Very disconcerting to say the leastI will start of with "good points", but as I haven't been there for a while I am not sure if these will still be good points.It was fairly clean better than a hotel I guess, I got regular meals and they even had a patients cooker so I could occasionally cook something that I wanted to cook.I stayed for 3.5 years or more, I was not under section and was therefore a "voluntary patient" however I was driven to the hospital by someone from the Devon NHS partnership trust and was not allowed to leave except for trips to the local town Harrow until they had set up a supported living company that was "appropriate to my needs".Is it legal to hold someone against their will for this length of time?I gave my "notice" which they required a month for and they said but IAN, you need help!I suffered a lot of stress from wondering why I was being held here and more from wondering why they would not listen to me.I know this country has laws about slander and my mother who was told that she was more than welcome to be part of this "care" has advised me that I may well get in trouble for saying this, but I am 32 and I honestly don't care,I would honestly prefer to kill myself than be forced to go back this again.I see that people may be wondering what exactly was wrong with me and if this could have been appropriate treatment,well my diagnosis as it stands is mild generalized anxiety disorder and apparently I had suffered a brief psychotic episode in the hospital,which from my perspective was a response to them refusing to let me leave. I questioned this decision. They put me on Aripiprazole.which I was prescribed "just in case" but then not given a choice about taking.I see seamus is still the manager.- do they really need that gardener?I have had a full time job for several years and generally keep myself fit.I have never had a problem with rent, I do not have a criminal record.An explanation or apology? nothing yet!I think it's only right to add that since writing this a couple of days ago Cygnet have since responded with an apology, which means a lot to me. Thank you Cygnet, I will be in touch by email as suggested.
Remarkable Hospitals.......Thank you to the respiratory department for taking great care.....!!!
