The food is ok, not the best.

I will be here for however long it takes for me to get better.

When bored (which I am pretty much constantly) I try to draw, write and listen to music.

Are you voluntary or involuntary? (If you feel comfortable me asking?)

Thank you,

Treatment consists of medication and group activities. In fact, there isn’t actually much treatment here. Everyone is bored.

What sort of group activities do you do? Do you ever get to visit places? Are the other patients nice to you?

Baking, art, board games, colouring... nothing fun.

Haven’t been able to visit anywhere on this ward.
Rehab wards tend to do more activities which include visiting places.

Yes, everyone is nice here.

Are you allowed to do online/ distance learning study and if so would you consider it? What are your plans for when you ultimately get better?

Sorry if it’s a lot of questions I’m just really curious

I guess it is possible to do distance learning but most people on the ward aren’t in a good enough place to
do this.

My plans are to see my dogs and family again. To make friends, learn to drive and to have a life.

Don’t worry, ask away!

No. If someone was on it literally all the time then it would probably be stopped.

I hate being on line of sight. Man here keeps on staring at me. He doesn’t have to, no one else does.

I have schizophrenia, depression and EUPD, apparently.
EUPD/BPD is so hard on its own never mind the depression and that’s before we get to the schizophrenia; I was in for 3.5months so I feel you there. Where abouts in the country are you?

BPD, I hate the EUPD name so go old school - also depression and anxiety. Been waiting 15years for diagnosis 🙄. Suspect more going on with it too but not holding my breath. 😂
