Sorry for the delay in posting again.

Following on from my previous post, my mum was sadly sectioned that day under police orders.

She has been transferred back to our local mental health hospital, but we wish she was still in Norwich as she was getting better care. She is surrounded by alcoholics and drug addicts and there have been at least two incidents there since she arrived when they've had to call the police in to deal with the perpetrators. My dad said that whilst he wants her to get help, that ward is doing her more harm than good and she is becoming a nervous wreck.

I've been unable to visit since Wednesday as I have been struck down by a water infection and then a sinus infection and feel absolutely rotten. I've got no appetite and am having to force myself to eat even though I don't want to. I've hardly eaten in the last few days and have no energy, so I know I need to do something to keep my strength up.

Please forgive me for my lack of card making and blog visiting the past month or so, I will try and get back to normal soon.

    Oh Sarah, I'm so sorry to read how things have turned out. It's awful to think that your mum is in a place that really isn't helping her at all. My thoughts are with you & your family.

    I am sure card making is the last thing on your mind. You must try and eat though as you don't want to end up feeling poorly on top of everthing else. It doesn't sound like being in hospital is helping your mum much. I really hope she improves soon.

    Hi sarah, I am really sorry to hear what has been happening with your mum. It is probably for the bnest that she has been sectioned if she is at harm to herself and others however I really hope that she gets some better care which is what she needs at the moment. Have you spoke to them about her being transfered elsewhere? I think it is within your right to. I hope you are feeling better too, best wishes xxx
