Re: “Pinned Down

I was also at Cleo Wallace ..back in the 80's. I was a runaway child, I ran away from an abusive home..my counselor at the time talked me into choosing this place ( I had a choice between this place and a workforce type place..I had chosen the workforce place, but was told I would like this place better) in the end I was at Cleo Wallace. I was already a shy child, I had problems communicating with people, upon arrival they put me on something called social isolation (because of my history of running away) I had no problem with being isolated as I was very shy anyway..but a part of the social isolation was that I had to sit in a hard chair facing a wall 8 hours out of my day ..to insure I was not talking to anyone.. I could leave the chair to eat, and to join group where I could speak to others. If anyone walked by and talked to me while I was in this chair, this was seen as an aggressive act in my treatment, my chair would be taken from me, and I would have to sit on the floor.. if I tried to talk to the staff to tell them I didnt try to talk..I was thrown to the floor..by several adults climbing on top of me. The first time I fought back, as I felt I couldnt breath. The next two times I went limp right away so they would stop. There was a male staff member who would press himself into me..I could tell he was erect..he would also come into my room at night when he worked. I finally ran away from there during a medical appointment. I was one fo the lucky ones to get away. They did keep all of my personal items.. but it was worth the trade off..
