Hospital...tw sexual assault.

I'm so scared of hospital right now. Not only because they won't let me home but because of the other patients.
And one of the guys sexually assaulted me here in the past and I can't cope with it. I can't deal with the thought of him let alone seeing his face when I was dragged through the door.

Oh gee, that's so scary @redhead!

 

It's important to tell your nurse about this, and if they don't respond in a way that you are happy with, then call an advocate and also make a complaint ASAP so you know there's some backup coming.

 

Are you able to do that at the moment?

Heya @redhead I definitely think @Ben-RO's idea is pretty spot on - have you been able to do this at all? How are you traveling at the moment?

I told my nurse, they just said to avoid said person.

@redhead that is totally understandable, does the hospital have a social worker etc around? We're here to listen too. What are you doing at the moment?

I tried to get on the exercise bike to relax but another patient kicked me off

@redhead I am so sorry you're feeling super isolated and couldn't use the bike. Are you on your phone at the moment? There's this awesome app called Breathe2Relax, have you used this one? It's like a portable stress management tool, does a bit of diaphragmatic breathing. If you're interested the link is here [click].

 

When do you think you'll be leaving Hospital?

Re: Hospital...tw sexual assault.

I'm on my phone.
I don't know when I'll be able to leave there's a new Dr on the ward, and when he saw me today it seemed like I'll be here a while. Smiley Sad

I'm heading to bed soon so I'll check it out tomorrow
