Anonymous asked: (1)Leaving hospital and returning to 'life' is always a challenge. However, if you are leaving hospital for the sake of attending UNI, even though you don't feel stable enough, I encourage you to rethink your decision. Your health and safety is the most important aspect. I understand the pressure to get back to school and 'normal' activities. But the pace cannot be dictated, change is gradual, and thats sooo frustrating but there is no quick fix.
(2) You are extremely intelligent and entirely capable of achieving anything you desire. If UNI is only going to add further stress and cause you more harm down the road it’s not worth it. Taking the time to get back on track and feel confident about your recovery is crucial. I know how overwhelming it can be to return home before you are truly ready and I would hate for you to do something permanent to escape in a moment of intense pain. You are to valuable to play Russian Roulette with.
(3) There are many alternatives like distance education, online studies, or even attending classes whilst still admitted. Regardless of what happens, keep breathing and take one day at a time. No matter what you will always have our support, so don’t hesitate to seek help once you leave.
Thank you so much for this. I’m already being discharged tomorrow morning 11.30am like that’s the plan and my doctors don’t work weekends and there’s nothing I can do and even if I needed to I can’t bc running away from it all over again makes it even harder to go back to and I just feel so pathetic. I just don’t know what to do anymore. I don’t know of this is just me avoiding it bc it’s too hard or if I’m realty not ready and still need to be in hospital but then being in here could be what’s making me worse and more shut off from the world hence intensifying my fears of managing day to day life and it’s all to hard to even process I just cry and cry.
Thankyou so much for your message and your support - especially on a night like this I just love you for it xxx
