When I was 13-14 years old.
(Will be adding more to this post soon)
So I have been discharged for about 4 or 5 months… I am starting to relapse and get unwell. I was taken to Accident and Emergency. The police was surrounding me. I was trapped in a room and I remember being so depressed and crying. I was put in an ambulance with a police officer escorting me. I remember being in reception while the police gave my section 3 paperwork through the counter. I remember thinking about grabbing the paperwork and destroying it, I didn’t though. I was like, I’m back again, damn! It was around evening time when I was put on the ward. I wanted to ring my mum but in the hospital they had to approve who you spoke to, which was quite distressing at that moment in time. I remember all the chaos just coming back to me as I went to my room. It was tough being back in such a dark place. In some ways I think it did help but in a lot of ways it was not the best place for me to be in. I was in seclusion a lot for the first month and was completely drained. Being in a environment like that is very strange especially when you get out of there. If there was no seclusion room available I was held down for hours and hours. Some people was taken off the young people’s site to the adult hospital which was on the same grounds but separate buildings. I was never taken to the adults though which probably best as it could be quite distressing being dragged there. At one point me and a few other patients was planning an escape on our group leave. I was starting to get a bit better so the reality of he plan was questioning if I should do it or not. I am not around the end of my stay at hospital and I have come back off home leave and I was not sure if I was getting discharged on that day. I said to a staff member that I am going to check I have everything out of my room and a new patient walked out. That gave it away that I was getting discharged. I was signed off my section 3 and now back home!
What is going to happened on 14 to 16 years old? Keep checking and sorry for the delay on this post.
