Preparing for Hospitalization

I have been suffering from major depression for over a year and a half now... The longest I have ever been dark. Not really looking forward to the hospital stay but I know I cannot continue to wear the mask of normalcy for others comfort and/or expectations of me. I hope this time things will be different for me.

Best wishes- I hope the docs can help get your Meds straight and that you know light again soon! Don't forget- no shoestrings or anything with a drawstring at all... Be safe, remember you are there for you, so try not to get sucked into everyone else's drama and problems- like I often used to do. Be your own advocate and don take any mistreatment. Take advantage of all groups- even if u don't feel like moving! Light and peace to you.
