#033 – Pychiatric Admission – Day 8

Not that it is something to be celebrated but I haven’t had a drink in over a week. I haven’t struggled with this at all. This something I probably shouldn’t admit but in previous visits to the hospital I would get leave and go into Mornington where I would buy a six pack, find a quiet spot to sit and drink. I would never return too intoxicated and nobody ever discovered my little secret and luckily I was never breath test like they do in the alcohol rehab ward. I’m actually surprised they haven’t tested me when I return from outings because of my history. I haven’t had any sneakies during this admission. I’ve replaced it with caffeine.

I had a pretty average day today. I spent a lot of it in bed and hibernating in my room. I didn’t even spend time writing. I didn’t see my shrink. Not that he could have helped. As much as I get along with him there’s only so much he can do to help. When I’m not travelling too well it usually results in a medication increase. It sometimes seems medication is his solution to everything… but what else is he to do?

I’ve been in for a week now and I have no idea how much longer I have to go? I usually get discharged at a time of my choosing. This is usually after 2 or 3 weeks. I’ve never been held against my will (except in the ICU ward at the Melbourne Clinic). I guess there’s no point in keeping me in here if I don’t want to be here.

I'm a 37 year old who lives in Melbourne Australia. I have many interests but I want to base this blog on my mental health. I have schizophrenia, depression & anxiety. I have 15 years experience with psychiatrists and I have had close to 20 hospital admissions. I plan on writing about my delusions, voices, paranoia, depression and how to deal with them psychiatrists :) I really hope this blog can help someone. Please feel free to contact me and I promise to get back to you. Have a nice day!
