I hate going to bed crying. Almost every night in Westwood Lodge psych ward i cried. I felt SO lonely, so cold, so abandoned. The world didnt freeze, life went on. I didnt matter.
People all over the world were at clubs, parties, chilling with friends and family, not a care in the world.
What about me? I was in a tiny room with no heat in the middle of winter.
I had to wear my coat to bed.
I dont want sympathy.
I want to raise awareness..
If i could rate that ward it would be a 2 out of 10. Did they not care the thermostat read 52 degrees.
Then i found 2S psych ward. It was the opposite. I was trusted there. I had an air conditioner and a heater in my room. The blankets were soft and warm. The staff cared.
We need more wards like 2S. Nobody deserves to be in Westwood Lodge.
