I have made a topic on here regarding the hospital but no one has answered to it. That may be a good thing, considering then that many of you haven't been to a psychiatric ward? =P
 
Well since this monday I have been in the worst depression episode of my life. Sunday night I was VERY manic but I could tell I was going to crash the next day. And I did. I haven't been able to eat anything for three days (My gag reflex is so bad for some reason, I can barely brush my teeth either or drink water) and I can't get myself up to do anything. Stereotypical.
 
But I am very afraid of leaving myself alone. My parents have helped me through this since monday but I know still that there are times I am going to have to be alone by myself. I think this is the need for my first time in the hospital, but my doctor doesn't think I need it. What should I do? Also, my parents do not have insurance and it would be very hard to pay for it. Any other alternatives that may be cheeper in price?
 
Thanks much,
-Allie

Hey Allie - do you have a friend that can stay with you or that you can stay with? Why does your doc think you don't need it, has he seen you like this? Hang in there and keep us posted..

Hi Allie-

I've been in a psych ward twice. The first time was good, the second I DID NOT want to be there and so in wasn't helpful. Do you know why your Dr. doesn't think that's where you need to be? Has he explained things in detail for you? I have no suggestions that are cheaper other than make sure you're not alone, make sure you don't have easy access to your meds if you feel you might hurt yourself and try and hang in there. There are relaxation techniques that I do that sometimes help and sometimes don't. I'm a rapid cycler also and it sucks when one minute you're alright and three of four hours later, you're in a totally different place.

Let us know how you're doing. You have friends here.


Take Care,
