Default Re: Stories about good/helpful inpatient experiences?

I love being inpatient I would live at my hospital if I could,I usually stay three months and have been going there for seven almost eight years.I have nicknames for all the staff and I had one great nurse who was spiritual and would talk to me for hours,but a lot of the staff are spiritual there,they were like a family - the staff.I fell in love with two of my psych nurses one was a hippy musician that would talk to me about goddesses and poetry.We have a nice yard and a radio that plays out there and I would dance wildly with my friend in the evenings,This is in Australia and the hospital is nice and new with your own big rooms and in nature,doesn’t cost anything either.I loved not having the web so I could paint or write poems,dance,read,listen to the radio.I always made great friends there,I like getting up to have tea in the mornings.I always get dressed early, and do better in hospital there is a good routine,lots of support and I feel safe which makes a big difference to me.
