"scariest time of my life"
Posted by Anonymous
I was sectioned by the southend police because they were concerned with my safety.
They thought I had gone missing and when I arrived at chalkwell station they took me to the hospital.
The ward was very clean and my room had a private toilet.
There was a towel for me and the bed was comfortable.
I was examined zoom after my arrival.
I told the nurse
What medication I took and repeated it to a nurse a few hours later but in the 20 hours I stayed there i was not given any.
The staff were lovely and I got nice cups of tea but was only given a small salad and a sandwich when I asked for it.
There was no offer of a radio, television or reading material.
I was allowed to have my mobile which was a basic one offering no on line access.
It was all very peaceful but I could have done with some hot food and my medication.
