Anyone been in a STATE hospital?

Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with being in a state hospital and what was it like?

I have schizophrenia and have been in short term psychiatric hospitals, which costs a ton of money for each stay (which is usually no longer than a week)
. I've become quite resistant to taking my medication because i cannot seem to get use to life without my symptoms (hearing voices, delusions, etc.) i've come to ...

Suicide attempt....

Just a word of advice...unless you have an older car without emissions control, don't try to kill yourself by carbon monoxide poisoning. It doesn't work!! You just start breathing REALLY hard and feel like you are losing your breath, like running a marathon. It sucks!!

Online Therapy

Hey all!

Last night right before I fell asleep, I briefly thought about the topic of online therapy. Does anyone have any first-hand experience? I was maybe thinking of setting something up sometime in the future, but I'm not really sure. Any advice or comment would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks,
Mr. Yowler

I'll be brief and to the point. There is a serious problem. Too many people's posts go unaswered. How can we expect others to help us if we do not try to do the same for them? Please, do not let any posts go unanswered. These people are lost and confused, and you have no idea what a response (or even a few for that matter) could do, as far as bringing the person up ...

When that happens I usually self harm. My therapist says it will take up to four weeks for ...

not sure what to do

Had an appointment with my psychiatrist today. He's now decided that I have a cyclothymic personality and possible have borderline personality disorder. He sent me away to read up on things and I've just been doing that. The stuff about BPD is nasty...makes me feel like a terrible person. a lot of it applies to me and some of the stuff I didn't my fiance agreed with. I thought knowing what was wrong with me ...
