When they first put me in the mental hospital they shot me up with Haldol. I would pace the floor and constantly talk to myself. It did make me stop pacing the floor and stopped me talking at no one all the time. But they are cruel about it in mental hospitals.
I am sorry u had a bad experience in the mental hospital.There are good ones around....I was in an awful one when I was transferred to the most supportive institution u could imagine....I recovered so much quicker there, it was like a hotel where my family could join me for meals and they gave patients some dignity.I hope you are feeling better now.
