I think it would help me but my doctor is being a pain, he won't call me back and I don't know what to do. I have great insurance so we'll see what happens.

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

If you really want to be admitted to the hospital you can simply got to the ER.  Tell the staff there your symptoms and why you want to be admitted.  Based on what you tell them they will decide if your condition is critical enough to admit you or not.

What are your reasons for wanting to be admitted? Have you been in a psychiatric hospital before?  Honestly, I don't think they do that much for you in the hospital.  The most I can say is that they will keep you from harming yourself.  But if a person is suicidal then it is a valuable place to be. 
 
They give you meds, and have you go to group therapy.  Some of the activities are almost childish, like they might have you color a picture.  Generally you won't see a psychologist on a 1:1 basis, only in a group setting if they have a psychologist at all.  The psychiatrist will spend about 5-10 minutes a day with you.  Sometimes you get more individual help as an outpatient.  Even if you voluntarily go to the hospital, you lose your freedom until you get out.  Maybe other people have had a better hospital experience.  I hope that if you do go to the hospital that you have a good experience.

I'm going to a private hospital here... they do one on one treatment as the space is iimited as to how many they accept into the hospital. Its a really nice facility, VERY nice compared to where i was when i first got diagnosed in 2002. I was in a state hospital then and it was my worst nightmare. But i think this one will be better :)
