Wow Bumblebeeee ...... such a moving poem! It's very strange when you look back as in spite of this being the beginning of your recovery, leaving the mbu, you were able to put pen to paper and write from your heart.

Although I wasn't in a mother and baby unit I also wrote poetry but it wasn't kept as my recovery took so long. I would like to think I too might have written such a poem, even to myself, as I needed a way out which nearly cost my life too.

What a star ....... thank you. ❤️️

Thank you. I found my old notebook which is full of poems from the mbu. It’s so strange looking back at them all now I’m in such a different place. I was fully convinced they were plotting to kill me when I was in there so most of them are about the drs and death 😪 it’s crazy what your mind can do to you! I feel like I’ve recovered so much from the awful thoughts I was having my whole life was based around them. I’m in such a different place now 🥰

Hello Bumblebeeee

I agree, it is crazy what our minds can do ..... and how much control PP had over our thoughts and actions. I'm so glad that you are in such a different place and have recovered so much. Take care.
