Why are you in hospital?

I was deemed at high risk of harm
Lucky you! I wasn't allowed my phone.
Do crossword puzzles!
Just be good and you'll get out. You don't need to be TikTok famous to suffer. Do you really honestly think hospitalisation will help you rn

Oh. Ik that antipsychotics suck ass. But I'm autistic (and possibly BPD/ADHD) , so they probably might help you a bit. You just have to trust the healthcare system/process rn a bit. Also I like the idea of arts and crafts, but I would suck at them. But you're in there for a reason....Ik that schizoaffective is like schizophrenia and bipolar mushed together and it must be terrifying. Do you feel any better now than you did before? I hope you do. I'm just faking recovery atm for social services and lemme tell you it is not fun.
How long have you been in hospital for?

I'm glad you are doing better. Any indication of how long you may need to stay in for? Have you been in hospital before?
