I learned to survive from 0 to 100. At the time the psychiatry wanted me dead. Funny enough this very hospital is closing.

The first thing I did when I got outta psych ward was to think I needed to preserve my sanity because I didn’t want to be hospitalized anymore. Since then, I haven’t been hospitalized. So I’m glad and so proud of myself.

The first thing I did was resigning as my job caused too much stress.

I spent most of my teenage years in a psych unit. When I was 18 and had to live on my own, I swore I’d die before going back. Since then, I’ve had a few very-close calls, but I’ve managed to evade it. It’s dehumanizing and I hate it there. I hate the other patients, the staff, the food, being locked in, having very little freedom, and having orders barked at me. Screw psych units.

I lost a lot of stuff. I said I needed to slowly and surely get back on my feet

It’s been over a month since I got out it’s going well so far better and better

How are you @Daze i missed you then I said I wonder where she is. Then you were back the next day. It’s gratitude. How are you

ohhh yeah, I was kinda wondering about the profile name if that was you.
I probably said something stupid, and was suspended,
wish it wasn’t so long though.
I’m okay, but not doing much art anymore for various reasons.
good to be with you, friend.

When i got out of the psych ward - over 20 years ago now, i went into supported housing run by a load of conning gits called United Response. The roomie was a raging alcoholic - they moaned cos i was spending 9(!!) poxy pounds on food for the week, cos he racked up the phone bill to £700 ringing sex lines and said we all had to pay it.

I wasnt there long. I was arsed if i was paying 3 1/4 of by benefits to fund some 20 something year old twat for half an hour, giving crap advice on stuff i could do myself.

I was better off homeless - and putting a roof over my head booking bed and breakfasts.

I got back to work, which pretty much did me in in the first place. Four more months tho, then I can get help back home. Doing evals in french is not easy at all

I got some grant money to fund my thesis so it should be good so long as I can handle the pressure.
