Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way. It means the world to me. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the amazing support I have had throughout my entire journey.
Today I drove by the Comfort Inn. Not just any Comfort Inn but the one I used to run to when things got to be too much at home. I would charge the room to my personal credit card so my ex husband wouldn't know where I was. I haven't driven directly past it in years. Today I drove past it and just smiled that I found the courage and the strength to leave the miserable abusive situation I was in at that time. With the exception of the occasional flash back he has no hold left on me and never will. That is something to smile about and be proud of.
A quick update on how I'm doing...
The depression has subsided but the hypomania that was present has continued and really worsened over the last couple of days. I called my new doctor who I wasn't supposed to have an appointment with until next month and he squeezed me in tomorrow. Im so grateful to him for that. I didn't want to go back to my current doctor. I'm sorry I haven't written part 3 of my hospitalization. I'm uncomfortable and unable to concentrate. I have faith that Dr. Haerian will make a helpful medication change!
The good news is I'll be writing an article about my hospitalization for the next NAMI Maryland quartley newsletter! Yay!
