#037 – Psychiatric Admission – Day 9

I’m starting to realise that this whole blog is basically for me. It gets very few views and I don’t give out the site address to people I know. It’s like a personal diary. From day one the main purpose of the blog was a tool to keep me busy during the long days in hospital so I don’t go insane with boredom.

I finally got the sleep in I had been chasing. I slept until 8:30. I woke up feeling good and I only had the one small nap during the day. I still haven’t needed the sleeping medication. I’ve had no difficulties in getting to sleep… I just wake early.

Gem (psychiatrist) came in to see me. Nothing new there. As usual he wanted to increase my Clozapine. I’m now taking a dose with tea. Only a small one so it won’t knock me about too bad.

I’m starting to meet some cool people. Sam who is my age and doing the rehab program has been someone cool to talk to. Just a likeable character. He was a 4 bottles of wine a night guy. There has been a few people leave today but nobody that I will miss.

I’m note sure at this early stage how long I will be in for. I usually start missing home after a couple of weeks. I don’t feel like there is any urgency. I always know when I’m ready to leave. There’s no point in them keeping me 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!
