They laughed at me in the ambulance. The rescue worker and the doctor thought it was all a good joke; they said that it looked like I was expecting the red carpet rolled out where they were taking me. And this was my first contact with psychiatry.
Weeks later, I found out that I am sick with F20. Are you familiar with this old patients’ joke that our diagnoses sound like the updated models of the F-16 aircraft? This is all I was told, just the cold-served medical ID; the doctor must have assumed that it’s pointless to talk to someone in my condition. He did spend a bit more time talking to my family behind my back but they must have been of a similar opinion. And so, I found out what it meant through google. Can you imagine how frightened I was when F20 decoded turned out to be schizophrenia?
There was also this time when a policeman handcuffed me when I was at home, sitting on the sofa and watching TV. I was taken to the hospital again. The ambulance guy asked me if I was sure I needed to go to the hospital as I was making a lot of sense as far as he was concerned. I said I didn’t and that I didn’t want to go anywhere but then who would listen to me? This time they injected me with a sedative. I was stripped and dressed in a hospital gown. I was put in the canteen for the night. I slept on the mattress on the floor between the tables.
After this forced hospitalization my family had a great idea of legal incapacitation but then they gave it up.
These are just a few of the humiliations that the system routinely offers, but I didn’t get used to it. Altogether I was hospitalised four times. I am healthy now, but when I look at my experience from a bird’s eye view, I wish no one had to suffer from such a nightmare and I hope I won’t have to anymore either. In spite of my illness I have stayed professionally active. I am in a loving, understanding and enriching relationship. I have a wonderful circle of friends. I have my passion. I feel that my life is full, and this would not be possible if my own voice had not returned to me. This I owe to many different factors but the most important of them is the persistent and arduous work I have done myself. I had suffered a 5-year long nightmare, and today I hope that SOP is a questionnaire that will help us all to make sure the nightmare does not last that long for anybody.
