I have been to 2 different facilities and they are all structured around drug rehab, I am not a vet. I am a mom, was a wife, my husband just left me and my son ALL ALONE bc he can't handle it!! I went from dr to dr for 5 years, had operations, procedures and took their nasty medicine... then they thought I was drug seeking and everything is all in my head... FINALLY I found an INFORMED dr who knew the symptoms and diagnosed me, told me since i had suppressed it for over 20 years my best bet was inpatient. I can not find one... Can you please hekp
This is not YOUR job to find an inpatient facility! This is your Drs job! He should be the one finding you an inpatient hospital. If he (or by he, I mean his office staff) is not willing to help place you then he is not so wonderful. Finding an inpatient facility is his job not the patients. How are you supposed to know where to go? This is his expertise. He should be affiliated with, or at the very LEAST, know of an inpatient facility to place you. What part of Florida are you in? Do you have insurance? If you do, call the customer services number and ask them if you have a case manager assigned to your case. If you dont have one, ask if they offer case management services and see if you can get one assigned to you. A case manager can help you with this.
If she doesnt know of a place you can go that accepts your plan then she can at least help by intervening and talking to the Dr to light a fire under his behind to help you! I cant believe they dumped this in your lap! You have enough going on without being expected to find your own inpatient facility! That is just ludicrous!
I don't know where you live but if you can't get in contact with your doctor TONIGHT, go to the nearest ER at the biggest hospital facility near you. They should be able to at least to get you some help. You might also try Googeling "psychiatric centers" in your area - you should at least be able to find a phone listing for emergency psych help. I'm so sorry you're having this crisis but try to keep yourself together enough to follow through for yourself and your son. God Bless and keep us updated when you can. Prayers to you.
