        @joshkels how for 7 hours most say the shortest stay is 3 to 5 days not counting weekends or holidays but that if your on a hold. Other that you can stay til your doctor there thinks your stable

          @laceyandme My mom sent me to one because a friend told her that you could get prescription fast over there. I had a job that I had to go to outta the country for and forgot to get my welbutrin and so I went to check it out. They sat me down asked me a bunch of questions took my belt and phone and othe pocket items and then brought be into a giant white room. A guy was crying in the corner rocking. And another was pacing talking to the air. Idk It was crazy. And then I had to sit for 7 hour and the psychiatrist came snd saw me. And cleared me after a long conversation. Lol it was long but I got my meds lol

      Yes been hospitalized 27 times been to 8 different hospitals and been in them to 11 days all yhe way to 6 months. Ive over does or cut myself really bad. Ive attacked staff and have try to kill myself in a mental hospital. Til i was on the floor passed out. Ill been in restaints and had sedative shots. Ive at one time had to take thorazine shots 3 times a day for 5 days cause i was acting out so much. At least that why the nurse practitioner said but when the doctor came back he stop the order. Ive seen people pee in trash cans. Ive seen people try to get naked. Ive know this one chick who would whip themselfs but instead of keeping it in the toliet she throw it in the trash can nasty.

      They kept on taking blood symbols from me everyday but found nothing. Of course. Because I have never did that. I don't even use drugs.

      Because I have been to been to one and I stayed there for a week because of a suicide attempt. But they try to keep me there for longer because they thought I was taking cocaine and heroin. Both of those I have never done nor do I know how to get it.
