"Incredibly furious"

About: Weston General Hospital

I was admitted a few days ago, i repeatedly said i didn't want specific treatment as i thought it was unnecessary, they told me, if i didn't let them give me this treatment, they'd get the doctors to section me under the mental health act. I feel absolutely violated and blackmailed.
