Default Seems like ages

There are several unanswered threads in this section. I'm not expecting too much really. I hope to see other threads answered, as maybe it will answer my question.

I just see no reason to barge in on someone's thread right now, especially since, I've got no advise to offer of my own.

I've not gotten real help in about 10 years or better, and I'm falling apart at the seems. I've hardly been able to control myself on the forum, let alone in real life. My emotions are all over the place. I go from deep sadness, to somewhat energetic, only to at times wind up extremely angry (what happened the other day). I had no choice but to call a hotline the other evening. I was pretty scared to say the least. I was treated pretty badly by medical professionals in the past (you know why). Turns out, I was initially treated with respect by the man I spoke to on the phone. He said, they will make sure I'm hooked up with an LGBT team, and address my past addiction(s). I feel better about this, since this was not the case when I was hospitalized.

I guess, my question is, what others are asking. What should I expect?

Will they force meds on me? Will I have to go to group sessions?

Here is another problem, I have no real friends, and they want to know I'm released to real people (friends/family). I simply don't have that, that I could rely on, should I be hospitalize again. Only online. I hinted at this, and that seemed to not go over all that well (online friends).

I know, so many questions, but I can't chicken out as I normally do this time. I in trouble!

Why do I even bother anymore. There is no hope at all. I just bullshitted my way though it today, and, I'm not calling again. She asked if I were a danger to myself, or others. I said NOT.

This is a lie, and I'm in trouble, and nobody gives a shit abut a fag these day.

Know what, I just see no reason to even bother at all. There is not hope for me. Besides, I wasn't going to tell them everything anyway. Whats the point, if you aren't going to be honest anyway. I would've just pretended to get better eventually, to get away.

I'm sorry for overreacting. The lady I spoke to over the phone, was really not the therapist. I think she might've been a receptionist. She had NO people skills, and was not sympathetic at all, to my situation.

I'm not calling back. However, I won't give up on my own mental health, so easily.

Any comments/advice are welcomed still.

They should take you MORE because you have no friends, not less. And they should not treat you badly if you ARE hospitalized but have nobody. IF they do, that's fucked up, and I know it's probly happened so I tell you to be careful... I know what it feels like though (though in other situations) to not be able to tell the full truth (or even nothing but the truth) when you want and need to. But it's always best to find the nerve from some source, and do so. Tell them anyway, from a remote location. They might be able to talk you down, and they won't be able to send the cops after you.

Well, unfortunately, I never called them back. My opinion still holds true. Gays are treated badly, and I hope I find a therapist someday. I'm still not entirely stable.

I'm not in a crisis situation, as I was. I'll try to take your advice, and try from a remote location. Although, that really isn't the problem. What was happening, is, she told me, they would not release me with only online friends.

I'll reach out if I'm in bad shape.

Really, I would rather have online friends now. People in real life are a pain in the ass.

I love my TTL friends.

They're so stupid... they're encouraging you to not get help, by scaring you into thinking you won't be released. They are just trying to cover their own asses. This way if something happens to you they can pretend you never called. Of course, they can't and shouldn't lie to you either... that doesn't work and is wrong... but you know what I mean.

Minorities are sometimes treated bad even in psychological practices, where we came to feel BETTER about it, not worse. Like when I had postpartum depression, I told the shrinks and social workers and what I got was treated badly. Which made me WORSE, not better.

Find a minority-friendly shrink. Of course, the shrink should also be empathetic in the other ways that you need.

Thank you for you support Anastassia.

Yes there are just playing cover their own asses. They just brushed me of like was nothing of any importance, and as if I don't deserve help. I was treated like I'm deserve a miserable existence because I'm gay.

In all honesty, I'm not all looking for help in dealing with my sexuality, I'm totally secure with that. If it comes up, them I'm fine discussing it. Otherwise, I have a lot bigger problems to deal with (anxiety depression suicidal tendencies), and these are the most important.

Its just unfair that my sexuality, is what is preventing me from getting help I am in great need of.

I still have not bothered with therapy, and I'm not sure I will again, after this last experience. I'm not sure I trust minority friendly shrink. Although, Ive never really give one a try. Why in the world is this such a big deal still in 2014????

I'm sorry to hear this gene>.< but you deserve to get help as much as others.
I read on the first post, they say they will put in contact with the LGBT team, how did that work out?
Sorry if I'm gonna offend you by saying why not not disclose the sexuality part? since you are secure with that, I know it's unfair but you need help for the major issue instead>.<
I guess for therapy wise it really comes down to the finding the right person, hopefully you can find one soon, don't give up.
