Hospital Stay

After three months of an in-patient stay, I am thoroughly sick of hospitals. In an out of restraints and room seclusion innumerable times, on one-to-one with a sitter for weeks, having more than 13 ECT treatments, half by court order and deemed necessary by my sister and conservator, it was a miserable time all around right up to the last day there. I emphatically do not recommend it! I would like to get back to regularly blogging, but for now simply want to announce that I am home and ready to resume where I left off. I did do a radio interview by phone while at St Raphael�s, with Bill Lichtenstein�s INFINITE MIND series. You can find it by doing a google search for Infinite Mind, then once at the Welcome screen, doing a search for �FOUR LIVES� and clicking on the link that allows you to listen on-line. Any feedback from listeners will be greatly appreciated. My twin sister and I are featured in the second half of the hour-long show. But for now, here endeth my 14th blog entry, short as it is, with promises to resume at greater length ASAP. Glad to be home and back on-line!

Hey, just started reading this today, since I'm doing a research report on schizophrenia and stuff. Very interesting. *nods* You're a very talented writer.

Oh, and it's good to see that you've gotten a bit better. Seems like you've got some difficult stuff to go through, but I'm sure you kick enough ass to make it. *thumbs-up*

I had paranoid schizophrenia for seven years too, but I was never in hospital. 13 ECTs is a lot! Glad that you are finally out of hospital and back to the comforts of your home. Thanks for your honest sharing on the internet, it helps other people who read it. Smile alwiz, Lilian

Glad to hear that you back again! It would be interesting to get some information how you experienced the ECT treatment. Personally, I have never tested it.
