In January 2015 I was sectioned in Bangkok after an acute psychotic breakdown in Krabi town. I made a miraculous journey back to England in February with my sister in order to receive treatment with the wonderful NHS. This is my story of recovery and mission to make it back to Thailand and rebuild my life.
Madam Noi is the name I was given by Thai nurses in Bangkok hospital mainly due to my refusal to take pills (it means ‘Little Madam’). They had to inject me in the end. Now I am on the mend I take my meds daily with full compliance. I admit now that I am ill. I am on a huge comedown after believing that I was 100 years old, could read every language and was on an important mission in cahoots with Russell Brand and RuPaul to bring world peace. The sad reality has finally dawned on me and I am now picking up the pieces of my broken life.
