I got out of the hospital on Saturday am trying to figure it out. It was a good hospital stay, things are so structured there. I am now at home recuperating. Mental illness sucks! I am thinking of sharing my disorder at my work. I work in the mental health field so there is definite fear of stigma but I feel like no longer hiding behind this blog and being free. My family disagrees with this decision. Any thoughts on this is appreciated. I would love to hear stories of others who have made this big jump of faith into the unknown.
I don’t feel ready to work again and have 2 weeks off so that is good.
Thank you for being patient with me while I took a needed break from blogging. I just got out of the hospital today after severe depression set in with suicidal ideation. Medication and excercise have been key to my recovery along with prayer and awesome doctors! I am also thinking about “coming out” at my workplace with my diagnosis. I have heard this can be exhilarating! But we shall not make any hasty decisions in this regard. Well, it has been a long but good day. I wish you all the very best. This disorder can kick one in the ass. I will write more soon about my hospital experience.
