Crisis Stabilization unit *Caution: TRIGGER??*
I've rejoined the group because I really need some help. Last Friday night I tried to commit suicide by ODing on my wellbutrin and copious amounts of alcohol. I was put in the ER by my MIL for about 5 hours then put into the ICU for two days under a 1013 order (suicide watch, basically you are in custody of the state for 72 hours and can't do an AMA as I found out). They then sent me to a crisis stabilization unit (CSU) up until today when I was released.
Well since I've gotten out my triggers are still here, the stress is still here, all my problems are still here. I feel quite a bit better but my problems are still here. I'm still feeling kind of down (not near as bad as when I was admitted to the ER). I just feel so fragile.
I was wondering how you ladies cope with the everyday stressors and triggers? I just feel so overwhelmed and like I need someone to fix everything for me because I feel like I can't. I don't know why I posted this it just helps to have people that understand talk to me. My DH doesn't really get it cause he's does not have mental illness or anything. I just feel like I need support.
Anyone with any advice, kind words, comments, anything helpful is welcome to respond. I just don't want to feel alone in this!
Also my diagnosis is Bi-polar and BPD. TYIA ladies!
