Hi, has anyone had any experience of reading their hospital notes from being inside a psyc or Mother and Baby unit?
I sent away a request form for my notes because there were a lot of things that happened (or may have not happened !) that I still can't reconcile in my mind. I have been sectioned in the same awful psychiatric ward twice (once with PPP after the birth of my son, and once with psychosis brought on by lack of sleep 2 years later when I was under a lot of stress at work) and both times were very traumatic as I'm sure lots of people here can relate to. I have particular clear memories of being outside in the garden at night for hours trying to escape and being dragged back in, and would really like to see the staff's interpretation of this.
My hospital notes arrived several weeks ago and I haven't opened the envelope yet. I'm not sure why but the timing has not seemed right.
Does anyone have any advice in relation to this?
Thanks in advance.
