Re: Hospitalization stigma?

Smeegle,

I will always say that if you aren't completely honest with your T, they will never be able to help you.

A T will refer you to a pdoc if necessary, and they may, with your permission, work together to help you. If helping you means inpatient, there you go. HOWEVER, unless you are truly in danger of harming yourself or others, in the US there are lots of other options.

Besides intense daily therapy sessions (I think difficult to get, but I'm guessing here...)we have what are called day programs. It is inpatient "care" on an outpatient basis. You go home to eat dinner (practice what they tell you), go to sleep, et cetera, in your own home. But you must be at the center from about 8:30 or 9 am until 4 or 5 pm.

In terms of your health records, what harm will it do if your records proved you had an illness and was treated for it?

I hope you get the help you need and feel better soon,
Sunny10
