Over the past month or so i have been slowly sliding down. My doc has tried drug alterations, i have been seeing my therapist, ect. I have come to the point where i am cutting myself as a release. I realized i can't stay like this, but i neeed help. Last night I went to the ER.. They wouldn't keep me, becasue even though i am cutting, i am not suicidal, even though i told them i wished i wouldn't wake up. I don't know what to do. My friends think i am nust. "Why can't you just pull out of it?", "Are you just trying to hide from real life?" is what i get. My doc hgave me two options: six weeks of therapy or hospitalization.

IDK - do you feel safe to stay alone? Do they adjust your meds at the outpatient program? Can you get off of work for either of them?

I think these are some things to consider.

I agree. You need to deal with which program will work best for you. I would ask your pdoc for their recommendation as to which program would be best.

I'm glad to hear you are being offered two programs. So sorry you are going thru such a hard time. The other two posters have given you a few good things to think about in chosing which program suits you best. I wish you wellness, glad you are posting, we are always here for you.
