Thank you all for replying. I didn't expect a response, just wanted to put it out there so my DH and I are really surprised and grateful for your concern. I'm not too fussed about the public outing by the nurse. It was really interesting being on the other side of the fence, so to speak. It's changed me but in a good way.
As for birthing in the ward, I'll be moved when the time comes as they don't have the facilities to cope with a baby. Hopefully, I'll be out by then, though. I get formally assessed Monday. It's a voluntary committal in that I've signed myself in but the time is compulsory. First up it's a fortnight then reassessment with more time possible after that, depending how I go.
I managed to get three hours' sleep last night, hit a flat patch where I was up and wide eyed and then got another hour in. They did give me medication but I fought it (involuntarily) and so it didn't do what it was supposed to do.
They wanted to give a hit of some harder stuff but I said not until I see the psychiatrist. The first lot zonked me out a bit. DH was allowed to stay on the premises after visiting hours to help me get to sleep which was a huge help. He has been a great support. He runs through affirmations and breathing exercises, especially when I feel an attack coming on. I notice with sadness that the other women there either don't get visits or their partners treat them with distance or disdain. They are simply there on their own to fight whatever they need to fight.
Anyway, I'll be seeing a psych, social worker and someone else in a formal setting tomorrow so I'll know more about what will be happening then.
In the meantime, I say thanks again for the wonderful support. I think I am where I need to be right now.
