Hospitalization; Medical and Psychiastric
Well I guess the bubble popped. One moment things are generically stressful and life is bearable, the next moment I'm drinking too much and on my way to an six foot hole.

I recently went into the hospital last Wednesday because I was going to kill myself, started cutting again, and had violent thoughts. I was hoping to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital first but due to high blood sugar I ended staying in the medical ICU for nearly 48 hours where they diagnosed me with Type One Diabetes.

Then Friday they transfered me to the psychiatric hospital. Two days ago I have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and have been prescribed two extra medications.

It's been rough but I'm finally starting to calm down. So here are some positives to the situation:

1) Created some space between my wife and I to mentally heal.
2) Allowed my wife and I to really connect during visitations better that we had in the past two months.
3) My father and I are now on speaking terms. I sayed sorry and he offered to pay for my treatment.
4) My suicidal thoughts and violent thoughts are now becoming controllable.
5) This hospitalization is putting me on the right foot to stop drinking and smoking so much.
6) My diabetes diagnosis will help me eat better and loose more weight..and hopefully live longer.
7) Next week I will be admitted to an eight week dialectic behavioral therapy program to help me with my disorder.
8) My diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder well paint a better picture of what is going on with me and allow for better treatment.

I'll be out of the hospital on Saturday. Time to focus on discharge and coping techniques.

Good luck, man.

Glad you went to the hospital and got things taken care of. Thumbsup

Stick with what they prescribe and you'll be feeling a ton better.

I personally feel that asking for help, makes you stronger, rather than weaker.

It sounds like your on the right track El. Yes

I'm wishing you and your family nothing but the best.

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

remember fellow atheist, life is always worth living as long as you aren't like terminally ill and in pain. Behind every black cloud, is a rainbow

Having gone through some tough times myself (buried two kids and a wife who committed suicide)I always kept life in perspective....I knew somewhere, someone was going through much worse, and who was I to feel sorry for myself. The other day I caught myself whining about my right wrist and hand aching from arthritis flaring up after an especially harsh workout...then I remembered all the young men who came back from Iraq without limbs...I bet they would give anything to have a hand to "ache".

Perspective is a powerful tool, life is a wonderful thing, shake it off, square your shoulders and take one step, then another...then another...

best of luck Thumbsup

Holy crap, El - it's good they caught the Diabetes! Keep with the meds and follow all food intake instructions; that's a balancing act itself.

It's good you got an actual diagnosis and are under the proper care of a physician - continuing to work with them will speed recovery so you can continue to work on on your self, your life, and your relationships.

Take things slow and steady. Thumbsup

I have found that things are easier to deal with once they have a name put to them. Not knowing why you feel bad sucks because you don't know what to do or even if you can do anything. Glad you are getting the help you need.
