I've done so so well (for me) for over 6 months no admissions or drinking or much self harm voices under control etc but just recently I've been struggling more with the voice and thoughts and shit and I've been admitted which is a bit of a shock as I didn't realise I could be perceived as that ill (I think my problems are mostly spiritual atm not mental health but that's irrelevant l). This ward is especially difficult for reasons I can't say here out of paranoia but I'm just feeling desperate I don't even know if I'm sectioned or not I just feel so bloody confused and threatened and scared. So yeah any hugs reasons not to do myself in would be appreciated <3

Hugs its bound to be scary at first then your get used to the place hopefully they gave you the right meds and treatment and you won't be there for a long time. In regards to knowing if your sectioned when they go through paper work they should let you know then your be okay hugs xx
Hey, I know we haven't talked in ages but i'm sorry to hear that you're struggling.
This may be silly, but it always helped me when I was inpatient... Do they have a schedule somewhere? perhaps posted on the wall? There typically wasn't much "stuff" going on where I was at, but just knowing what time different parts of the day happened was helpful. I would count down from one event to the next.
You mentioned that you're feeling paranoid. Is there any staff there that seem approachable? Or do you have a point staff assigned to you? (like the one staff who is supposed to be your go-to for information and such).
this is my magical medicine cabinet. Left to right they contain: courage, hope, calmness, and strength.
The magical part: They NEVER run out, so borrow some any time you want.
