Same as the first… A little bitter shorter and not much worse.
We were back at the inpatient facility last week. Thankfully, this was a much shorter stay. The very same medication that our new doc was looking to boost turned out to be the problem. Upping the dosage and changing the schedule did the trick.
I have to say that it is a little less scary, and yet equally awful each time we go through this. There is never a good time to deal with mental health crisis, but we are getting more adept at living through them- rather than putting life on hold.
Mostly, I appreciate that we are finding such support in so many places. From bosses to friends in town to online buddies… Prayers are lifted, encouragement and empathy are offered, and hugs abound. God is sovereign and knows what we need. Even when all is chaos, I rest in knowing all will be well. All is well. And all manner of things will be well.
