i just remember running. sometimes if they are going to discharge you and you don't want to be discharged there are things you can do so you get to stay. start kicking doors or bashing them with your head or something. seclusion isn't pretty but it can buy you another week. sometimes running helps. if they say you are discharged and you just bolt - you can usually get out the door (that a nurse is letting a patient / visitor in or out) and if you just bolt through then people usually chase you and tackle you and you get a shot of something before they have quite realized what is going on. can buy yourself another week. nobody tackled me. they went to and the p-doc yelled out 'leave her!!!' so i kept running... kept running... i remember knowing what i needed to do and being really scared... but knowing i needed to do it... looking both ways (didn't want to hurt others) i just... couldn't bring myself to do anything other than climbing over and then very gently... very gingerly... letting go (so landed on my heels).
