My ptsd in particular has been bonkers lately. Ive been majorly depressed and making horrible choices. My whole state is on divert...no available beeds for behavioral health paitients and ive been sent home five times from the hosptial seeking treatment. Ive had two hours of sleep in the past day and a half only to be woken up by a nightmare. Im unbmedicaided because my therapist wants me stabilazed on my meds and therfore i must be hospitalized. I tried reaching out to friends who only told me its in my head and people deal with much worse than I and I just need to think differently and I am not trying hard enough. I feel as though Iam. I am out of options. Please help.

I am so sorry you are suffering like this. During my first year of college I only slept between two to four hours a night, if I slept at all. I also suffered from horrendous nightmares and would wake frequently, even when I did sleep. I know what kind of hell you are going through. Your friends who dismiss your suffering are not being real friends to you, which must make your situation doubly painful. I hope you get some help soon. Hang in there.

Hello

your situation sounds similar to mine

except there ARE no MH beds where I live (Australia)

You're on your own in the Community to live, die, whatever

Its terrible - but on the other hand, it FORCES folk like me into finding out How To Cope

For example I now know to use water to disrupt the cycles, cleaning as therapy, exercise as therapy, importance of Self Care

Self Care is the key - its the First thing to go and the First sign of Recovery

I feel for you so much I really do

But hospital isn't an option at all for a large number of folks

So you're not alone

we are all out here struggling with bad doctors worse medication

Not much help here im afraid

But you are NOT alone x

Best

Your not alone with your battle with depression.

Talking on here may help as people are here to help others who are currently or have suffered with anxiety and depression, as well has many more health issues.

I myself have only had anxiety and panic attacks for 2 an half years but within that time I've spoke to people who have or are going through the same. It took time but it does help. The medication does help but talking to people that understand helps more and I find it one the best treatments to over come my bad spells.

Hang in there.
