​While I was in the hospital I was physically forced to be there.  They put meds in my orange juice.  I was held against my will for six months.  They used restraints. it did not feel good. They sold my house.  They did not tell me they were selling my house.  I was forced to quit smoking and was placed with people who were mentally ill.  I am not mentally ill.

(Question from Interviewer): "Do you have a mental health diagnosis?"


Yes, I am diagnosed schizoaffective because I was the sole survivor of ten plane crashes and used to be a famous child star.
