Still here, probably for about another week, at least I hope it will not be much more.

I get to visit my home this weekend, even spend the Saturday night at home. Yeah!

Right now they are fixing the meds (weaning off haldol and lorazepam, upping my AD dose), and I have been very fatigued from all of this for the last several days. I'm just starting to get my energy back.

My morale has also improved. But now I'm just counting the days till I'm OUTTA HERE.

Thanks for all your kind thoughts.

So glad you checked in, DMW. You've been on my mind.

Glad to hear you are improving. Hope you have a great welcome home!

I don't need further confirmation of what a fuckwit he is. I already have plenty, thanks very much. -SBB

DMW - Be proud of yourself for this. You are taking control of you back.

You are strong, brave, and will be a force to be reckoned with.

Checking in hasn't been very possible until recently - been restricted in computer use, and then lost all energy with the med switches.

I'm hoping that things go well enough over the weekend that all I will need to do to 'check out' of this place is to have the meeting with the docs here and my own doc.

Fingers crossed!

I, too, have been thinking about you. Keep putting yourself FIRST!

Damn autocorrect is responsible for the silly errors, sorry!

Believe it or not, I actually miss my days in the Psych Hosp. Only because I'm sick as a dog and really wish someone else would cook for a while.

Take advantage of the time to rest and focus on you. Prayers and positive thoughts coming your way.

Edited to correct stupid typos.

Two steps forward and one step backwards, is still progress.
