I've thought about committing myself for a while...

Every med I've tried hasn't worked, I've struggled to stay sober, and my current living environment gives me severe anxiety.

I'm so back and forth about it because I'm so stuck and scared but I also think of the consequences if I'm gone...

I have thought about it for about two years now... but school and taking care of my mother always prevent me. I dont even know if it'll help, but I feel like I need change, and I'm in need of an area to force me to be sober.

I dont know what to do.. advice needed

    When I think about hospitalizations myself, that's my sign that it's time to. You won't know if it will help until you try. It could be life changing for the better. I wish you the best on your journey.🤗

    Please DONT do it. I have thought about this countless times but I've never done it..I'd suggest asking for more help like therapy (which I have done) and that may help a bit. I'd also suggest writing down positive reasons on why you should keep fighting and stay alive! I wish you the best of luck!

      why do you think its a bad idea?

    If you believe this is the ONLY course of action or you believe your life may be in danger if you don't, you should. First, though, I would suggest seeking therapy and medication changes if you can handle it :) I wish you luck!

      I've tried so many medications and have been going to therapy for a long time, I'm hoping if I go to a hospital itll give me a restart to fully focus on my mental and physical health as well as getting constant support with medication issues.
