So after talking to the social worker in IOP last week, she asked me to talk to the psychiatrist there and he suggested a hospital stay. So he pink slipped me to get me directly admitted to the inpatient unit. I just today got home. The inpatient psychiatrist wants me to continue with IOP but I’ve been through IOP 3 times already and I feel I’ve gotten as much out of it as I can and it’s just not helping anymore. I’ve heard everything they say or teach at least four times. So no I’m home and still leashed to the house. Mom is going to buy a lock box to keep my meds in cause I figured out how to unlock her bedroom door with a butter knife. The dr took my off Zyprexa and switched to Abilify so hopefully that will help me stop gaining weight
Hello all! New member here and I am hoping to gain some advice as to what I may be able to do to lessen this anxiety I am experiencing. I aplogise for the longish post but I really do want to give a short over view of what is happening. I am the oldest of 3 girls and I have come from a violent background growing up and I have always played the peace maker. Fast forward to our adult years...
I feel so overwhelmed by my anxiety sometimes. It makes me overthink simple situations, simple texts and communication. Can somebody help me use some strategies to combat my anxiety please!!!
