It's not bad. The staff here actually care and are involved with their patients.

Wait, are you visiting one or are you checked in?
If it's the former, I hope whoever you are visiting improves. If it's the latter, I hope things get better.

I checked myself in, and thank you.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
You ok, hun?

"Oatmeal raisin" is a very political statement. As the oats and raisins were collected by a workforce of humans instead of machines. Hundreds of souls were forced into workforces and armies by their Khan to gather all the dried grapes and oats from the fields and destroyed cities. They were worked or fought into an expiration date that was less than a pack of oats or raisins itself. The US paid them handsomly, but only the Khan got the benefits of the trade. Thus, violent protests were held against the US supporting a monster of his own people.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
Yours allows you access to the internet? Lucky.

I'm hanging in there. Before going to the hospital, I was isolating myself and withdrawing from everything which led to my downward spiral. I'd like to stay longer but unfortunately my insurance will only cover my stay here as long as I am suicidal, which sucks because I don't feel like I'm ready to leave yet. Hopefully I'll get into their outpatient program so I can avoid isolating and relapsing again.

Once earlier this year, although mine was involuntary. Miserable experience altogether; cost me thousands of dollars I didn't have, and they barely did any counseling because it was over a weekend. I was basically forced to watch Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell movies for 10 hours a day. Would have been better for my psyche to just send me home tbh.

It was involuntary but you still had to pay?

Yep. Before insurance, the 4 day stay was $5,000. That's not including ER, either ambulance, doctor, bloodwork, etc.

Get the most you can out of it. Outpatient is a good choice if you're still struggling.

Long live NoNolesNeckin.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.

This is why I hesitate to visit the hospital. The cost of medical care in the US is astronomical. I had a seizure a couple of months ago most likely due to an electrolyte imbalance and it cost over 5K even though I only stayed a couple of hours. I think the ambulance ride alone was probably 3K. And I didn't have insurance at the time so it's all on me to pay.

It's such an awful thing to do for people with mental illness. Slap someone with a bill for thousands, that surely won't make them any more suicidal than they already are.

Also, ayy finally hit mythic. Only took 5 and a half years.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
i dont understand how americas med field is still operating how it is

"flaming nipple chops"-Your host, the man they call Ghost.

To say, 'nothing is true', is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say, 'everything is permitted', is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.
who are you

While insurance """helped""", between two separate accounts I was still responsible for something like 20% of the cost (around 2k). Fuck anyone who tries to argue that the average person can handle interactions with insurance coverage when these companies go out of their way to make it difficult as possible to get things covered.

And yeah; my primary emotion the first couple of days was regret. I regretted doing what I did to cause the entire chain of events, but I also regretted getting help. I felt like I was being punished for choosing life, which is not great. And that was BEFORE I got the bills.

I am paid up now thankfully, unless I get a surprise bill for some random tylenol I took when I was blacked out. All it took was wiping out my savings and any extra money I made over the latter half of the year.
