I was wondering how others felt and coped after coming out of hospital?
I've recently been discharged - I wasn't in for asthma this time, but the same feelings are creeping up on me and I'm finding it really hard. I was wondering if this was normal.
I feel very weepy, very unsettled, restless, I can't concentrate on much, tired but not sleeping, a sense of fear but not sure what of - I've had these feelings after admissions in the past so I know I can get through it, but at the moment it feels like I can't do anything and I feel pretty useless.
The hospital and doctors worry about making sure you have meds and can physically and medically cope but there has never been a concern on discharge on how you'll cope mentally, whether you have someone to visit (nope ) or to talk to (nope ) - I feel there's a sense that if you're medically cleared it's assumed all's okay, but however short your hospital stay it does interrupt your life and have some affect on you which you're left to deal with without it being acknowledged.
Maybe it's just me...
