I've seen more than a few people lately posting about going to the hospital. I have been toying with the idea for quite some time. I guess my question is whether I'm "bad enough" to justify inpatient care. I'm addicted to alcohol although not to the point where my life would be in danger from withdrawal - it just sux. I'm addicted to benzos but my pdoc just changed my prescription from xanax to klonopin for anxiety. Its helping some but I'd like to take about twice as much as I'm prescribed. I'm supplementing with alcohol -bad. I'm not manic anymore. I'm not suicidal. I would just really like to take a break from life. Would a short hospitalization "snap me out of it" and improve my quality of life? I feel like I am just "existing". I don't enjoy anything - I just try to do what I have to do and seem to fail miserably at that. I want to smile when I get home and see my kids rather than think "geez, what am I going to feed them tonight." I want to take control of my finances rather than stick my head in the sand and make DH handle everything. I want to apply for a new job at work but I'm afraid I can't handle it. Maybe I should just go back to therapy but I don't know if I can get FMLA for that. I have almost no leave remaining from all the work I've missed. So what do you all think?
