Thanks for the replies and hugs. I am still on the psychiatric ward. Hoping to get some escorted or unescorted leave at the weekend but that hasn’t been decided yet.

The person who has been allocated as my care co-ordinator is back from annual leave next week. I am surprised they’ve allowed me to stay this long but I do expect discharge soon. I don’t get on with the person who has been allocated as my care co-ordinator and that concerns me - when I got my records from the Trust a while back he had been really negative and mean about me in them.

I am finding the admission useful though and have been attending some group and one to one sessions the past few days which I feel have been helpful.

Another patient on the ward hit me in the week. She kept going in my room and I asked staff to get her out. Being hit made me feel very unsafe on the ward
especially given my visual impairment and I wanted to leave but the ward staff convinced me to stay and are now providing me with extra support.

I feel quite safe from myself on the ward as I can’t order more tablets at the moment as my parents are picking up my post. I think I will end up ordering more tablets and be unsafe at home when I am discharged but there is nothing anyone can do to change that.

I feel that I maybe beyond the point where recovery is possible.

Thanks for all the support - I really appreciate it.
