Hi everyone--
i just became a member of this site. Funny thing is I was reading your posts for a wk. Then I had one of my "spells" and ended up in the er for hurting myself and ended up with 12 stitches...Anyways...They petitioned me to the local mental health hospital where I stayed for 3 nights. I must say it was an interesting experience. I was on a unit intended for people suffering from ed (eating disorders) and sirs (self injury recovery services). It was almost like being back in elementary school..Elementary school for crazies. I felt like I was in a crazy house, I guess essentially I was. However, it must have been the most calming, therepeutic three days of my life. I since then decided to join. I feel that these forums are the closest thing to the comfort I felt there. They are the only place where I feel I am not alone with my disorders. I am 23 and part of my release required that I set up an appt with both a phsychiatrist and therapist which I have done. I would love to hear from some of the regulars on this site as I will be posting often and hope to get to know some of you. I am always open to suggestions for coping and will be happy to share my experiences as well as suggestions and new information I gain through my therapy...Oh yeah...Currently I take 30 mg of prozac a day to treat my depression.
