my mental hospital diary

What starts off as bad poetry and sloppy doodles turn into my most recent journey through different treatment centers. After being hospitalized eight times, I decide to document my thoughts and experiences of being in treatment. The raw truth of what it’s like for me being in an adolescent inpatient center and residential treatment center . Welcome to my journey of recovery

Chapter 1

entry #1

i’m here again

i keep coming back

no matter how hard i try to stay away

i want to say this is the last time

but i’ve said that before and i’ll probably say it again

hospitals are weird

they’re weird because most of the so called “healing” you do comes from the people around you,

not the therapy groups you’re forced to go to

hospitals are weird

they’re weird because we’re all sick

but not the kind of sick you can see on the outside

yet, it’s not hard for us to see it on the outside of our peers

from noticing the change in people’s voices

to how they start to clench their fists when something bad is said

we notice because we’re sick too

hospitals are weird

they’re weird because you’re disconnected from everything

you’re taken away from your life

you don’t know what’s happening outside of this building

everything keeps happening

and you’re expected to jump right back in when you get out

and here i am again

i keep coming back

no matter how hard i try to stay away

and this is the last time i’m coming back
