Hospital or Not?

My therapist is talking with my doctor to see if they think I need to be admitted. I am doing my best to cool my jets, but I have been manic for awhile right now. I told then I was safe and because my daughter is living with me they cut me a little slack. I know I need to sleep and not spend any money but it is so hard! I DO NOT WANT TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL!!!!. I also got into trouble about my eating patterns. I am really trying. I work out to burn off the energy form the mania. I guess I'm not even doing THAT right. Gee wheeze what am suppose to do? Frustrated but not giving up.

Take care of yourself, Wanda. Whatever that means for you. I completely understand not wanting to go to the hospital, though. I am in the same boat.

Wishing you well,
NOS

Have you been to the hospital before? Do you have insurance? Maybe it is worth a shot - get all meds taken care of at once! I wish you the best.

If you can see a steady (if slow) improvement in your mood and abilities, then I would ask the doctors if they cold just tweek your meds. If not, maybe go to the hospital, but with a set date for release. Peace.

I had worked with a manic patient during my one of my rotations and at first, I didn't understand as I was only a student. But going through that process with her as our class visited more, I learned so much from her and learned it wasn't easy.

May God guide you and always give you discernment. I pray for His healing over you. Take care.

Hi there sweet,

I hope you will find your balance, and not giving up is a great attitude to have...

I have to take Seroquel as my sleeping pill at night, and when I skip it, I feel like my world is full of fear, and terror...

I have a tag, and an award for you, so Click on this link when you have time to take your award
Love,

Jesse

Sometimes it does feel like we can't do anything right. I'm actually a huge advocate of exercise although I used to do it to extremes. My sciatica won't let me work out on treadmills, ellipticals and exercise bikes for up to 5 hours at a time any more. These days I have to take it to the therapy pool a lot of the time. As someone with an eating disorder myself, I actually tend to be more concerned when people show signs of having an obsession with controlling what they eat. I hope you are able to talk to someone about it and don't have to be admitted. I go to great lengths to avoid ever being admitted. It happened once, when I was 16. I was treated like shit and vowed never to let anyone put me in that position again.

Wanda I am praying God will guide you in to doing what you should do for your own sanity and health. -Maybe you NEED to go to the hospital for awhile. None of us want to go in the hospital, Sweetie--but if you're at a place--a bad place--it may be the right move for you. I'm praying!
