I need to know what the differences are between in and out patient care. I am considering having my mother check me into a hospitol because I am severely depressed, often suicidel and have a problem with Asphyxia(self harm). I see petachial hemorrhaging on my face and neck and know its bad. I am trying to research this and decide what to do. what to try. I am terrified, absolutley terrified--so please be honest.
