Back in hospital...

So after many months of relative wellness, here again I find myself in hospital. I spent a week at the Civic before being transferred to the Royal. I find comfort in the familiarity of my surroundings and of the staff at the Royal.

I don’t know exactly how I slipped or what went wrong…looking back, I believe I had a hypomanic episode and then just crashed to the bottom. It’s frustrating to find myself back here because I was so sure that I was doing everything right: my diet, exercise and medication regimen remained stable throughout the time before I landed in hospital.
