No question, but I'd like to go to one. Mainly because I need a vacation.

Are you allowed to leave when you feel better? Or do they decide when you can go? I need some help.

Its no holiday!

I go in once or twice a year, as I have schizoaffective disorder.  I'm usaully in for a few months. Its terrible. I always end up in the seclusion room. 

People wailing and the panic buttons going off. Having a curtain in your door that the nurses tweak open every 10 minutes. Not being allowed to have anything in room. Having to ask the nurse to unlock the cupboard to get a squirt of deoderant. Children under 16 are banned from the ward so I have to take my kids into a pokey little room with broken toys. The fences are high and you feel like you are in a cage.

The open wards are much better though. Real beds and the curtains are not velcroed on. Much more pleasant than  the locked ward. Real knives and forks, not plastic.  But its no holiday!
