A little bit surreal. The first time I entered those doors was 14 years ago—I was just 16 and hiding under a very thin white blanket while seated in a wheelchair. My parents escorted through Psych Ward - Mental Patients LP doors. Now, you may be wondering why I Kill-A-Head - Trick Daddy - Based On A True Story under a blanket.
I was Psych Ward - Mental Patients LP out of my mind, and rightfully so. Jesus Christ! On the day I was admitted, I remember waiting in the ER for what seemed like hours, beforehand.
When I arrived, there was a whole new team of medical personnel wanting to see who was underneath the blanket. After hearing my Mom prompt me, I braved the new place and shyly stood up on my feet.
A friendly aide greeted me. You must be Katie. Here are a few things to expect in the psych ward, based on my experience at 16 and again at 24, that I would have appreciated knowing in advance. But Psych Ward - Mental Patients LP can be sure the staff will keep you on schedule.
You are expected to go to bed at a reasonable hour, and sleep for at least 8 hours. There is order to the day. After lunch, more of the same activities follow until a break for dinner which is often followed by visitor hours, movie time and lights out.
At least once a week I would see the doctor. Maybe not as often as I wanted, but at least as often as he could see me. I recommend being as honest and transparent as possible with the doctor. They are there to help you. In the adult ward I went to, the state of Florida had a law that allowed the patients who had voluntarily admitted themselves to petition the hospital administration in a court of law within the hospital to review and possibly repeal their case for earlier release.
I recommend visiting the Treatment Advocacy Center website for more information on laws concerning admission and release. They monitor the 46 United States that abide by a common set of laws for the treatment of patients and score them in their efficiency to abide by those laws.
Also, if you were involuntarily committed, there are laws Psych Ward - Mental Patients LP keep you monitored and unable to be discharged for the first 72 hours three days. Take one of our 2-minute mental health quizzes to see if you could benefit from further diagnosis and treatment.
Try to keep your distance physically and emotionally from people who you think may have the potential to be violent. Also, remember that many people in the psych ward may just like you and you may even find a friend or two during your time there. I created a lifelong friendship at the psychiatric ward.
They draw your blood upon admission. They also take your vitals regularly, usually morning and evening, but at least once a day. The first one had no pictures on the walls, and the second had about 3 abstract paintings, and 2 illustrations that reminded me of the Silence Of The Lambs movie poster eerie, I know. Another adult ward I stayed in had vaulted ceilings with large photos of beautiful locations around the world.
Honestly, all of the beds I had slept on were pretty stiff. They had plywood frames and no headboards, with a couple inches of mattress padding. But the sheets and linens were cleaned regularly, thankfully. I do know that some people were out the next day. And some people stay longer. I was there for 3 weeks. Some people stay a few months. Their input in part Hohe Tannen - Ronny - Du, Du Liegst Mir Im Herzen the length of treatment at the facility.
When I was in the juvenile ward, we wore scrubs. In the adult ward, we wore casual, comfortable everyday clothing. They confiscate any belts, hoodie strings, shoestrings and the like so as to take away anything that may pose a safety risk. This may vary from place to place, but there was always a recreation time to either interact with others in a gym or outside in the enclosed courtyard.
Take advantage of the physical activities, your brain needs it as much as your body. And you may end up passing on it during times you want to be alone to think or relax.
It may be best that once in a while, during times that the patients congregate in a group, you may want to go to your room to rest, away from the noise and commotion. There were days it was hard for me to handle the day-to-day activities in my mental illness, and an even greater a struggle to deal with a blaring movie on TV or a crowd of people talking loudly waiting for their meds in the dayroom. Permit yourself to take breaks from the anxiety-inducing activities, know and identify your triggers, and Yadélou - Castafiore Bazooka - Au Cabaret Des Illusions Perdues coping skills.
In either case, know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I would encourage you to seek professional help when deciphering whether or not you should be admitted to a psychiatric unit. I know I received the help I could not have gotten elsewhere had I not been committed. In the end, my mental health benefitted greatly from it. For a wider breadth of understanding about hospitalizations and what questions to ask, I recommend reading the information on Psych Ward - Mental Patients LP hospitalization on the Mental Health America website.
