    Yes. ( I know I shouldn’t feel ashamed or embarrassed about this, but I am. I would never judge another person for being hospitalized for any reason, but for me it seems unacceptable in some way.

    I spent one night in a free clinic (no insurance) because of SI and suicidal thoughts. I really thought I might go overboard with the cutting and I wasn’t opposed to it. That scared me. So I voluntarily entered myself into this clinic.

    It was horrible! There was an elderly woman who keep getting into bed with me in the middle of the night. I kid you not. It was awkward and frustrating and at first I felt really bad for her. Then she entered my bed for the 4th and final time and there was no more sympathy. Just anger toward her and even more so toward the attending orderlies for not taking care of the matter sooner.

    The next day was bad. People there were much more mentally unstable than me and seeing them all in one closed setting was very depressing. The nurses and staff refused to treat anyone like an adult. They were patronizing. I know I have issues, but I am still of sound mind. I do not appreciate being treated otherwise no matter where I am. Even in a mental institute people deserve respect. I made sure I was out that day.

    It’s one of my greatest fears that I’ll have to go back there for any period of time…especially longer than 24 hours.
