I am the guy who went in the psychiatric ward. I went in December involuntarily due to my mom I stopped taking my medicine. I am bipolar and have been
out for 7 months but I am listening to every word and advice being said which I appreciate very much. I will most likely see another psychiatrist the
thing is my mom really likes this one. It is not getting worse but it is like the same, everyday is hard. I have more info and details about what's
going on and will go into it if need be I am just seeing if anybody or anybody knows any information or if they think something has happened to them
or somebody they know

So you see things that aren't seen by other people in the room. And you have a regimen with a psychiatrist. Some things are unavoidable but it's
how you react to what is happening that matters. I'm not a doctor. Sometimes believing that you have the right to your own mind and it's
perceptive oddities, self acceptance, in the first step to an illness-free life.
Doctors are like mechanics; some of them are rip off artists and some of them really take care of you. So find a few doctors to talk to before
investing everything into one of them.
Have you tried meditation into calming your mind? Making a log of what you saw, what was there when you saw it, time and day, and how you felt.
There may be a pattern.
But have a routine for the next time this happens. Call a mental health center and talk to someone over the phone. Call your doctor, tell them, hey
guess what, it happened again, these pills don't do ****. You might have to change your diet too. If you changed by eating pills you can change the
other stuff you eat.
Have a thought process to sort things out. There is a big bug in the room, what do I do? Can I think it away, call in imagination, or a bad dream?
Sometimes people's minds distort the truth. Okay, a lot of times, especially on GLP. There may be a little bug in the room and part of your
perceptions see it bigger than life. I saw a big fluffy black thing once, maybe as big as a football, crawling across the floor one night, and it
weirded me out (omg big invisible spider bigger than life); and about 15 seconds later a real spider was walking there (maybe the spider was thinking
about where to go and I picked up on its aura). Consciousness is weird, but all living things have it, and sometimes our minds go where they are not
trained to go. You should see the stuff William Blake saw and drew picures of when he was alive. Can you imagine there are people processing this
weird stuff all day long and it does not bother them?
But to answer your question, yeah you can get a negative reaction from staying in a mental hospital. Have you seen those TV shows that investigate
haunted old hospitals? Energy sticks to locations sometimes, and when you're there you stew in it. Mental hygiene is important.
