted to cry since I found out. My t says she feels that I need monitoring for my behaivor and that instead of going to he hospital go to day treatment. I am so scared she stated that I could be there for up to 90 days! I would not care so much I guess if my son were in school right now because financialy we can not afford to have someone watch him. My program is from 9am to 3pm Mon-Fri. I will get to see him quiet a bit I guess. First off I will have to have my disability go through again it has taken them almost a month to decide if they are going to pay me. If they deny my claim I will not be going because that is 1/2 our income and then I will not be able to pay for my son to go anywhere or the gas to go. Please pray for me that everything will work out. I need lots of prayers right now and I am praying myself that I do not die of a heart attack between now and when I get there of worry.   I will keep you posted on the disability claim situation because it all comes down to that weather I go or not. If anyone has a suggestion to get through untill I go or on my first day please let me know.

I know you're worrying a lot right now, SLZ, but you have to try and let go of that a little bit and do what's good for YOU right now a little bit. This is good for you. Just go and try to get the most out of it that you can. If you're a "good student" you won't have to stay as long. :-)

I haven't heard from Olivia about a chat and I'm out of town again, so I can't hold the chat this week. I'm sorry.

Serafena,

Thank you for responding even though you are out of town! I went today and it was o.k. I was not all that impressed. The pdr did change my meds around and he stated that I need to loose weight and yeah I know this so some of the meds he gave me are to help with my problems hand help me loose some weight which I hope works. The staff are very nice but the people there are ok I guess only one guy was willing to let me know what the rutine is and what we do each day. Everyone realy just seemed to ignore me. Thats fine because I am not there to make friends I am there to get help and get better. Glad I went but at the sametime wish there was an ulternative to being there for 6 boring hours. the only hour I found interesting was when we were in group therpy. Well I am rambling on so just thought I would give an update.

Hi Slz,

Give it time.  Most things that are new are hard to get use to.  Remember these people there are going through difficult times themselves and need time as well to the adjustment.

As everyone gets to know each other and feels safe, things will get easier and people will start to reach out to one another and start to bond.

Keep forging ahead and give it time.

Keep us posted!  (((Hugs))) blush

sukay,

Thank You for the kind words. I will keep plugging away at this untill they release me but I am not all that optomistic from what I saw yesterday, but they did have some staff missing so maybe that is why and also I was called out of every session to do something I even had to do a drug test. Oh well I know I will pass it but it just makes me feel degrated. I am going again today and maybe things will be easier than yesterday I know a little more and might be more comfortable. I have to sit by the door though because my agraphobia gets to me at times and I have to get up and leave if I start feeling my anxiety coming on. Yesterday I did good. Well I will write back on Friday if today goes the same as yesterday.

Sorry i have not been on my computer had a virus and i did not have te money to get it fixed. As for the day program i quite after 2 days because I went to see the dr on the second day he through my chart at me and it said on the front drug seeker and he asked me what that was all about. I told him I did not know and that I have seen the same pdr for 5 years now and use the same pharmacy for that amount of time. Then he stated I just wanted to know but this is not my practice so i dont care if you are or not but I will not keep giving you what your pdr was giving you (klonopin) because it is a controled substance. So then when I got home I called to find out why that would be on my chart and they played it off like they had no idea what I was talking about!! So to make a realy long story short it did not work out for me. How are you Sukay? I have been ok and I am still off work and scared to go back i am to go back on sept 28 the last I heard but I have an appointment with my pdr this week and I hope he gives me just a little more time seeing that I just started feeling better. there is so much going on in my life right now I would have to use up way to much space to write all that has happened since my computer went down if you realy want to know more let me know and I can tell you the rest.

Wow, SLZ, that sounds horrible! It's one of my fears-that I'll get labeled as a drug-seeker, even though I've only been to the ER once for pain (and had several layers of skin gone and exposed nerves, so it was justified!). I hope you can find another program that is more suitable for you.

I'm so sorry SLZ. That's unfair and totally unhelpful. I'm disappointed and angry for you. Keep your chin up and please feel free to tell us what's going on.

How terrible slz. I hope you do not get deterred from seeking out the help you need. That can be discouraging. Keep us updated on how you are doing.

I am doing ok but I think that I will have to go back to work soon and I am scared out of my mind. I ran into a coworker at the store and she point blank asked me "What is wrong with you?" I did not answer the question just stated that I am doing ok and that I would be back to work on the 28th. (hope not) and left it at that. I wish I did stay in the program because maybe the people there would be able to give me suggestions on how to handle going back to work and how to deal with all the questions when I go back! If anyone has an answer to this question or has a suggestion on how to talk to my pdr about my conserns of working again please write back. Thank You

Hi slz,
 
Don't worry about answering anyone's questions that you aren't ready to when it comes to co-workers.  Just simply say that you have been going through a very difficult time and that it is personal.
 
Maybe you could share with us a little bit at a time of what you have been going through.  Are you still involved with therapy?
