I was admitted, against my wishes, to the hospital on Tuesday. They had me on a 72 hr hold, which I thought was ridiculous. They didn't give me any medications because they weren't comfortable with prescribing any while I'm pregnant. I just don't get it. They put me in there for a reason, but did absolutely nothing to help?!?! I did finally get some sleep last night though! They would only give me Benadryl to help me sleep, which didn't help. I ended up having a migraine yesterday, because of all the stress, which exhausted me even more than I already was after not sleeping any more than 4 hrs a night for almost a week straight. So, I guess the migraine was a little present to help me sleep. haha One good thing that came out of this was that my husband is home now! My parents contacted the Red Cross when they put me in the hospital and were threatening to get a social worker to come and take my son, since I didn't have anyone to take care of him. They pulled some strings and got him flown off the ship to come home and take care of our son while I was away. I ended up having a neighbor take him until my husband got home though, so everything worked out. I'm just irritated that they put me in there against my will, took me from my son, threatened to take my son from me, and then didn't give me anything to help with the mood swings.....I just don't get it...

How is everyone else doing this week?

We all go through hard times, I'm just hoping this is almost all done. I'm a lot more calm than I was a few days ago. Still not sleeping that much, but I'm starting to get my appetite back, I'm not nearly as manic, and I haven't had any bad thought for almost two days. Which is a HUGE improvement, considering I was crying every few hrs and not wanting to be here anymore!
Tortoise~ The baby isn't due until Feb.15th. What's going on with you hun?
Genetic~ Thanks for the kind words. My husband will be able to stay home until Nov, but then he's gone for 7 months. My dad is almost insisting that the kids and I come and stay with them in WA state when he leaves. He doesn't want this to happen again and have the kids taken away or me really hurt myself. I just cut a little, but he knows it could of, and has, been a lot worse. I haven't had any caffeine in like three days and it's taking everything I have to not go to the store and get some, but I'm doing it. I FINALLY got more than 4 hrs of sleep last night! Hopefully, I'm on my way to a little more normalcy. I'm just hoping no more mixed moods or major depression comes around....Hopefully things will start balancing out...One day at a time, that's all we can really focus on.

I'm glad you're starting to get a little break! Isn't that caffiene addictive?! I crave it terribly whenever I'm in an elevated mood. I am recovering from a mild (but scary-bad) mixed episode, and I am so glad that I resisted the caffiene temptation. Any worse and I would be jailed and in the news. :(

My bad day was medication side effects. It was miserable, but I am OK now. :) TY for asking.

I know that self-care can be very powerful stuff, but it takes a lot of work to maintain it. Congrats for cutting out caffiene! Maybe you can do one thing each day to make the next day better?

"one good choice leads to another" That was my mantra when I was off-meds and maintaining self-care. As soon as I stopped maintaining it, I fell apart and am back on meds.

Good luck. Good night. :)
