Hey sydkkk

Sorry that you’re not feeling well and you’re scared :( it’s a horrible feeling! I can understand why you’re scared and I don’t know what to recommend other than to offer you a big hug, I think other people here have experienced hospital so they’d be better placed to talk about that but just wanted to say you’re not alone and everyone here is really nice and will talk to you / help you if you want - sending you a big hug :hug:

Sorry you're feeling bad, I would go in voluntary if I where you. If they blue paper you you'll have to stay in longer. I hope you feel better soon 😌

Hey Sydkkk

I read your response where you’re going in voluntary - I hope it goes okay! It’s okay to be scared but I’m sure they will want to help you get better and be out and about in no time! like what happens in any other hospital! I hope you feel better soon and if you need anyone to chat to we’re here! X

I would be exactly the same to be honest but remember they want to help you, it’s not in their interest to keep you their longer than they need to make you feel better! Hope it goes okay X we’re here for you if you need anything

Hello. I think you have done the right thing. You have not felt safe for a while now and being in hospital will ensure you are safe and have people who can support you. Please do not worry. It is good to know you have a caring mental health nurse.

hi Sydkkk

I was very scared at first as well
and engaged with some legal advice
you can ask them about that if you like
once you start to trust people things will go better
I started to like it there and didn't want to go home !

I understand how scary it can be as I was in hospital ten times, but it's the best place to be if you feel unsafe.

Hope you feel better soon!

I also got very good at getting my way
regarding what we were watching on telly !
