I was hospitalised for my depression and anxiety in December 2012. I was there for just under two weeks and it really helped. For the last few months, since before Christmas, I have been gradually getting bad again. My depression is always there but is at times held at bay. I've been on the same strength of meds since I was in hospital (100mg clomipramine) until Wednesday when my gp increase it to 125mg. I am trying to get into my psychiatrist but haven't heard back, I will ring again tomorrow morning. I'm not feeling any better, probably a bit worse actually. I'm not suicidal but have thought about death, if that makes sense. I want to go to hospital, I feel safe there. Can I ask to go? I'm scared they'll say that I'm not bad enough to go in. If I can't get I to see my psychiatrist tomorrow, I'm going to ring my gp. I'm meant to go back to him Thursday but he said come sooner if I feel worse. What do I say? Do I just ask to be put in? Can I do that?
Apologies if this doesn't make sense, I am very flustered/shaky.
