Some times I think about a giant what if relating to what happened and the end of my big psychotic break. What would have happened if I had been to Sharp Mesa Vista hospital instead of Sharp Memorial hospital. The difference, in case you’re asking is that Sharp Mesa Vista is a psychiatric hospital while Sharp Memorial is a general hospital. I’m really not sure what would have happened if I had been taken to the psychiatric hospital. I only imagine that I would have been required to stay there for a longer period of time. Whereas the general hospital treated me with IV antibiotics for a urinary tract infection and released me to the custody of my parents after a week. The reason I taken to the regular hospital instead of the psychiatric hospital is that my regular psychiatrist did not have privileges at the psychiatric hospital. That should have been my first clue to drop his pill-pushing ass. Anyhow, I don’t know of I would have been better off or worse off going to Sharp Mesa Vista, but given my categorical dislike for psychiatric hospitals, the ones I have been in, including Sharp Mesa Vista, haven’t been all that pleasant, I would have to say, I am probably better off.
Does anyone feel one way or another about their stays in psychiatric hospitals? I’ve heard that some of them can be quite pleasant and rewarding. Let me know what you think.
