Today I began a partial hospital program to treat my major depression. I have been unable to go to work or to school for the past 3 weeks and finally I was visited by the crisis team and referred to the outpatient hospital program. Today was my first day and although I was anxious through out the day peolple were kind to me and welcomed me with words of encouragement.
The program runs from 9am-2pm Monday-Friday. It consists of intensive group therapy and sessions that incorporate the use of coping skills. I will be in the program for the next 4-6 weeks so I will be taking a medical leave from work to concentrate on getting better.
I am hoping that this program will bring me out of this deep depression that I have been settling into and get me back to a place were I can reach my goals. So wish me luck
