This morning I was taken to A&E to get my retention sorted, by the time I got seen I was in acute retention. I required a catheter, IV fluids, IV painkillers and antibiotics. Now as far as I am concerned it should never have got to that point, I told them last night I was in retention, after not peeing all day, I am on a 1:1 they had watched me struggle to pee all day. I was denied water last night because I wouldn’t drink my 10pm milk. I NEEDED WATER.
Any ways I am back at the unit having had my catheter removed, I have a course of antibiotics to complete, I have told them I NEED more water, but so far that hasn’t happened, the milk argument will start in 20 mins.
Earlier I got myself in such a state that I put my coat and shoes on and asked to go out, much to the horror of my male 1:1 nurse, any ways after lots of arguing and tears they said if I insisted on leaving I would be sectioned. Now I came here as a voluntary patient, I have learnt the hard way to avoid sectioning at all costs, so once I calmed down I went back to my bed, had a bloody good cry, phoned my Dad and cried some more, had a hug from my room mate and cried even more. I have been asking for PRN in 7pm and nothing, I am not in a good way at all mentally. I feel like nobody is listening to me at all.
I have my ward round tomorrow, things had better improve after that, other wise I have no idea how I am going to cope.
