If the unit is in the same hospital you won't have to worry about someone wanting to know where or how long you are going because they don't let you go anywhere unless it is scheduled and they go with you. You can't hide there, usually they also have cameras on the wall all over the place. Maybe it's not the same where you live but that's how it is here in PA.

Right now I am taking Wellebutrin and Diazepam. At one time my Psychiatrist had me on 6 different meds at the same time. I couldn't stop shaking and I had trouble doing anything. Before you consent to hospitalization you should check it out by going there or talking to you Dr. about the rules. I think a person knows when they have to be hospitalized if they are a threat to themselves or others, or cannot get their depression under control any other way.

This is Kitt and I am familiar with DID as I had a patient that had this diagonosis.

Have you and your therapist identified if your disorder was caused by childhood trauma?

Therapy is the treatment of choice for this disorder and use of AD's and some of the anti-anxiety meds if needed.

Just wanted you to know that there are some of us that do know the problems you are dealing with and please continue therapy. Hugs to you.

Hey Kitt thanks for the encouagement. Yes my DID was caused by childhood se--al abuse by my dad. The depression is always there I think it is a brain thing it runs in the family. My therapist is excellent but I feel like I have been in therapy forever. Hugs to you too.
