Weigh in! I’ve gotten quite a few questions about what it’s really like in the psych ward, and I mention things off-hand that really surprise them – That I think is basic, since this was my third time in. So – Here’s a poll: What do you want to know? I’ll answer them in the order I get feedback. You don’t have to be on the “outside” – Others with mental illness might want to compare visits, and leave comments!
There’s also the one I forgot – Why did I go to the psych ward – How did it start? How did I communicate my hospitalization?
Because I’m a nutrition buff (seriously – looking at a MSc in Nutrition & BioMedicine!), I’m wondering what kind of food, supplements, or vitamins/minerals are incorporated into treatment. And, what kind of food do patients eat while in the hospital? Do you think food/nutrients matter? Do psyche ward staff think food/nutrients matter? And have you ever run into anyone you know (or anyone famous) while in the psyche ward?
