The hospital doesn't make my auditory hallucinations lessen at all, as it actually gets worse in there with all the noise of people talking, who I think are talking about me, even when they aren't. I had permission to use a radio headset (wireless) to block out the voices at the hospital, so whenever I was not in a group, I would go to my room and lie there listening to music to cope.
My favorite groups at the hospital were, as usual for me, the art therapy ones. It made me want to do something creative on a regular basis outside the hospital at some point.
My job is in jeopardy. They wanted proof of me having a disability so I permitted the social worker at the hospital to send them a form on which my psychiatrist had wrote that my Axis I diagnosis was "Paranoid Schizophrenia", which I don't think is going to be very helpful for me. I am confused as to why he did this when I have been told for seven years that I have Schizoaffective Disorder by every other doctor I have seen.
The human resources person at my job who I have allowed the hospital social worker to talk to about me is now, actually requesting, to talk to my psychiatrist about me. WTF? Has nobody heard of the Americans with Disabilities Act lately?
I'll write something more interesting about the hospital at a later date. At the moment I'm really tired because they wake you up there at 5 AM every day. So this is just a quick update..
