Anonymous Story (XIV)

"When I Came Back"

I was put in a mental hospital at the age of 12 because of a suicide attempt. In total, I was hospitalized twice for the same reason, but that’s besides the point. There was a time that I was talking to a nurse before I left, I was getting in trouble for talking to another patient. She told me “when I came back” that I will be isolated. What hurt the most was that she expected me to come back. I’m 15 now, I haven’t been hospitalized since I was 13. I’m still struggling, maybe worse than I was when I was hospitalized, but I’m never going back to the psych unit.
