Things I noticed and remember.
1- my room was too hot or too cold.
2- I witnessed other patients being verbally mentally and emotionally abused.
3-Staff yelled at us for no apparent reason.
4-The rules changed at their whim.
5-I lost weight there. The only hospital where I lost weight from not enough food.
6-There was no radio or TV and no newspapers or magazines.
7-The payphone was off the majority of the time. We were cut off from the outside world.
This is all I can stand to write today as it brings up my PTSD issues. I hope to hear from others and maybe get some validation and support from fellow sufferers.
