Okay so I don't know what the MHW stands for and kind of stopped writing it with a few. Let's start from the morning. We wake up anytime that we want but the breakfast and morning group are announced through the P.A system. Most groups are announced this way. During any group there is no computer access, television, or phone usage. The fitness room is also typically locked during this time.

We have meds morning and night. Some people also have meds in the afternoon. I don't, well not so far anyway. We have no outdoor time because we are confined in about four different rooms. We have two conference rooms, a small outdoor garden, the day room we eat in, the lounge, and the two group rooms. One is for art and the other is for the other half. In groups we are split into two different groups. I typically get to be with my friends so it is fun even when the information is boring or stupid.

We are allowed to go back to bed at anytime during the day. At night there are a bunch of different nurses that are not as nice as the day shift ones. I'm sure it's just because I am so frustrated when I talk to them. I needed help desperately last night and they would not help me. I was so ******** pissed. It was a very bad night.

Our meals are all set in the morning the previous day. We get a bunch of choices. Each day is something different. For breakfast there usually isn't any type of choice. Snacks are also pretty slim pickings. I usually just take like one fruit.

I don't really remember what I was talking about here but there you go... our schedule for the day. We don't have to attend every group but without group there isn't much to do around here other than to dwell or sleep. I ain't doin neither of those.
