As above, ask anything from food to daily routine. I will attempt to answer all questions but I am sorry if I miss your post. Please post it again if this does happen.

Hello! Not been great recently. I struggle with suicidal thoughts and voices everyday.
I'm sorry to hear. What happened in the last few months? I thought you were getting better?

Life is pretty **** at the moment. But I believe I am in a safe place away from society with regards to the corona virus
:crossedf: But if it breaks out there then it'll be big trouble. Are you detained?


That might sound strange that I am suicidal but afraid of the virus but tbh I have no longer got any idea whether the voices are influencing my perspective on life.
Well that's good... or not so good to hear. I hope you stay safe anyway.

There is tape on the floor around the meds room, office and servery to ensure people stay 2 m apart. All staff have to have their temperature checked before coming on the ward. Food is now available to staff rather than just patients I think because it is difficult to buy food.

I’m actually finding this quite a scary time but at the same time I don’t care if I die. :dontknow:
Well I do! Take care of yourself.

Things have slowly gone downhill. I stopped my meds and things have spiralled on from there. Ended up on an intensive care unit for a while which wasn’t nice. I was getting better but it got to the point where I thought I no longer needed to take the tablets. I’m also scared of the long term risks to my physical health.

I’m on section 3.

Thanks for your reply

Why do they restrict how much TP you can use? What if you need more?
