A 41 year old man went psychotic due to Covid 19 and was admitted to St Thomas's hospital in London, later being sectioned under the mental health act.
He's since recovered but he had an awful 20 day ordeal, as did his wife who had to listen to him divulge numerous secrets about his previous sexual encounters.
I've included a link to the BMJ as opposed to the salacious gutter press.
I was taken to hospital on the 4th April with what I would describe as the worst headache of my life. At this time, I had been suffering with the symptoms of COVID-19 for over a week. As the ambulance came, I confessed to my wife that I had sex with men (most of which before marriage), although I am heterosexual. I felt that I was incapable of lying or hiding the truth and thought I was dying.
I was in hospital for a total of 20 days with psychosis and mania, which I experienced as fascinating. This may seem strange from an outside perspective, but I was, in my mania, trying to help the doctors as much as I could, while at the same time trying to make sense of my condition. I began to think that I was part of a TV show, in which I was sent back from the future to save the NHS, and I was curious to see how this would end.
For my family and friends it was frightening. Luckily, they had a lot of support from each other, and from the great team of doctors at St. Thomas hospital.
