My Experience in The Mental Institution
"I am bipolar. A couple of years ago I committed myself to a mental hospital for a medicine adjustment. I did not have good medical insurance so they treated me like trash. They took me off all my medicine for three days and made me wait in a room with about 50 people that screamed all night. After all this, I was told that my insurance would not let me stay anywhere with an actual psychiatrist. Apparently this is going on all over the USA. This is a painting of my experience, how it made it feel. I came for help and they gave me pain."
