Out of hospital again - and happy to get out!

I’m back at home again :smiley: I went to a general hospital where I was treated not under the best of conditions. There was no bed for me, the psych ward was full and I wasn’t sent to the state psych hospital . I had to sleep on an bloody armchair for three nights and all they did was give me Valium five times a day to make me half dead. Of course the voices had no space because I was so drugged. No med change, but I was told again that I has schizophrenia with borderline personality traits. All in al it was a very frustrating seventh hospitalisation. Basically it was just a 72 hour psychiatric evaluation (or whatever you call it). I see my proper pdoc on the 29th January and the general hospital’s pdoc on the 18th or so, so I hope my med dose kicks in. I would have been asked to be transferred to Valkenberg (my local psych hosp) but my husband was alone at home and needed me, so its better to get treatment from home. I’m still so tired from all that bloody Valium they stuffed down my throat. I’ve certainly had better hospitalisations!

Welcome back. Take it slow for awhile but sort of keep busy. It’s all baby steps to recovery.

Welcome back home! That sounds rough what you’ve been through, could you not refuse the valium? Hope you all the best!
