I did nothing wrong! Why handcuffs?

I had not committed any crime, I was detained under the mental health capacity act by the police!

I was restrained, handcuffed and legs in straps. I was then handcuffed to a hospital bed, for about 14 hours!

I did try to do a runner when I went to the toilet, although there was a nurse with me at all times. And the police following me. I was still handcuffed!

But

I had not committed any crime!

I felt like a criminal!

I’m so embarrassed.

I was in so much pain, my wrists were so swollen I could no longer wear my watch. I was also surrounded by pillows so I couldn’t hurt myself!

By the time I was released I had so many pains and bruises!

After 14 hours of hell I went in to a mental health act assessment which I passed and then was released home!

So much damage from the police.

TRIGGER WARNING, scars and bruises.

This was one of the worst experiences of my life.

I didn’t want to go to hospital, so the police came.

I was restrained for hours.

In the end I was handcuffed to a bed for over 14 hours!

I was in so much pain!

I was in a mental health crisis.
