    Driven to Hospitalization by Workplace Abuse #workplacebullying , #Depression , #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder , #PsychiatricHospital

    I reported sexual discrimination and harassment roughly two years ago. Since then I’ve been constantly retaliated against. My abuser continues buoyed by the face that I, not him, will be punished. My mental health is shattered. I will be hospitalized probably Monday.

    Whatever you do, do not believe the mandatory training that says that you should report things. No matter how badly abused you are. If you do, they will destroy you utterly. As Nikita Gill wrote, “There is no justice in this world.”

    One year post mental hospital stay

    One year ago, I was escorted by police to a mental health hospital. At the time I was not told or understood what was going on. When I was brought in and finally realized where I was, I was scared and confused. While I knew it was for my own safety for suicidal thoughts I still was angry and frustrated. I was 1,500 miles from friends and family on temporary reassignment for work. Luckily it was only a 24 hour stay and while a ways away I had friends who came along side me afterwards with calls and texts. My boss was also super supportive letting have time off and work then with me returning to work.

    Since then I have had two changes in meds and I still have bad days but since moving back, getting on right meds things have been on the up and up. However some nights or days I have nightmares or panic attacks of having police show up and being locked in an area scared and confused. They are less now than they used to be, but some days they really hit and make me wonder I have been fighting these demons in different forms for 15 years will they ever stop

    First time posting, second time out of the psych hospital

    Hi all, first time poster here. Just got out of a 5 day stay at Laurelwood psychiatric hospital in Gainesville Ga. Much better than my first hospitalization at Summit Ridge in Lawrenceville Ga. I went in for severe depression and anxiety, I feel like this past year just beat the crap out of me. Looking for support and community to help facilitate my healing now that I’m home, and to support others in their journeys. Looking forward to communicating with anyone who is interested! #Depression #Anxiety #MentalHealth #PsychiatricHospital

    Distraction suggestions wanted #Depression #BipolarDisorder #PsychiatricHospital

    I am being admitted to a psych unit where i will be required to remain in my room until the COVID test comes back negative. This could take up to a week (or potentially longer) so I am packing my laptop (with movies), colouring book & notebook in an attempt to keep myself sane whilst in 'precautionary isolation'. Any suggestions of distration ideas/techniques, etc to help pass the time would be most appreciated❤

    Struggling to Accept My Mental Illness Consumed the first Decade of My Adult Life

    I’m not quite thirty and I haven’t been able to hold a job let alone pursue a career due to my mental health problems getting bad in high school and much worse upon graduating. I tried college but had to withdraw before the first semester ended. After that I was in and out of psych wards, treatment facilities, just wasting away. There was a span of time I isolated so much, I didn’t drive, I only went to medical and psych appointments, and had no friends. I was significantly overweight, using food, and sometimes substances (though sometimes I was even too anxious and depressed to put effort into going out to find, sounds crazy I know) to numb out.

    I eventually went to treatment in another state which really helped. I finally made friends, learned some independence, and sorta felt normal. When I got home I took a class at a community college, did really well but when the second semester came and I signed up for two classes, I crashed. Ended up back in the psych ward, and started ECTs which barely helped. Later started DBT which years later I’m still in and I feel like I’m so broken that I’ll never graduate even though I’ve not relapsed nor been hospitalized in over 2 years. I started ketamine infusions almost 2 years ago, I hate that my family foots the bill.

    I’m looking to try working again, I’m on disability so it’s tricky, to say the least. And I’m living with family since I can’t afford anything else but I’m so tired of it. It’s just embarrassing how much I depend on others and how much I have to learn that others learned at 18. I just feel so pathetic and I know that’s not helpful but it’s hard when I know others view me that way, and some people who do have some say/influence.

    It’s funny because as ashamed as I feel, it seems like I make a lot of excuses. I want to just “rip that bandaid off” and do everything that I’ve avoided or been unsure of, I just don’t know why I feel so stuck in the I “can’t” vs I “can”. Sorry this got so long, just needed to vent anonymously. Thanks to anyone who reads. #Depression #Bipolar2Disorder #Anxiety #SocialAnxiety #AvoidantPersonalityDisorder #MentalHealth #PsychWard #PsychiatricHospital #ElectroconvulsiveTherapy #Ketamineinfusions
