I have OCD. My main symptom is intrusive thoughts that cause me anxiety. I was treated for it for a few years, and then I was fine, so the treatment stopped. Lately however, it came back strong, and yesterday I had an anxiety attack. So I called my psychiatrist and arranged a meeting with her, because I want to get back on meds. I thought I will just be put back on my old meds, but she told me on the phone that she wants to change my treatment, and since I live alone (my parents are out of the country) she wants to put me in a mental hospital for a few days to see how the treatment works. I don't know what to do. I was never hospitalized and reading on the internet, it seems that those places aren't very welcoming. I don't know why I am so afraid, but I think it's because they have so much power over their patients. They can tie you up, drug you, lock you up, etc. I know there's no reason for this to happen to me, but my heart is beating like crazy just thinking about it. I am scared and I don't know if I should refuse or not.
