Report (2)

A couple of nights ago, I finally read the report that was written by the mental health nurse who assessed me at hospital last September [when I was sectioned after a major psychotic episode]. It shocked me, and I frantically typed my reaction into my phone notes. If you are so inclined, you can read them here:

  1. i was once described as euthymic by a jr dr…whilst being admitted for a manic episode *shakes head* I always try and remember the reports are usually written by a lower level, inexperience dr and they make mistakes.

    1. The mental health worker who assessed me was very sweet and professional, but seemingly too easy to trick/too inexperienced to see through my Oscar-deserving performance. My fault entirely.. instead of being truthful (which possibly would’ve led to me getting some sort of help) I just wanted out as quickly as possible and bullshitted my way through the assessment to make that happen. I just told her what I knew she had to hear to release me. Ah, well. Hope you’re keeping well, B xx

      1. Hey,

        Unfortunately I completely understand that! Still, sorry you had to experience what you did. I’m okay.  Was wondering if I could ask you a favour… I’ve written something that is either really good or total shite, I can’t decide.  Would I be able to send it across to you somehow?  I trust your opinion.  But if not it’s more than fine, I won’t hold it against ya ;) Also sorry if this msg comes through twice, am on the Tube.

Tell me what you think!
