Going through the experience of being in a mental hospital was one of the most difficult things I have ever gone through. Although it is not something that I would want to relive, it was an experience that led me to a much healthier place mentally.
When first entering the hospital I felt scared and overwhelmed. The days seemed to blur together in my mind as I navigated through uncharted waters. There were lots of activities meant to help with anxiety, depression, and other issues related to mental health. Working on art projects, journaling and having therapy sessions began to slowly open up new possibilities for me, even though it was hard work.
The support from people in group therapy sessions was also instrumental in my recovery. Hearing other people’s stories gave me faith that I too could get better. Knowing that even though we were all there due to our difficult situations, we were all going through similar experiences made me feel like I wasn’t alone and made the journey seem less daunting as well.
Looking back on this part of my life as a whole makes me grateful for the progress and resilience I displayed during such a trying time. It is definitely not easy at times but with patience and support anything can be conquered!
