I used to go the the VA because I am a Verteran but, they kept putting me in the inpatient hospital for weeks at a time. They have no therapy there so I don't know what the purpose of that place was. All we did was watch TV and eat. The days were extremely long, they wouldn't let us have anything for entertainment either except TV. We weren't even allowed to have board games or puzzles. I really need medication, I am extremely depressed, I isolate myself and I cry all the time, I never seem to run out of tears. I have no one to talk to because I have no friends and my family thinks I am so nuts. Does anyone know where I can get any help?
mikcol, welcome to the site my friend, you do have support now right here. A lot of the people that are good on this question you have are signed off for the evening, but don't give up hope. They will be back on by morning for sure & see your question & hopefully have a better answer than I. I just wanted to welcome you & let you know you will have lots of friends on this site. My brother has VA, but chose to go with State Aid because of better treament & better options. I don't know if he told the Stae he was a veteran or not. I think it is terrible that the VA, which is supposedly doing a better job, is still treating you this way. Hang in there, & someone with experience will jump on this & try to help you...
