The best thing to do is to lay down and rest as much as you can right now. Keep taking the pain pills as the doctor tells you to take them. Hopefully that will help. Hope you feel better soon.View Thread
I am feeling better than I have in months. I finally feel like I am pulling out of this depression I am in. I feel more hopeful and optimistic about things. School is going better for me and that was something I let slip when I was feeling very bad.
I plan on making sure I go to all of my therapy appts. during the holiday season because it can get stressful. I have a job interview for a part time position so I am hopeful about that. I haven't had an interview for a while. Part time is what I need right now because I cannot handle full time plus school.
I would say I am doing good right now and as long as I go to my appts. it should stay that way.View Thread
It's a good thing you are taking your dream as a sign to get more help. You don't want to take it literally. At least you are going to see your doctor tomorrow. You just have to be honest with your pdoc. That's the best way to handle it. You don't want to hold back. He may not see your situation as one that is so bad that you need to be in the hospital. Just try to get that therapy appt. sooner. You need to be able to go in more than just once a month. Especially if it's the only way to make sure you are safe.View Thread
Make sure you take the meds to take care of the infection. Try to keep it clean also. You don't want it to get worse. Sorry to hear you may need skin grafts. They must be some pretty bad burns. Try to get some rest and make sure you take care of yourself!!View Thread
Keep standing up for your rights. Especially if those right are in writing. You deserve to live in a safe, caring environment. You don't deserve to have your rights violated every time you turn around. Take care of the wounds, gently with some antibiotic cream or something to keep them clean. Let them heal. It will get better for you.View Thread
