After a brief inpatient stay at the centre in Ponoka, I am home and feeling a lot better.
I wasn’t able to write while I was there because I could not get my tablet to charge properly, and trying to publish a post on my cellphone is just no fun.
This admission was by far the least chaotic and shortest admission that I have had in years. I was originally slated to be discharged tomorrow; however, with how much better I am feeling, and the fact that they weren’t running all the usual groups, which benefit so much, I opted to come home a day early, and Dr. M was on board.
As for medications, he made a couple of minor tweaks to my meds which have me feeling a whole lot better. I’m actually feeling rested when I wake up in the morning, and that hasn’t been the case for quite awhile.
Overall, I feel that this was a worthwhile admission.
My safety plan worked, allowing for earlier intervention in a crisis than I’ve managed before. Even with this blip, Dr. M reaffirmed that he still considers me to be a success, and said if I need to go back it’s not a failure.
That said , I’m starting to feel like I’m getting to a point where I may not need to go back there. At least I hope I am. Either way, it’s nice to know that places like that exist.
I’m planning on taking the next couple of days pretty easy, easing back into my work and school projects. As well, I want to get out and start taking some pictures again.
