Just got out of the hospital

An overnight stay in the hospital was what it took to get me on track again.  Well, as on-track as one gets with a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder flare-up.  They happen, and when they do, they knock you right off your feet and stomp you good.  I was in the Psychiatric Stabilization Unit, or PSU, overnight.  I was treated very well there.  I came back to my apartment and crashed for about an hour after being discharged and getting my medication from the VA pharmacy.  My psychiatrist called this evening to make sure I was okay.  I was actually surprised that the hospital cut me loose, but I allowed them to make the decision based on what they asked me and their own judgment.  I told them the truth and answered the questions they had honestly.  What can I say?
