You seem to accept the mistreatment those in the situation gave you like: someone saying you should quit trying to be a doctor, being forcibly drugged, infantilized, being put into a locked room, being transported far away, being bored. You don’t seem to be aware of the humane alternative that a crisis respite offers, an unlocked facility with peer workers. But more importantly, at a minimum, the treatment of people in crisis should be improved in ERs, since there are still not enough crisis respites at present. There is no reason to treat anyone the way you were treated. Its because of the characterizations of crazy people that lead hospital staff to degrade people in crisis that are not challenged or held accountable.
