Q, I'm sorry to hear of your "sectioning" if that's how they call it where you live. Around these parts "sectioning" sounds more like something you do to a grapefruit.

I went out on a date once with a guy in an acute psychotic episode. He insisted that I pick him up. I found him wandering blocks away from his house. muttering. Then he insisted that we rent a particular movie for its piano score. And then he started to tell me about how he had just threatened to kill his mother with a machete (produced the machete) (or is that my imagination). then the ambulance and his parents showed up. Thank GOD I was "babysitting" my little brother who ended up calling the cops while I kept the date distracted (saying a lot of "uh huhs" and "of courses")

His Dx- schizophrenia secondary to traumatic brain injury, though, if you ask me, he was already prodromal before the accident.

I have had psychotic features myself. Mine are terrifying. Asking me to take big knife and disembowel myself and I end up in a big argument, and can see and feel and smell the mess. it's schrecklich.


who doesn't want to be "sectioned" at least not on this side of the Atlantic
