Went to ER

Tw: suicidal ideation

Soooo… I went to the emergency room this evening because I couldn’t take it anymore.

The doctors were super nice. The hospital social worker was really nice.

Get to the emergency mental health worker- who is also nice, but didn’t listen to me at all.

She actually said the words “ACT team” to me until I pointed out how ridiculous she was. Then she backed off.

I am like honestly so frustrated with the “system” at this point, (not counting my therapist who I love), that I am just kind of done with it.

I am not a fan of the crisis team- something this emergency mental health worker kept trying to cram down my throat.

I am not a fan of gatekeeping in general.

I know I’m not really safe.

Except, no one wants to listen to me.

It feels like I’m being pushed. And I am. I’m just not sure people realize that I am not necessarily able to be pushed well.

Or that I am currently able to go in the direction they want me to go in.

It doesn’t mean I’d do something just to “prove a point,” however life is past unmanageable.

I don’t know how to make it manageable.

I need help.

    1. Well I mean, I have a therapist and a psych and I am already using the “crisis team” (which is not super helpful), and they wouldn’t do inpatient. So… I mean, it’s kind of “just figure it out.”


    1. Eh. It was okay. It ended up being for the best. I probably would have been absolutely miserable in the hospital to be honest.
