Default Re: Have you ever been restrained at the hospital?

I have been hospitalized for mental health reasons at least 10+ times,
I can only remember being restrained twice... but that doesn't necessarily mean that I haven't been restrained more than that.... Those are just the times I remember

Five times. First being when I was 18 and the last being a couple months ago. I don't really have any stories because usually I just wake up in four-point wondering what the hell happened.

I was restraint when I ran away from it all and then they gave me toast & tea when I got into my pj's. ANd asked me if I wanted a cigarette they were terribly nice to me compared to the other unit i was in they held onto me when I ran away to get drunk and they strapped me into the car and said safe home now!! kinda bit annoying when they used a lazer gun at me when I ran from again,a diffrent home my heart I htought was failing me.

I am lucky to say I just witnessed other people in restraints - I only have been in seclusion twice (the longest was 7 days) - and they made it hell for me - to stop me from doing what I did again which did not work... It just traumatized me and shut me up - I will never go back to that place voluntarily ever again or seek help. And no, I could not do anything about that, since I was sectioned.

I had my legs restrained the other day during surgery. I think so I wouldn’t fall. It sure brought back memories though.

I had a psychotic episode while in a hospital for kidney failure. I knocked over some nurses while I was trying to get away they told me. I have no memory of it. I woke up chained to a hospital bed for three days until I was transferred to a mental hospital.

I was having a psychotic episode and was restrained during my first hospitalization. The staff held me down on the bed and injected me with Benadryl. I felt awful after that. I remember not being able to feel emotion. It was a very hectic time, mind-wise.

A blood pressure med caused me to keep falling over, so I was restrained several times while in inpatient over something I had no control over.

Yes I was restrained once in hospital . it was second time in hospital for mental health . I just couldn't break out if the depression I was in . Since I was a teen I would cut myself ,tho those cuts werent suicide attempts . no one knew for years as I would cut where my clothes covered and take care of cuts myself .
Hospital situation changed things . they forgot to take a key ring I had in my jacket ....I straightened it one day and went in bathroom to cut my arm . alot people then didn't understand and I didn't know how to explain why I would cut myself .
I used the straightened key ring to make cuts in my upper arm when all if a sudden it seemed a the make workers came into bathroom to see what I was doing . they found key ring I straightened . asked if I did anything . I said no .
The shirt sleeve covered the cuts .
They took me to TV room .
A few minutes later a couple of them came in to see my arms . they saw the cuts .
I don't know what happened next but they brought me to a room near the front desk ,I thought I was being punished for having feelings of depression and hating life ....my Dad punished me for those feelings when I was young.... I was always being punished ...this time they strapped my arms and legs to a gurney like bed in that Room and gave me some kind of shot that knocked me out for what seemed like a day .
They were doing their job I wasnt mad at them , I was always mad at myself tho .
I know I didn't hurt anyone but after they saw the cuts I was just so angry at myself .
