We got out of the hospital yesterday

we got out of the hospital yesterday. we asked dr. barry if we could go home. the suicidal thoughts and self harm urges had lessened. and even though monday wasnt a good day flashback wise, we felt ready to go home. dr. barry agreed with us. she didnt just discharge us with no support. she gave us the choice of coming to her outpatient clinic today but we said we wouldnt, we felt that we’d be ok enough until next week. but she has put the weekend service in place for us and they will do a home visit on both saturday and sunday. we would have seen dr. barry on Monday but we are going to the hospital with our mom so we cant see her then. so it will be next wednesday before we see her. but i think we’re going to be ok. we just have to focus on our mom now, and on her health and getting through this difficult time. dr. barry encouraged me not to catastrophize, which I am trying very hard not to do. she made one change to my meds, she added some extra lyrica in the morning to help with anxiety. so now I am taking 300 MG at night and 150 MG in the morning. she apparently did it last friday after I was admitted but I didnt know. she probably did tell me then but I was so dissociated that I dont remember. there was a change over of junior doctors this week and I met the two new doctors who are on dr. barrys team. It makes no difference to me, I wont be working with them, but when your in the hospital sometimes they come into your session and are present during it. so we’re home. and we are very glad. i was so exhausted last night that I literally fell into bed and slet for hours. Nitro isnt with us yet but he’ll be being dropped to us this morning. It was too late yesterday by the time we got home to have someone collect him and drop him to us. Thanks for all of your support while we were in patient. It really meant a lot to us

      1. just remember you are in the present and NOT in the past. What happened happened and it’s now over. You no longer live that life. You live with Nitro and he is a good doggie. Use him wisely. I am sure he misses you
