‘You want to be here.’
This is a phrase said to patients by nurses, in a mental hospital.
The difficulty is..I know for certain that we do not want to be in that situation.
I do not know how this has happened, but at some point, Nurses begin to believe that we all want to be in a mental hospital.
That we can’t wait to pack so we can be admitted.
Most patients dread an admission, and would prefer to be offered another option, another form of support.
