The voices rose and whispered to me
to roll my clothes and bed linen into knots.
They said I had the power of god
to create strange things with the cloth.
The nurses found me screaming prayers,
pulling a blanketed rope around my throat,
and dragged me down to lock-up for the night.
From my most recent psychiatric hospitalisation. I was psychotic (due to type 1 bipolar disorder) and also had lithium poisoning, which was very dangerous.

The nurses found me hallucinating. They said I was attempting to strangle myself in the middle of the night. I was put into solitary confinement.

URG Solitary. But better than one-on-ones. Those are the WORST. Creepy much? Yes, I love to have you sit in a chair and stare at me while I try to sleep. Makes my stay so much more comfortable. Thanks. :D
