"lovely people"

It would be nice if there was somewhere to hang up my coat because that would make me feel welcomed and like I was at home. I would like to flush the toilet without breaking a nail, but another woman taught me how to do this. It would be nice to have my phone charger and be able to sleep with my favourite Kate Bush song on. Apparently I can kill myself with a phone charger, so it must be dangerous and why I need to stay awake. I have had to hand in some essential grooming products because they are "self harm"; I voluntarily gave up my hair "sectioning" clips as they must be very dangerous. I needed an eye mask "ligature" the other night but I need someone to explain to me if this means my eyes are harmful or not; I feel slightly confused, but as I'm under a section 2 I don't have "capacity" so I can't tell... All the lovely people are amazing but I have to avoid them a bit because they keep feeding me cake, and I don't want to get fat but I'm not sure of the difference between "self care" or "self harm" so I really couldn't tell you! ;-)
