You know when things get really bad and you have to be admitted to the hospital I am amazed at the stigma that being mentally ill has ,especially to adults in the hospitals,especially in the E.R..Most times when I have to be admitted its because I emotionally exhaust myself and I can't fight my anxiety anymore.The last time I went to the E.R.first and i had been crying for three days. I was going through a med. change and it wasn't going well.I wasn't being monitored so there was no one to call.I waited and waited while they addressed all the physical issues,they called in the psychiatrist on call she met me up on the ward but three or four hours had past and no gave me anything to help calm me down. When my husband and I walked into the room he sat down and she told him to leave[very nasty].Then she started on me ,I could not believe what was happening.She'd ask me questions and when I'd go to answer her she would throw her hand up in my face and say I didn't make sense.I eventually got up and told her if she couldn't speak to me properly I was going home[still crying].She jumped up and told me she was going to commit me[rubber room]. I sat down she told me to go home and be a responsible parent to my children and go to therapy for my husband,I left more upset then ever terrified to come back but my husband made me.I was admitted and spent two day s getting one fifth of an ativan to help me settle and naturally she spread the word about my so called behavior.I'll kill myself before she ever get her claws in me again.She used her profession to abuse a patient in need.
