    I love reading your articles as I feel every word you say. I have never tried to end my life although it has crossed my mind many times. Please stay here as long as possible as you keep me alive in more ways than you possibly know.

    What hospital did you go to?
    That’s what I want?
    A hospital that doesn’t force you to do”Groups” and “Courses”
    I just want to go somewhere fo”Strictly”change of “Medications”… I suffer with “Social Phobia”along with a multitude of other things’And I just want to be left alone!!!
    I can find”Nowhere or Place”where they do that???
    But I’m glad you’re doing well”
    Have a Lovely Christmas!

    Thank you Elaine. Mirrors my own experience of forced hospitalisation and, frankly, the most unhealthly of places for anyone. I don’t have family support though you have, in a way, given me some support. Take care sweetheart & my love.

    In the past, I lost track of how many times I was hospitalized. The last one was so horrible and horrifying that I swore never, ever again. That was back in 1996 and I never have been. I’d rather die than go thru that again.

    I have many examples and here is just one: This place would lock us out of our rooms all day and force us to do stupid stuff. There was only one common bathroom we had to all share and it got disgusting.

    They screwed up all my meds and I was so drugged out, I didn’t know if I was coming or going.

    Nope, never again.
