That’s right, fellow bloggers and sanity enthusiasts, yours truly will be entering a 4-6 week acute care facility for depression.
Because I don’t want fans and well-wishers picketing and camping outside the facility I will not divulge the exact location, but I will tell you it is in the Lone Star State.
In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to this because I have been struggling for too long and feel like I am still slipping.
Marie is struggling with the idea – not exactly sure what it is. Probably a combination of the unknown, and uncomfortableness with where I am going and the fact that I am leaving AGAIN for several weeks.
I called my parents a couple of days ago to tell them. “Hey mom and dad, how’s it going? Oh by the way I’m getting admitted to a psych ward. You still thinking of coming for Thanksgiving?”
In all seriousness, my parents have always been so supportive in my life and it was no surprise they are concerned, but glad I am getting help! My mom probably has cried since I told her, but she would never let me know that.
Now the bad news. I highly doubt I will be able to blog real time. 😦 The good news is I won’t be leaving until next Monday and check-in on Tuesday so I’ll have a few entries before I leave.
Here are just a few of the items NOT allowed:
- Clothing with strings or ties of any kind
- Electronics of any kind: computers, mp3 players (cords are not allowed in the units)
- Razors or razor blades
- Shoes with laces
This place is legit!!
