Hello, I'm posting here about this very sensitive subject because I can't handle myself anymore and I need some guidance.

About 4 years ago, I was really ill (mentally) for a good year, and then it vanished more or less. For that year, I was soul destroying suicidal. I never really gave the full picture to my psychiatrist and I was very good at composing myself for my meetings. Despite this, and despite her not even thinking things were as bad as they actually were, she was adamant that I should go to the mental health unit and stay there until they could give me a 'better diagnosis due to being out of the community and under watch 24/7'.

I decided to go along with it and went. How bad could it be? God was I wrong. It was horrendous, there were people there who needed to be there, and I really didn't.

Sorry I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you unwell again?
