So back in October I had a really, really bad panic attack. 

I had ended up overdosing on ibuprofen. Honestly, I don't know if it was a suicide attempt or not. I wasn't in control, I know that much, because my panic took over my entire body and thought process. It was terrifying. I ended up calling 911 myself, because I didn't really know if I was dying (I was). 

Anyway, I had to stay in a psychiatric hospital after I left the regular medical hospital, and it was the worst experience ever.  Not only did I feel so out of place due to the fact there was a lot of people in there who had it worse than me, but no matter how you ended up there, people looked at you like you were crazy. And that's actually a PTSD trigger for me. 

okay so blah blah blah.. I ended up leaving the inpatient after a week or so and had reached the state of nirvana once I was in outpatient. That lasted a week. 

Now, only a few months later, I am back in the same exact place. My PTSD symptoms have subsided, but it's still something I struggle with. 

Plus, maybe this is my unpopular opinion, but I hate physiologist's.  All they want to do is pump my blood stream with drugs and it's such a god damn pain in the ass. 


Sorry for this rant.

    No need to be sorry, this is definitely the place to do it. I myself have had to stay in a mental health unit when i attempted suicide at 17. (Ironically, I also overdoes on ibuprofen. Did you have to drink charcoal? Ick, that was the worst.)

    A lot of people, including myself at times dislike psychologists. I have meds to help with my anxiety and depression, but I never take them because I dislike them and how they make me feel so incredibly much.

    There are other options. Natural remedies that won't leave you feeling like a zombie or unlike yourself. I'm going to the store today to pick up some Vitamin B12 to try that.

    I hope you find this site helpful.
