"For the first time in two years I feel more normal"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital / Parkwood inpatient unit

(as the patient),

Medication here is great - that's helped me. For the first time in two years I feel more normal. I can hold a conversation without falling asleep.

Everyone has been helpful, particularly in talking with my mum and I don't want to let her down.

They could be more flexible about people's leave and do it on an individual basis and review it more.

Thank you for all the help. I feel 100 per cent better for all the input. Thanks to all the doctors and all the staff.
