To cut a long story short, I've had a lot to deal with recently... huge family argument that ended up with my drunk mother trying to get me arrested for assaulting my brother, telling the police I'm an unfit mother, and trying to get them to section me.
The police's decision was that my son and I were not safe to stay with my mum, and took us home to my husband (even though it was out of their area.) Since then my mum has been trying to turn everyone against me and my husband had to call the police on my brother because he wouldn't stop harrasing me.
I slowly started to crack. I saw an emergency doctor and was put on a course of diazepam for a stress related episode. A few days later I tried to slit my wrist... I felt no emotion. I kissed my son goodbye and told him his daddy would look after him now. Shortly after that I was put into a pysch unit as I didn't feel safe in myself and my husband didn't felt he could protect me. They put my meds up and I felt drugged up the whole time I was in there. I hated it in there so much. There were so may inconsistences, and when I complained, a nurse told me to stop spitting me dummy out of the prma and that I'm a grown woman with a child and need to start acting like it. Then I got so stressed out I tried to leave the ward. A nurse detained me under the mental health act, but my own pyschiatrist discharged me 15 mins later.
I'm home now but I feel like I've lost most of my abilities. I've barely left my bed in days, didn't eat or wash for 2 days, have had to get my husband to care for my son. I do want to get better, but I don't know how. The best way I can explain how I feel is: imagine someone has had a stroke and has to learn how to walk and talk again... that's how I feel mentally, as if I've just lost my ability to do anything.
I was just wondering if anyone can relate to this and has any advice? My husband is very supportive but doesn't really know what to do for me.
I would really appreciate any helpful comments
