Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you're here. I just listened to the Martin Willis episode (12/23) two days ago. I was touched by your responses to the survey which Paul read at the top of the show. I've been in inpatient psych units before and if it were possible, I would have probably kept it a secret from everyone including my family. It sucks that when my life is the hardest, those are the times when it is most difficult to connect to people. It sucks that I haven't been able to talk about what I'm going through, at least not fully, with very many people. I have this forum, I have a therapist now, I have one close friend, and I'm working on ways to make sure I'll always have support.
Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
