The hospital was good

I have never been hospitalized before, but it was a very good experience. The doctors seemed very smart, and everyone was caring.

It was a sobering experience, as I learned that I am more seriously ill than I thought. I thought I had occasional problems with depression, but it turns out I'm bipolar, with a side order of substance abuse problems. I wouldn't have accepted this diagnosis before, but after talking with the doctors and having everything explained in depth, I agree. It's a disorienting feeling. Many things make a lot more sense now, but its strange to have to reinterpret your life from a totally new framework. My attending said it takes an average of ten years--3.3 psychiatrists--to get an accurate diagnosis. That's just about me.

Anyway, thanks for the support. I haven't been on babble much in recent years, but I am so glad it's here.
