This is about the time Sigflup spent in a mental hospital for paranoia. This is a personal log that takes place just after sigflup regained the ability to talk. You can find a by-foot made map of the psych-ward here:

Thanks

sigflup,

Thanks for your openness and sharing your story - having family members that have had similar experiences I understand that it is a different world in there. I wish you all the best in the recovery process.

Thanks for sharing

Hello,

Thank you a lot for sharing this. Listening to you describing your state and surrounding was a fascinating experience.

It reminded me of in-computer-game audio logs, like the ones in "System Shock 2" and "Amnesia" for example. (Warning: both these titles or screenshots, videos and descriptions of their content might act as triggers)

Best wishes for feeling better and glad for you to not having to stay in there longer. I hope that talking openly about the events, as you did in this post, leads to more relief.
