Mental Hospital

I feel like I am losing my mind. I can barely make a decision. Any decision. I just want so badly for this to go away. I feel like I need to be in the hospital, but having never been there, I'm not even sure they really help. I would hate to risk having a huge bill to pay not to mention being out of work and not be any better when I get out.

This too shall pass is my mantra, and it has been for years and years but I am getting so tired. I can't imagine ANOTHER 16 years of this.

I did not find the hospital helpful at all the one time I was forced to go. In my mind it was comparable to prison. Hopefully the feelings will pass soon.

I hope you get the help you need.

There is a big difference between going to a hospital because YOU feel like you need to go and being involuntarily committed. I'm not advocating going vs. not-going, just saying that sometimes the best judge of what is best for you is YOU (though not always). I can't answer the question of the expense for you, but I think there is something to be said for following your gut in situations like this. If YOU feel like you need to be in a hospital to get help, it might be wise to listen to yourself.

I put myself there. I did not find it a prison or any such thing at all. I felt a HUGE sense of relief to be there. I could just be what I was- very very ill and not have to try to be anything but that any longer. It was their job to worry bout it now instead of mine...... After several days I felt much better and went home. The buffet was good too LOL
