Apparently I’m going to have a psychiatric evaluation tomorrow.
At a mental hospital.
I just hope that they won’t want to keep me. I know I probably am overreacting but I don’t want to be kept there. I have heard so many horror stories. I would feel so trapped.
I fear neither death nor pain.
What do you fear, my lady?
I just don’t want to have to stay there. I’m so nervous and scared and anxious and I should probably go to bed but this is going to keep me awake for a while…
Generally speaking, hospitals will admit people who are suicidal (and not even always then) or who are a danger to other people. Usually, you’d already be in hospital if that were the case, or the police would be taking you in for an emergency evaluation. I’m not sure where you live, but many hospitals are over-crowded with people needing their mental illness stabilised, so they don’t take in people who they think will manage to stay alive between therapy appointments.
