I went psychotic following a trauma which is very personal. I lost my job and was sectioned in hospital for best part of a year.
I was treated by a43 and redwood 2 as an inpatient. I was a very difficult patient and my psychosis and fear lasted months. I also battled with a previous issue which was anorexia because of weight gain on my medication.
I took 7 overdoses and ran away from staff. I self harmed twice and made family dynamics very stressful. I was signed up to distress tolerance and am awaiting discharge to a new home under the care of a CMHT.
The staff were so compassionate and patient with me and I owe a lot to them. Despite my ups and downs they didn't give up on me. Neither did my family.
One huge thank you. You are all special to me and I will be always grateful. Thanks.
