Depends on why they decide they are treating/ what they can get money for... Some are forced to stay in bed.
@VIVANT nah i been to two before. They give you time to do nothing in your room. My mom brought me a puzzle as I request it and my books to read. It was fun having a time for myself with nothing to worry about. I did puzzle and study for my driver test. Then we would have lunch and thearpy and then pills and sleep
But that in the afternoon. At my first hospital I was allowed to do nothing all day or I was force to do one thing. I still love their hospital food! It was always good
Unfortunately, I experienced this a few times before. 3 to be exact. They were all different hospitals, but at each of them, we were allowed only like one hour of personal time in our room per day. The rest of the day, we were required to be out on the unit or doing group activities. They don't have enough staff to monitor people who are in their rooms. I think that's the main reason for that rule. Many people in mental hospitals are suicidal and things like that, so they're not too enthusiastic about leaving patients unattended for long periods of time. I guess you got lucky at the ones you were in, Apple. The ones I went to did nothing but stress me out even more than I was to begin with.
I was in one for almost a year as a teenager, and then two adult ones.
Oh wow! I never been to the adult ones only in the teen one. We were force to do group thearpy and some kinda of art thing! I spent my whole summer in The hospital. The second time I was around more people my age teenagers and they suck. I still had to leave my bed and do activities. At a certain point I was okay! I like doing arts and crafts and beading. It was relaxing and puzzle. I like chatting with the girl group. I hate quite time for 1 hour but I did puzzle and read romantic twlight garbage. Lol
To me it was so nice like a vacation. But I hate waking up in the morning!
I even got my own room at one point and that was nice with a shower!
But like I wasn’t allowed to take long showers. I sometimes forgot I was in a hospital when the hot shower hit. Lol 😂 it was like my private room I never had. Yes, I wish I could have my room back. I recall asking for warm blankets
No. It’s a mental hospital
Yes and there aren't enough beds in Mental Hospitals.You are taking resources that someone else needs.That's evil at best and lazy at worst
Nope just depressed but I understand
Honestly I tired to date one of the other teen boys when I went as a teen myself. But beside that nothing happen. I end up getting a butt shot when I went a little crazy throwing chairs for no reason. And cried and then I end up in a prison room and another girl went inside. We sang the mountain songs and I meet wacky characters. Lol 😂
The second time was more isolated and not as fun. I got a bigger room with one girl. The food was bomb and i just play bingo and arts and craft with adults
The first time seemed interesting indeed! I know I had a crush on one of the girls there but nothing came out of it. I had long hair back then (early twenties) and the girls there thought 💭 it would be fun to dress me up like one of them. Being the idiot that I was back then, I said yes. It was funny because the staff got confused. They didn’t know who I was lol.
True, but unfortunately I didn’t meet my bad boy emo boy. Lol 😂 and that’s a good thing!
In the hospital I went to we couldn’t talk to the boy! How did you do that?
I guess mine didn’t care if we all mingled lol. I was emo at one point in my life. I actually still listen to hawthorn heights and taking back Sunday lol. I had the tight shirts, the studded belt, the wristbands, the skater shoes, the black hair, and black nail polish. Good times back then. I would go to hot topic all the time. I can still do the screamo stuff at my age! I’m an odd one!
😊 aww i still do Those things. Lol 😂 listen to the same band (-: I think 90s music was a bop lol 😂 I never got to dressing like a punk emo chick because I was too depressed to try. All I did was wear comfortable clothes.
I literally thought I was going to meet another depressed sucidial. Emo guy and do stupid stuff. But I don’t think it would have made me feel any better.
90s music was just “meh.” Limp Bizkit was cool and I really didn’t get into Korn. It wasn’t until the 2000s that I really got into rock and hard rock and now metal or metalcore. Had I found an emo girl back then, I’d have been happy lol.
I think that would be cool still lol. But I get that two depressed sucidial people don't make a right.
I think I always like punk rock that was more depressing than anything. lol Then I moved into a mature level of just soft indie music and rain music. lol To be young and angst... damn that takes me back.
Yeah, those were the good ol’ days. I still act crazy lol. I stay up late watching Kitchen Nightmares or some horror movie on Hulu or Netflix and wake up early. I listen to Octane and Liquid Metal on Sirius XM. On the other hand, nothing can top Chicago and the great Peter Cetera.
Wow! lol I didn't know It was still possible to meet some emo kid at my old age. I am probably going to start dating at 45... lol
It’s definitely possible! I look at it this way: why should age dictate what you like and how you act? Who cares what society thinks, just be yourself is what I say.
damn that my dream convo when indie rock meet screamo.. Such a perfect combo of craziness. lol
That would definitely be crazy! To give you an idea, here are bands I listen to. All That Remains, Killswitch Engage, Knocked Loose, Slipknot, A Day To Remember, Silverstein, Impending Doom.
No blood valentine? Sound garden? PuP? I listen to french for rabbits and moving mountains and Cende. I like all of them but I am more into calm relaxing music! I was never introduce to metal and if I was I just listen to the radio metal
Do you mean Bullet For My Valentine? They’re ok but I kind of lost interest in them after that album, Fever. I think that’s what it was called. No, I mainly listen to hard rock. I will do classic rock like Def Leppard though. For relaxing music, I have listened to classical. In fact, I have a Mozart album digitally. Where I’m at most everyone listens to that god awful country stuff. It’s so depressing when I hear the lyrics.
Oh wow that sucks
My taste in music? 🙃
No that everyone listen to country music
Lol. They mostly do. Have heard hard rock being played but that’s like seeing a unicorn in my city. It’s country and rap that people like. I like the 80s and hard rock/metal.
oh wow. That might be too old for me. Its hard to look back that far for some reason.
Ha ha. The 80s were the best. I’m sure we’re killing everyone’s notifications. Message me sometime if you want!
Nah it’s actually my question
What was the question?
