Sounds like you've had a really rough time of it.

A part of me thinks that being in hospital can actually be an unpleasant experience for some people. As you said, you were held down and given injections - that can't be a nice thing to experience. :(
And so I can understand why you would have wanted to run away.

But ultimately when you had run away, you were vulnerable. There are some nasty people around that could have taken advantage and you could have ended up in serious trouble, so I agree that returning to somewhere safe was probably the best thing.
I'm glad you got to go home though. I think that's the best place to be, as long as you're safe.
