There were plenty of books and board games but it all seemed a bit out of date, found myself walking round in circles trying to maintain my sanity. A universal remote control wouldn't go amiss, u can get them from a cheap shop =) also the food was quite bad; I'm not one to grumble but I've heard it's of a lower standard than the hospitals other restaurant.
After being diagnosed bipolar and put on meds I received early discharge which I was over the moon about, as I worried about a long spell in there! The whole team of nurses were lovely and I found many of them inspiring, I only wish all the patients could treat the staff with more respect sometimes because there were many kick offs. Only issue I had was my expensive headphones went missing.
Overall a life changing experience, for the better, and I shan't be going back any time soon hopefully! (Unless its to visit)
