i never been in a psych ward, for the record, but i felt we could maybe use a virtual "psych ward" on this forum where people can come into if they need someplace to feel safe in.

You wouldn’t like it midnight, having every minute of your day monitored. And not being able to go outside unless they felt you would come back. It’s not something you would want

That last time I was in there was a couple of people I got on well with but it was very frightening and if you don’t comply the big men come in and force a needle in the bum to sedate you.

Hospital is a horrible place to be - your freedom is taken away and you can be held down and forcibly injected. It's noisy and very boring.

Don’t worry midnight it hasn’t triggered anything. I just thought you were thinking that a psych ward was a good place. But I understand you were thinking of a safe place. I’m feeling ok at the moment and have had quite a good day and done some gardening so don’t need it:hug:

Maybe if it’s a virtual psych ward we can have it the way we want? With safety, compassion, flowers, therapy pets etc?

I wish I still had a cat. My bluebell was one of a kind and lived for 18 years and was convinced she was a dog
Previous boy cat Dylan thought he was a dog, he was always trying to pick a fight with the bin lorry and would chase it away up the road real territorial :LOL:

My daughter has a cat that actually retrieves. She throws stuff for him and he brings it back. If I can find the video I will post it

im happy ive only had to stay in a ward for a max of 48 hours, even though it felt like a week because there was nothing to do, must have read through the same damn newspaper they gave me 50 times

Not wanting to cause anyone distress, but is someone confined to their room for the duration in these places :hug:
