It’s not just another normal day in The Priory today –
The door on the ward has been opened! No fob or bell or permission needed to enter or exit.
They opened the door today because there is no one on the ward that is at risk of absconding – feels like a landmark day.
The staff and patients all seem brighter, happier that more trust has been given both ways. More of my freedoms have been increased, more privileges endorsed. Today is a landmark day.
The simple symbolism of an open door, representing freedom and liberty. How glad it makes ones heart feel to know that despite being on a section 3, I’m not held in captivity. Today is a landmark day.
