I just spent all night at the hospital and its been decided I'm going to do something called a Partial hospital program, anyone know what to expect?

Its like a day program, 8-3 for two weeks.
I can't leave without a therapist.

  • When I was thirteen I did a program like that at a mental hospital. It shouldn't be too awful. You'll learn that other people have just as big, if not worse, problems than you do.

  • Is it an inpatient program?
    I was in inpatient in several clinics for treatment of my anorexia and it was total hell. They would take all/most of my personal belongings away, especially phones & laptops and pretty much anything that lets you communicate with anyone outside the clinic. If I wouldn't eat they'd lock me up in a room or tie me to the bed and tube feed me & I'd only get my personal stuff as I'd make "progress". I wasn't even allowed to go outside for the first month or so at all & then this girl in the room next to mine passed away and they told us she had "gone home" but everyone knew they were lying because it had been so obvious that there was no saving her. The worst for me were the group sessions and the sessions with my parents there, because they try to force intimate details out of you in front of people that you are absolutely not comfortable with - although group sessions got better once I was used to them.
    I'd imagine it's probably a lot different if you're treated for depression or suicidal tendencies (although both still applied to me, too, as I was there), you might not be treated, quite as much like a seriously crazy person as you would if you were anorexic.

      And of course, don't forget about "Good Omens", where Gaiman and Terry Pratchett teamed up to write a classic.

  • I haven't, but I think from what I know of you that this is a step in the right direction. Good luck.

  • I've only been fully inpatient, for two weeks. I didn't like the feeling of being locked up (even though it was so easy to escape that we would joke about it), so that's a definite plus for what you're doing.

    What I found most helpful about the experience was probably the sense of camaraderie that came from being with other people who were suffering just as bad as I was.

      I can't put into words how much I admire you. This programme may just be what you need for extra support. In the past whenever I've left gag, I've often wondered how you are , so I hope this programme helps you make great progress. I'm sure it will though

  • I don't know how that works but I hope that it helps you feel a bit better soon ❤️❤️
