Once I can confirm that my insurance will cover it I think I am going to check myself into the mental health facility near me. I am certain I need serious help but still feel nervous about going. My biggest concerns are: 1) being forced to talk in group therapy. The thought of saying what's hurting me out loud to a bunch of people makes me feel completely ashamed and humiliated. 2) that I will simply be "stabilized" and nothing more and that everything will go back to the way it was before I admitted myself. I dont expect it to make everything peaches and cream, what I'm asking is do they teach you things you can use long term to help yourself? Thoughts on this or any other insight on what a hospital stay is like would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
