It's only been a few days since I have been discharged from a day hospital and I'm finding myself increasingly anxious, depressed, and suicidal (not worth acting on though). I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. Was I too dependant on the day hospital? Was I there too long or having too much of a good time? I'm so confused. I want to go back, but i'm not going to for at least 3 months unless I have a major crisis. (I really hope that doesn't happen.) Any ideas? Thanx.

I've never been in your situation but what comes to mind is when I was in the hospital where I had a premature baby who died soon after birth. I didn't want to go home. I felt like I was in a cocoon. In addition to the adjustment of coming back home, I imagine you're missing some of the structure you had there. Is there a way you can set up some kind of structure at home now? Is there anybody at the hospital you can call to touch base and help you adjust?

The problem is not a lack of structure, I don't think. I'm teaching during the day. So I'm just stuck wondering. Thanx for the reply.

It's ALWAYS hard transitioning out of a higher level of care. I think one does miss the structure and support. Working is a whole different kind of structure---it is responsibility. In program, you are taken care of and having your needs met. At work (teaching), you are having to meet the needs of others. I know it was (and continues to be!) a big challenge for me!! Keep reaching out to your support system (therapist, etc) during the transition....and be gentle with yourself while you adjust. It's normal.
good luck!!

i felt the same way when i left the hospital all the times i've been there. even though hospitals and day treatment places arent easy places to be, when it comes down to it, theyre safe. people help take care of you and u dont really need to deal with life as much.
life is hard, very very hard and dealing with it on your own is the hardest.
