Im in the psych ward. I dont really feel like I need to be there. Its a scary place.

I hear and see weird things when Im there. There are lots of spiders. I feel the sensations on my skin when they crawl on me. My roommate doesnt like me. They tell people about it.

I want to listen to music. I cant use the radio though. I threatened to hit my roommate with it. They were annoying me.

Im not sleeping well either. I stay up all night most of the time. I was also shaking two nights earlier. I am wetting the bed too. It must be nerves.

I want to leave. My parents say I cant.

I'm sorry you're going through this.

It's a blessing you can still write us from the hospital.

You want to get out. I'd like to get in there forever, but they say I can't be internalized on a voluntary basis.

Some forms of medication can cause hallucinations. You might explain this problem with the doctors in the psych ward and ask for medication without this side effect.

Yeah, those spiders sound like hallucinations. The experience of imaginary insects crawling on your skin is called formication (not forNIcation, forMIcation!). It is related to certain drugs or withdrawing from other drugs. Discuss with docs.

I'm sorry you're having a rough time. Try to learn what you can there, despite your discomfort.

Dear Likemusic,

Try to keep in mind that all things pass.

I know it's not fun, but it's the safest place to be with psychosis.
