Hi Kiya, The title of your post caught my attention. I'm sorry you have to go IP so often. I know what you mean by being triggered so easily.

Here where I live there is something called 'respite care.' It's a safe place with lots of comfortable chairs and anyone who is feeling like they are not safe at home but don't want to go IP can access the respite center. People can stay up to 23 hours and it's open 24/7. There are doctors and therapists on site and it's all free of charge. It's a great program & I wish it was available in more locations.

Anyway, I'm just sending you good thoughts and I hope you're doing okay.

I'm better- but I changed my HRT (estrogen) level w/o permission. I think it broke me out of the severe depression. I can't get the medical community to believe me, tho. I saw them today and they really discouraged me from raising the HRT (I decided to pretend to ask permission rather than admit I'd done it).
They seemed disappointed in me that I didn't take their word for it, but did acknowledge that each body is different and that if I really feel I need to, I can change it.
I learned today that surgical menopause HRT aftercare is just as much a shot in the dark as is psychiatry. Fun.

There is a 23 hour place much like respite, but instead of being free, it is psych ER. One will be evaluated and then either admitted, moved somewhere else to be admitted, or allowed to leave, depending.
I felt shame last time I went when the LCSW said "we're getting to know you rather well" and the dr said simply "you're back".
I couldn't bear going in a 4th time this calendar year :'(

For me this translates to "I'm on my own". I have to figure it out. I have to hide my true state of being if I'm unwell. My p nurse wants to try TMS (an electrified magnet placed against the head at certain points of the brain; one step down from ECT).
Back to pretending I'm normal when I have to.
Thankfully for now, I am stable.
Thanks all
Hugs

Also one thing that helped was that my therapists checked in with me daily. Some days several times. That in itself can be a lifesaver.

I'm so sorry you're experiencing having to fake "wellness" in an effort to avoid hospitalization. I know the feeling and it can be very lonely and isolating.

I am glad you received support while staying out of the hospital. Glad you are doing better right now.
