Currently In Respite Care

So after having to see my psychiatrist I have been placed in a respite care facility so I can be monitored I guess and have access to somebody 24/7. The facility itself is an old motel, the main building were I am located has four rooms and around this main building are a number of self contained units. The place has a homely feel and not a hospital feel which is nice, as I could have easily ended up in the hospital.

This place also give me my medications. My psychiatrist has added lorazepam to my list of medicines while I am here. This medication is supposed to sedate me and help me remain calm and not have suicidal thoughts. This is all new to me and I am pretty scared even though I am putting on a happy face. Deep inside I am rotting away.

But when you hit rock bottom am sure the only way is up.

  1. You’re going to get through this. Let your body accept the sedation and relaxation. Rest, for today is not for fighting. Wishing you all the best. Take care!
