24266 Well fuck...
Jesus Christ I am having a fucking hard time at the moment...

My fucking bitch of a girlfriend came round to my place the other day and went mad raging because the laplander in the shop wouldn't let her use her card and made her get cash out instead. So then we went back to what USED to be my place and she continued raging shouting at the top of her voice about the laplander. The fucking thing is my neighbours just so happen to be of that race.

Next thing the fucking landlord comes round and says that there has been a complaint about her and that we need to keep it down. After this we go to the kitchen and start cooking, and some black guy that lives in the next room comes in and he's all like "hey girl" which pissed me off no end. Fucking thing is though, he is massive. So I do my best to defend my position but ended up getting knocked the fuck out and thrown down the stairs. All the while this bitch is standing there loving seeing two blokes argue over her.

Anyway, the landlord came again and fucking evicted me. Then she fucking left me stranded and refused to let me into her place. Since then I have been sleeping rough and I do not have a clue what to do. I've lost my phone, I've developed a huge alcohol problem and I don't even know what to do about any of it. Sorry for repeating myself I'm on a bit of a rant.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Because who goes mental about having to use cash? And who refers to someone they live with as "some black bloke"? And what the fuck does "defend my position" mean? Then you get thrown down some stairs for doing so?

Well I am still alive.

The council are refusing to help me and I have had to put in an appeal, which I apparently have to wait a few days to receive a decision.

I've been trying to avoid the mental slag, but she came looking for me the other day at a place where I was sleeping. I stayed at hers for one night and she very nicely kicked me out the next day. This is all really starting to get to me now I do not have a clue what to do.

I stayed at my mums on her floor last night, and she put me out this morning after causing a massive argument. I don't know where to turn next and it's pissing it down with rain.

Thanks for the advice bit let it be known that shelter are fucking useless. All they did was offer to send some outreach people to me to confirm that I was sleeping rough. I mean what fucking good is that?

Anyway I already knew how to get hot food. That is actually a very easy. Clothes too and tents. But as far as housing goes you are fucked.

Anyway my plan is that my mum is taking me to get sectioned at the hospital tomorrow as a faster route into housing again. Luckily I am on the sick for mental health problems so we are just going to exaggerate.

My post just disappeared but I was saying...

I met a police detective sergeant in here who went off his head due to pressures of the job. Also some nutty woman jumped on me me last night begging to go home.

On the plus side they are so much nicer than the normal NHS staff they are really caring and make you as much food as you ask for. And to top it all as much valium as you request. Speaking of which I've just had some so I'll post later if I have net. Now it's just Mr and the sarge telling me very interesting stories about times he's had to watch cp as part of his job.

Just don't get too hooked on Valium. I've been through hellish booze withdrawal before that ended with seizures and screaming panic attacks, reputedly benzos are even worse to come off if you get hooked and the effects can last for weeks. Make sure whatever you're on you're tapering off, cliche as it sounds regular exercise does make a fantastic gradual replacement while you're getting your head together. All the best lad.

>Just don't get too hooked on Valium.
Seriously. Booze is insidious because it's everywhere, but you get a hangover as payment for your overindulgence. Benzos tend to leave you feeling fine the next day (or even give you an "afterglow"), despite providing a relatively similar depressant high; it should be fairly obvious how dangerously addictive this is. Benzos are brutal to kick once you've got a taste, the half-life of the chemical means that coming off a habit means sleepless weeks of feeling like you're going to burst with anxiety and dread. Don't tread that path. Use the valium to get off the booze, then taper off the valium fucking ASAP.

Good luck, anyway. It sounds like you're getting the help you need, which is a rare and beautiful thing these days. Make the most of it. Stay strong.

Well it isn't turning out very fun now as I have been placed on a ward with the fucking really crazy people. Everything and I mean everything is locked, even down to the cereals. Thank fuck that I am only here for a week for alcohol detox.

I am not allowed outside. My girlfriend came here yesterday, at least she can't get me kicked out of here lol. It was such a relief to see her though.

I almost couldn't get on .gs as it's blocked but being a bit computer savvy I worked out how to get around it, or I really would have gone insane.

Best bit of news is that my housing worker phoned me yesterday and said that due to the situation that they are now going to house me, so my plan worked!!!

Keep your head down, try not to interact with your fellow crazies too much or get involved in their problems, and obey the staff no matter how ridiculous or demeaning their behaviour, and do not rise to their bait. Mental health nurses on inpatient duty frequently go on power trips and half of them are actually as deranged as the patients, but unfortunately for you they are in charge for the brief time you will be there.

Does anyone think this would be a good opportunity for a thread about the experience from inside a mental inpatient unit from the point as someone who is actually sane?

What are your plans once this current situation is dealt with, and you've got somewhere stable to live?

Are you planning to get into work? I found (note: depression, not... some sort of mania...?), that having a routine that *must* be followed, of being out the house 9-5, helped me immensely. It's an anchor to structure your life around, you get paid, and you end up spending hours of the day near normal people. Some of which rubs off on you.

Do you also have a plan for dealing with the unnecessary drama in your life? Is your mum on-side, or is that bridge burnt?

My plan is firstly to get on DLA benefits as I need to get some sort of base set up and then I want to get back to work. I'm a web developer/programmer so hopefully I should be able to find something pretty quick.

I was just wondering, you lot do realize that I told a pack of lies to get in here just as a solution for my housing problem and it worked.

Today they finally allowed me off of the ward as I promised not to drink. And.... Just my fucking luck, I go out for a walk and it starts pissing with rain.

Had a bit of an altercation with some lad last night. He committed a major sin; tried to steal my freshly made cup of tea lol and also my cigarette so I had to firmly shove him away and tell him to fuck off. Been left alone since.

Mainly though, the only drama that I have seen is just your general craziness of loud shouting and screaming. Apparently the "real" nutters are on another ward, which I have been told you get sent to from here if you are classed as uncontrollable.

The whole thing has been quite an interesting experience to say the least. Mostly as I am "normal" in relation to all of those in here.

I still have my anxiety and depression to deal with, but that hasn't caused me major problems as I have been medicated for it for ages. I am just so happy that the housing officer has sorted me out accommodation. She is going to meet me when I get discharged which has helped my state of mind immensely.

If I can offer any more insights, please ask away as it is Sunday and I am bored so am more than happy to write plenty on the subject of NHS nut houses.

One thing I will say is that the facilities are great. There is a main area with drinks and snacks and a fucking projector and cinema screen, a separate TV room (where some old man was watching babe station last night lol), a games area and two gardens.

I am amazed reading your experience. I work for the NHS and it is my experience that a place in a mental health ward is so rare as to be almost impossible to get. You must have been pretty convincing. I hope you manage to kick the booze and get some accommodation sorted out. The there posters are right about valium. It's a fucker to kick and the withdrawal is one the nastiest experiences I have yet encountered. Good luck.

Sorry, I pressed the submit button by accident.

Well, I am still here on this ward. I have been told that as soon as I finish my detox meds then I am out of here. I just wanted to point out that I am not actually sectioned, I am here as a voluntary patient which makes a lot of difference. I am allowed off the ward when I want to. I feel sorry for the poor fuckers that cannot get off.

It has been a real eye opener seeing this environment from the perspective of a relatively sane person.

It's amazing how the council have now magically sorted out my accommodation now that I have been in here so my plan has been successful as far as that is concerned.

Had a very funny experience last night; a eskimo woman was admitted on to the ward and she was pretty much mute. Fuck knows where he got it from but one of the patients went back to his room and came back dressed in full Islamic garb wearing a bandana and scared the shit out of her by following her around the ward. We were up until about 3 am doing this shit.

I will provide some more updates later on. Also, would anyone be interested in a guide on how to get through to housing in the way that I have? I would be very interested in writing one for you guys.

Well OP is still alive. I am finding this experience more and more bizarre as time goes on. Funnily enough I am actually disappointed to be leaving on Friday, as I am interested in this environment as I studied psychology at A-Level.

So then... What has happened today? Well, the mad burkha wearing guy got sent to "ward 1" which is the intensive care psych unit where they send the uncontrollables. He did what the big Red Indian guy in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest did and tried to smash his way out of the fire exit which was rather amusing as he was wearing a bin on his head as a disguise as he did so.

Then two guys started fighting over the computer, chasing each other around the ward.

One thing that I have realised is the TRUE state of the NHS and how bad it is. I have pretty much become a fucking honorary member of staff, running around after confused patients and making tea and drinks for those not able to do so, helping less able patients to get their food to their table etc. I'm not doing it to impress, it's just because I am a genuinely altruistic person.

Some fucking nigger has come on to the ward today and thinks he can run the show and has been throwing his weight around. He was the one that started the fight over the computer. He has done himself no favours though, as now pretty much everyone has a dislike for him as he has somehow managed to rub everyone up the wrong way.

On to my housing guide...

I went to the hospital and spoke to some mental health people and told them that I was hearing voices (from outside my head, several of them) and that I was trying to commit suicide by drinking myself senseless on the street trying to induce hypothermia. I sat and acted agitated rocking back and forth, which became quite laborious after a while. I just had to keep stressing that if they let me out I would finish the job.

They offered to place me in an assessment unit, which they said that I really needed. I went there and told the same story and then they placed me on this ward.

Now, when you do this you get allocated a key worker who advocates on your behalf. And BAM as if by magic the housing problem was instantly solved. It seems that if you can get these people to speak on your behalf it carries so much more weight than just yourself presenting at the council.

I am sure I could go in to plenty more detail, but will be happy to answer specific queries if people want to ask me.

One funny thing is that there seem to be plenty of illicit drugs in here, as searching of visitors is lax to say the least.

I am very happy that I have achieved my goal and this will be a story to tell people for many years to come. I almost said a story to tell down the pub, but unfortunately for me, I had a blood test and my liver enzymes were that high off the scale that I was told that if I kept it up for another 6 months I could be dead. So let that be a lesson to you all, as that was only 4 or 5 months of very hard drinking.

Well I've been let out of the ward for a bit to go and have a fag in peace. Ironically, it was driving me insane in there. There's this nurse that is leaving tomorrow so she is being an absolute bitch. They seem to have a dislike towards me due to the fact that they can't talk down to me because I'm not a mental health patient per se, I'm mainly here for the alcohol detox.

At lunch there was an old lady who was clearly confused and was asking for a drink of water but being ignored. I commented that the staff were lazy bastards and that I would get it for her. I was told to keep my comments to myself to which I replied that they should be getting her a drink and not me. The bitch then told me that she was independent and that the staff are not slaves. I'm not medically qualified at all but she clearly wasn't independent when she is sitting there rocking back and forth talking to herself. She isn't even capable of seating herself for dinner. The whole episode has made me feel quite sad actually it's a fucking shambles.

Anyway, I have had my rant now and smoked a snout in peace so I am going to head back into the maelstrom.

I will post the pics I've taken of the ward later with some more information about the state of the nhs mental health service.

As an aside,last night I asked for a packet of biscuits for us all to have with our tea and they got funny about that and even then brought up bus cut backs. Cut backs over a packet of non brand fucking bourbons and digestive.

I think it's clear that yes, he is actually mental. NHS mental units can spot chancers. He will naturally deny it, but one of the things about the insane is that they generally don't realise that they're insane. Someone I knew who used to work in a mental hospital told me about the sort of things people would say to try and get out, and "I lied to get in here" was not uncommon.

This. OP seems to be in there far longer than he should be, especially if he is the chancer he claims. People have been sectioned and let out in less time.

Considering OP's general oddness and how often he "laughs out loud", with how long he was kept there (it's already been discussed how limited spaces in these places are), I'm not sure I buy into his psych ward anthropologist routine.

It's probably unwise to encourage this.

There is an extraordinary shortage of psych inpatient beds in this country. Every day in every bed is a precious resource. Patients are routinely discharged when they clearly need the bed, simply because someone else needs it more. Either OP is genuinely a fruit loop, or he's making this whole thing up for giggles.

I generally agree with the thrust of your point mate but a 44 year old experiment done in American mental health institutions can hardly be considered reflective of the modern NHS.

From what I've heard talking to the mental health lot, it's more that they simply don't see much of a practical difference between someone who is desperate enough to lie in order to get themselves sectioned, and someone who is plain old mad.

What makes you think methal health has moved on that much in 40 years? obviously neuro science has and generally health care professionals will hide behind standardized self survey questions to make diagnoses to shield from the embarrassment of being 'caught out' (the direct outcome of the Rosenhan experiment).

but neuro-science doesn't tell you why the person with perfectly normal brain activity keeps burning down buildings.

No things are still much in the same spot they were before, diagnosis can only really be performed on 1. those actively seeking a diagnosis or 2. those so deviant from societies norms as to be immediately obvious, There are a lot of people who don't fall into either of those categories that should be diagnosed, and those in 1. that get diagnosed that arguably shouldn't.

And everything you said is what I meant when I put "I generally agree". I'm one of those hippies who thinks psychiatry is little more than mere pseudoscience myself, in general.

But again. The staff who work there, like the staff who work in most NHS facilities, tend to be pretty self aware and down to earth about what and why they are doing. They know not everyone inside is mental, but they also know that if you had such a difficult time keeping your shit together that you ended up there, then you might as well be.

Well I've reached my new housing. It's a shitty hostel full of drunks and junkies. Really wise placement by the council considering I've just been I am hospital and completed an alcohol detox.

I've only stayed there for a night so far I've been staying with the girl.

The council have a statutory obligation to house you, not to keep you sane. It's actively in their interests for you to get sectioned or jailed, because then you become someone else's problem. A bed in a psychiatric unit or a prison might cost an order of magnitude more than a bed in a homeless hostel, but it doesn't come out of the council's budget.

Welcome to the Kafkaesque world of government finance.

>During their initial psychiatric assessment, they claimed to be hearing voices of the same sex as the patient which were often unclear, but which seemed to pronounce the words "empty", "hollow", "thud" and nothing else.
To be fair if someone came into my nuthouse and said this, then started taking notes on every little thing, I would wonder what the fuck was wrong with them. Definitely give them a valium or two. Just to be on the safe side, like.

I probably wouldn't make a good psychiatrist.

If you don't stop with this toxic shit of sticking with 'the girl' you will never be in a better state then you are now.

Some people might see fit to date or associate with gutter-trash people as part of a mental health issue or self-esteem problem or something. e.g. I know this guy whose girlfriend was an ex-prostitute, and that's how he met her because he hired her, and she lost him two flats.

OP here...

I cannot really say much at the moment as I have a mental health worker monitoring me over my shoulder in a kind of roundabout way, but an update will follow and it will definitely help a lot of people out that find themselves in similar situations.

I have found out how to play the system and get help at the same time. I really did need some help with some mental health issues that I never really realised that I actually had.

Anyway, that is as much as I can say for now, but as soon as I get a chance I will post an update from someone's smartphone in due course.

I am still here...

I have gained my diagnosis for PTSD and depression and will now be getting all the help that I need with benefits and proper housing not some shitty hostel. This has helped my frame of my mind no end. They have put me on anti depressants which will work properly and put a plan in place...

Excellent... I am still being supervised so I will have to write more later.
