"Fear of being admitted."

Anything else?

On one occasion I was staying in the Harplands Hispital and I left the ward. A group oif nurses and a nursing assistant came after me and asked me to return to the ward. Although I was confused and scared, I co-operated. However a nusre and a male nursing assistant held my hands and arms to restrain me whilst I walked back to the ward. The nursing assistant also had my hand bent in some sort of wrestling lock. It was very painful and I asked him to release me from this lock because he was hurting me. He responded by bending my hand even further. I flinched with pain and inbstinctively tried to break free. This resulted in my being wrestled to the floor, and my arns, body and legs were pinned down. After what seemed like a long time , but was probaly five or so minutes, I felt my trousers and underpants being pulled down and I was injected with something. My doctor and CPN want me to voluntarliy go to the Harplands but I am terrified of the place,
