I am giving it a great deal of thought since I am not better. And yes I have all 3 components in place.

Question: What actually happens in the hospital? ?

I have this image that they will give meds to make me sleep for 3 days or make me a zombie.

Geeezzz I am afraid to go and afraid not to

Can I get some ideas of what should happen. PLEASE and thank you in advance.
Hello Shadowdove, sorry nearly missed your post! No, they will not just drug you up and turn you into a zombie. They will do a proper evaluation, possibly adjust your medication and offer some counseling. If you volunteer to go in, usually you are free to leave when you wish. If you feel you need to go in and feel unsafe, please go in.
