Did any of you ever come across a feeling of solidarity amongst the patients, who often considered the staff as "the other" and tried to bait them and upset their carefully constructed plans to "care for" us? Like playing madder than we were, or deliberately not collaborating in group meetings. Or painting really wild pictures, full of blood and flames to frighten the student OT's. Looking back, this understanding amongst ourselves, on the far side of the locked doors and bars, was a great, anarchic form of sanity. Or does that sound really whacky?
