yuck. I got home on Monday after almost another week in the hospital. I'm very tired and irritated. I didn't want to go in the first place, but this ER doc blue slipped me and forced me to go. He was a very short little man and I told him he was suffering from "little man" syndrome, throwing his weight around trying to show he was in control. I tried to refuse signing the paperwork and that was a no go too. So off I went. I got nothing from the stay. We rearranged some of my meds and that was a benefit I guess. I also met a new friend. Those were the only two postives that came from this stay. Oh well. I'm home now.

Hi Athmlldy411-

I was in a neuropsychiatric hospital. I don't know if I'm allowed to say why I went in. It might be against the forum rules. Needless to say, I was unstable, very angry, hateful, depressed and needed to have my meds adjusted because they weren't working at all. I'm now on Prozac and weaning off the cymbalta and geodon. That will be good if it works because it will save me money on perscriptions. I just pray that this combo works. I'm very tired of fighting this bipolar stuff and the anxiety and depression. If this doesn't work, I'm asking about ECT treatments. Cross your fingers for me. 


Take Care,
               Chelle

im sorry if this offends you seechell, but as you said youtrself, you comments were depressed,hateful, mean, very whiney, and rude, i can assume why you were in the hospital, and aside from that, if the doctor thinks you needd to be in there, then he did. and maybe you did, it sounds like you admit you have problems that needed help, i dont think you should have made fun of him that is totally innapropriate. if you truley feel you shouldnt have been there, you should have acted respectfully, and like an adult. the doctor didnt really do anything that deserved being insulted like that, from what you said.
 Please NO flaming of members ..........
if it continues on this tone I will ask for thread to be locked
Thanks for your co operation

Thanks for all the positive comments. It's nice to know that I have friends who understand what I'm going through. And it's nice to know I was missed! I love you guys.

I was venting as we all need to do sometimes. I was out of control at the ER and I know it. I just couldn't calm myself down. When I get that way, things just come out of my mouth. I have bipolar, anxiety and depression and was feeling very emotional. If you can't say something positive and supportive,  

 

Hun I know you are upset please dont be flaming other members either okay

I edited the commments about you and I dont think they were appropriate either

I know you are trying

* I dont want to have thread locked but the Administrator strictly states no flaming of members okay ...Thanks .......

BTW, I'm trying to stay positive. This is my third hospital stay in the last month and a half and have been to the ER 4 times in the same amount of time. I just need to learn how to apply my coping skills I learned at UNI. I hope this new combo works. We're adding a new one and weaning off three. Good for the pocket book. I'm just asking for a bit of encouragement and advise. Thanks to those who understand that. I start getting down on myself and don't need others to hop on the bandwagon. You know who you are.

Hi there seechell
You really have been through a rough time lately..but I can see you are gonna get through this..you didn't have a fab time in hospital but you looked and found 'positives' which is a good sign in itself :) shows that you are using good skills to cope :)
Have a little faith in yourself.
What do you do all day now you are home? Do you have friends and family around you?

Take good care.

I'm going to join a water aerobics class, try and go for walks when the weather is decent and do some art therapy that I learned at UNI. I'm definately not an artist, it is composed of stick men, but I like to just blend colors together with watercolors or chalk. It relieves some of the stress. I've already cleaned my house. There are also classes for bipolar and family classes that I plan on going to in January. I'm also plan on enrolling in college again spring semester. I hope I'm ready. I have a lot to make up because of my hospital stays. Anything to keep myself busy and not sit here, dwelling. That's what I do best, dwell on problems and then they become overwhelming.

Take Care,

Smiler-

What is color therapy? You've peaked my interest, if you don't mind sharing. I'm open to anything at this point, except critisism for what I'm dealing with. Not that YOU would do that, but someone did and it really upset me. Please, share.

Also, thanks again for all the positive comments, it really helps. Especially knowing that I have friends who are going through some of the same things and can relate. I'm trying to be strong. I feel better today than I have in 6 weeks or more. Yeah!

Hi seechell,

It sounds like you have been through so much lately, and you really do have a very postive attitude about starting new things. That is really an inspiration to others. I haven't been hospitalized, but I was close... and regular visits with my therapist helps me, yet I can't seem to find the confidence to start up new things like you are. That is so wonderful! I'm glad that they are trying to change up your meds and that it will be a savings. You might remember that my hubby was just diagnosed with A/S, and the doc told him swimming would be the best exercise (because no impact, which I'm sure would include the water arobics thing you are doing). Let me know how that's going. Hope all the new activities go well! ((((((Hugs))))))) and please know I'm sending positive thoughts your way! :-)
