Never give up, you will get through this rough time. I am sorry for the battle with depression you are in right now.
Perhaps it sounds strange right now but even after all these years it may be good to be rid of this person in your life who seems to have turned toxic and is causing you severe sadness.
I have not been in a hospital but I am glad for the person that did come to you and sat with you after the nurse was so stern with you.
I do not believe that you have brought any of this on yourself, you have depression, you have an illness............lets help you get through this tough time.
ive stayed in pysch hospitals (voluntarily) and have noticed there are 2 distinct types of mental health nurses. you either get the 'no nonsense, ive seen it all nurse ratchett' types who make you feel like your wasting their time, or you get the genuinely caring, supportive ones who have a sense of humour, dont patronise you or make you feel weak and pathetic the way the other type can do. thats just been my experience. i think alot of pysch nurses are quite hardened because of what they deal with on a daily basis, but at the same time, that is no excuse for being less than caring.
i pray your situation improves soon. hang in there,
