Almost 2 weeks after my last hospital stay, I was back there again.  This time is was through a situation that way way out of hands.  See I had a bad card accident on New Year's Day, I know that sucks.  But to make matters worse not only do I  say in reg part of the hospital, but they nmade me saty in the psych ward as well.  I guess it was due to my history and the consent of my Pdoc (not me, or my family) that this desicion was made.  I am still pissed about it, I am mentally feeling very stable, but psyshically could use a step or two.  I guess this time around it really didn't benefit me as it would have in the past.
~But at least I am now at home trying to get back to my daily routine, whatever that is.
Hope you are having a Wonderful New Year so far!

This is one of the problems of bipolar...you don't get NO respect for other things going wrong with you. I mean, if you had gone into the ER from the accident and been spouting every nasty word you could think of, threatening to slit your wrists or something...well okay, the psych ward is a reasonable decision. I suspect that your doctor thought your car accident was on purpose to try to end your life. That is an ASSumption from things not in evidence, at least not from what you have posted, it isn't.

I think doctors forget, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...well I dunno, it's a duck? They seem to think that it could be a horse.

I know these things altogether too well.

Hey if the worst has happened at the beginning instead of the end of the year i'll take it.  (I guess I am realizing how close to death I was not 2 weeks ago-but all I walked away it a broken collar-bone which is miserable and a few cuts and bruises - **considering it could have been worse)
I know it sounds like a bit of a complain, but now that my mom has gotten to know a bit more about my life and struggles with my illness or as she would call it disorder she has been too clingy.  I guess she realized how close she came to losing me, and now i feel suffocated.
I guess I just needed to vent a little, because I didn't know how to handle the new her.
I am grateful at a new chance in life, and am very thankful for being here today.  I didn't want you to think that I am neglecting it one bit.
I have been given yet another chance to live, and I want to make this one count.  No matter what.

My doctor is saying the same thing.. well kind of.

I believe that I am in need to go to the hospital. I knew when I was even afraid of leaving myself alone. But my pdoc didn't think it was necessary? She said that the only way they would admit you is if you were a threat to yourself or others.

I think pdocs should listen to their patients a little more and look at what they need. A lot of times, BP people that are in control and want to get better will put themselves in the hospital if they think they are in danger. If there are people out there that aren't like that, the pdoc should already know and be aware of that.

Ugh. Some people's kids. Hang in there Olivia!
