And so this happened

I guess this has been coming for a while. I mean, Dr H even mentioned it a while back. But now there's an actual date for my readmission to the psychiatric hospital, and it's not voluntary, it's obligatory - just one false move away from being sectioned.

I feel like the sky has, once again, crashed down on to my head.

This is how it's going to be from now on. This is it. There's nothing more.

I think I've commented once before - I continue to be impressed with your style of writing and your obvious intelligence. It's what keeps me coming back, I guess.
I have pieced together a little of the triggering incident from a little while back, although I'm sure there are huge gaps. Mostly because I'm surprised this doctor has the right to make this order (again). Perhaps things are done differently in France? (I'm in the states.) But here, there has to be a darn good reason to commit someone involuntarily. (And there isn't usually an 'admission' date. It's usually a very emergent type of thing.)
Do you agree with this doctor's decision? If not, I would find out what your legal rights are.
I don't know you but, God, you sound so sad and obviously have kids to think about. I'd love to be able to just solve all your problems...

Thank you so much for your kind words... Dr H can make this decision because he considers me to be a danger (to myself, I mean obviously). He, as my shrink, has every right to make, especially as I'm also a "protected adult" with little say in my (financial, personal) affairs. So he can absolutely do this, but that doesn't make it suck any less of course... Thank you again, your comment makes me feel less alone...

I hope things get better for you soon Magic.
