About 2003 or 2004 i was involentary commited to a mental.

Customer Question

Hello about 2003 or 2004 i was involentary commited to a mental ward. They had my brother and my mom sign me in and i ran out of the hospital as soon i found out what was happening. After that the police took me in. And they put a court order against me since that day till now. I have to see my psychiatrist every month for a 5 minute med talk. I was put into pych wards atleast 10 times involentary and forced to stay in them for 3 months or more each time. And they gave me shots and put me in harness chair with straps where my actions did not require so atleast 2 times. I have expressed concern with side effects of my medication with my doctor but she says ( you will just be in the hospital again if you don't take them). When i was first put into the phyc ward i had no sleep for 5 days and i told them i had sleeping problems. Yet a side effect of a medication they give me is it causes insomnia. They didn't give me anything to help sleep untill about 2 years ago. I hope you can help.
