Hospitalization and GAD

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has experience with being hospitalized with GAD. Did it help you? I'm really bad right now and I'm thinking it might be a good idea, but, unsurprisingly, I'm anxious about hospitalization without knowing anything about what it's like.

Many years ago I was hospitalized three times in three years.  That was over 40 years ago and I've had worse anxiety since them but never went into the hospital.  If you feel you need to go then please go, you will be taken care of and the stress of the outside world won't be with you.  You will get therapy there too so if you're feeling really bad then go.  I have hospital phobia right now but when I was young I was fine with it and my last stay was 6 weeks.  You'll be fine, not to worry, maybe you need the rest both mentally and physically.  Keep in touch.
