Currently in a priory hospital in the West Midlands for my son's due to having a freak out while on a hoboing trip

Bored shirtless after losing the bag with my meds, tablet, chrome book and controllers or I could play xcloud for something to do

Sorry to hear of your incarceration LW.

When I was in the hospital they had a plentiful supply of books and jigsaws, I'm not much of a reader so I opted for the jigsaws.

I think doing a jigsaw may have gone in my favour too, it showed them I had focus, concentration and patience. I think I completed at least half of it in one day before I had to put it away ready for the cleaners coming in.

You should have told the cleaners to sod off.

I love jigsaws

But I also love books.

I collect both books and puzzles, they are my babies. Once upon a time I had nearly hundreds of them...I may have had hundreds of them...then I sold them off, now I want them back again even if my voices are noisy when I am trying concentrate.

I get attached to them like they are little humans.

I talk to them sometimes too and that was before I got schizophrenia.

I find humans less interesting sometimes...they are too serious. They have sticks up their bums, well the people I get to spend time around do anyway.

Priory sounds like a good hospital. Is it private? Just enjoy the food and chill I reckon. Obviously have your wits about you for unhinged other patients.

I’m sorry to hear. I go into the hospital like changing dirty socks. But I haven’t been to the state hospital in over three years. It was a personal goal I set for myself. It’s been working well.

i suck at doing jigsaws so if that was used as a reason to let someone out (whether they can do a jigsaw or not) i would never get let out .......

Thanks for all the hugs folks. Got a review with Psych doc tomorrow so with a bit of luck I should be free.
