I was a little bit psychotic last night and went for a bike ride in the nude - but a cop car came by and they stopped me and in the end I got taken to the Place of Safety in an ambulance.
Eventually I was assessed by 2 doctors and a social worker and sent home in a taxi.

Why can't people leave me alone?
I was just doing it to feel better - I'd had a very hard day.

There's no point to these assessments, the doctros are hopeless at working out what is going on in my mind because when I get into converstaion the craziness calms down and I appear rational. It is conversation that I need to stay sane.
So they send me home and then anything can happen

And they haven't any beds if they did want to take me in - I heard a nurse on the phone about it. It's so stupid this cutting back of beds - people are dying out there.

So I'm home alone again and I can't take the medication because I just can't - I've tried.
Life has to be lived! You only get one.
And sometimes, just sometimes, you feel WONDERFUL!
Then a bloody cop spoils it all. :mad:

Sorry that must have been awful. Have you tried taking a lower dose of the Meds? I hated the high dose but often am less up and down on a low dose. My mental health team said they'd rather I took a smaller dose than none at all. I don't know if you'd want to do that though x

Hi Shaky,

The last 4 to 5 years at times, this has been what i needed too, 'It is conversation that I need to stay sane.'

i would need people outside of my family home to relate to, this would bring about a re-calibration of sorts & would bring me back to a 'balanced' state, - emotionally, mentally & subtle energy wise.

At times i found the home treatment team people & also visits from my psychiatric nurse crucial to helping me get through those phases.

Were you able to convey to the doctors your need for 'people' help ?

Could you get the support of the home treatment team to help you through this current phase ?

Wishing you well :hug1:

that's kinda rude letmein. Being naked in public is not in itself an offence in england. Why shouldn't shakey ride naked if he knows it is what he needs to feel good? The police could have stopped shakey to ask if he was ok and if he wanted assistance and then left him alone when he explained he was fine.

wasn't aiming at being rude, was just getting tot he point if you know your doing something which is going to draw attention to yourself then why do it? There's a lot of shit I'd like to do to make me feel good, some legal, some not. But why poke a wasp's nest? Now if "shaky" was unwell and didn't know or wasn't in control then I fully get going for a naked bike ride.

and although not happy it sounds like he was treated well and correctly by the police and they got him to a place of safety.

I am wondering how you got your bike home if you went in a taxi.

public nudity isn't illegal in england BDU
public obscenity is and nudity is considered public obscenity, especially while dangling off a moving bike frame one presumes.

that's why people don't run around naked, and why police stopped Shaky.

Are you actually defending this, would you like your next door neighbours to be out walking their dog in front of your kids with their genitalia resting on their thighs in plain view?

Slight difference between murder and seeing the natural human form in public (god forbid)
Comparing the two is ridiculous
