I just got out of the hospital last night.  Usually the hospital helps a lot and I feel really stable when I get out.  This time that isn’t the case.  I got out early because so many bad things happened!  Nurses screaming at me, being threatened with 7 security guards in the ER at one point, having my journal read because they thought I was documenting things that were happening.  This stay did nothing but make me feel less that human and scare me.  Usually they keep you about 4 days and I begged to be let out after 3.  Thankfully the doctor agreed to do that.  If anything, I think this stay made my PTSD worse.

What is PSTD sis? Oh, you mean you are detained and after 3 days you got freed? oh my! I feel bad about you and worried too.

PTSD is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  It means you’ve been through a, or in my case many, traumatic events in your life.  Yes I was held for 3 days.  Had the doctor not let me out Friday night I was going to be asking to sign myself out against medical advice.  I had admitted myself voluntarily so it would’ve been hard for them to hold me.
