"honest review after 10+ years of help"

the hospital isnt all bad, as many people make out to believe. a awful lot of people go through those doors and walk out new people. but normally end up in the environment they came from which results in going back. and thats when people think it doesnt work. i used to hate this place. hate. overall, if it wasnt for them, would i be here now, 100% chance no. medication is not for everyone, thats something i will always disagree with, hopefully the doctors have learnt this. from my experience that medication can keep you needing treatment again and again and again, its not for everybody. nothing wrong with the nurses, they get fed up, sometimes, but they well try. ive seen how under numbered they are sometimes, rushing round, then people can have the right to say they are not getting the care they need. nobody said it was a 5 star hotel, you go there to get better, not be waited on hand and foot. the doctors, i agree dont give you much choice, but its their opinion at the end, deal with it, get out, get on with your life after. simple. if i can do it why cant everybody else. yeah took me over 10 years, nothing wrong with that place, if you wanna get better, you might have no choice but to go there, its upto you what you make of it. you cant beat the system in there, but you can live once you get out. in a mind thats sable. your choice nobody elses. im still not 100%, i get fed up, i get down right depressed sometimes, just today this very day, i thought someone taking the mick outa of me at a petrol station, because thats all people have even done to me, later i realized, he was just been friendly. making chit chat. and that kills me. but you get on with it.. theres nothing wrong with this place.
