Look, I don’t want to cut out pictures from magazines and tell a group how it makes me feel. I don’t want to draw anything. I don’t want to pass around a rock and describe the sensation on my skin. Screw that.
I don’t want to be awakened at 8:00 am every morning and sit through group therapy and than afterwards have some nurse come in and make us lay on the floor and play water sounds on a cassette player. And then have us tense every part of my body and then relax it. It puts me to sleep but were not supposed to do that.
When I’m inside the ward all I want to do is play pool, eat and pace. It’s that simple.
When I open my own psyche ward that’s all it’s going to have. No nurses or doctors, just a pool table, food and long straight hallways.
