  1. I was a inpatient in a psychiatric unit for adolescents for four months, and I've been out for just over three, and I'm not going to lie, I miss it so much. Part of me wants a normal life, a house, a job and a family, but part of me wants to go back, to being able to scream and shout and cry and get restrained and knowing that I couldn't hurt myself even if I wanted to, because that's easier than admitting I actually don't want to hurt myself, even though I do want to hurt myself. I guess my question is does anyone else miss being an inpatient?
  2. Feelings like those are awfully hard, and while I don't have bipolar I can imagine it's horrible. Something I try to do when I feel like giving up is to think of times when I felt content, and tell myself that if I keep holding on I can experience those positive feelings again. I even started a scrapbook so I can physically look through at happier times, it might be worth trying? Making it might help take your mind of how your feeling? X
  3. Thank you for your replies, it helps to know I'm not just being irrational about how he treated me. I'm going to try to go to the support group, it's very scary but like you guys said, I deserve to recover just as much as they do. I'm just going to have to keep telling myself that. Thank you again, it feels good to have got that off my chest.
  4. Thank you very much for your reply! At the moment there is no other sources of support, other than an eating disorder group. I want to go but I'm very nervous in case my eating disorder isn't 'legitimate' enough. Stupid I know. The only other option is the crisis team, but that is very scary.
  5. Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, I hope I don't do anything wrong! I'm just posting to see what everyone else thinks of the situation I'm in at the moment, it may turn into a bit of a long rant, so I'm sorry in advanced. Basically, I was in an adolescent psychiatric unit for four months, with the diagnosis of bpd and bulimia (originally anorexia b/p) and was discharged because I was turning 18 in a few weeks, and everyone agreed it would be a bad idea to send me to an adult unit. After being discharged, I was doing well, still struggling but really, really, trying. Then I met my adult mhs CPN, who was awful. After 10 minutes he said I 'should try to distance myself from services', that I 'must be doing okay because i dressed well and had make up on' and my eating disorder, was fine because I was a 'healthy weight'. The next session, I was 10 minutes late as I got lost, and he left, without even phoning me. When I complained, I was put back on the waiting list. So now, three months after being discharged from hospital, I have no one. I guess I just wanted to see if anyone else thought I was unfairly treated?
