Hi dg,

I'm sorry but I don't know much about hormone levels. I'm also sorry that this is causing you to feel poorly. But with your positive spirit, I think you can get through this difficult time. I know you have a much longer thread about the specifics of your issue that I am probably much too far behind on, but I hope you are receiving the medical care you need to address the problem. If you aren't, hang in there, as I know how it feels to not receive the treatment you are needing.

Find the simple joys in life. They are usually the most important things anyway.

NW :-)

Hi Ive tried to have a talk to my mother tonight,but as usual she just keep's changing the subject. As in "oh dear ur sister's not well at all and im so worried" i asked her what was wrong for her to be so worried and her reply was "she has a swollen gum" and that's her main concern!!!!  Ive tried to write letter's but they didn't work,ive tried talking but that doesn't work and im trying not to speak to either of them as im so angry with them and they act like nothing is wron. well do they have another thing coming.
and NW thankyou for ur reply and i will have a chat in a day or two if that's ok with you?? Thx again to all.

He said i can put you in against ur will and that's what i should really do because if something happen's to you i will be liable?? Can they just put me in there even though i dont want to.
Dont i have a say in the matter??? Uve been an inpatient alot like me but ive never come across a doc to ut me in against my will?? What should i d???

Any help from other's in the same boat?????

Beverly,
 
I am not positive, but if you are sure that the doctor is going to admit you, and you have a choice, I think, (THINK) that if you admit yourself, you have more choices as to when you leave.  I am not positive about this, Jamie knows more than I do about the legalities of these matters.  Do you think he is admitting you because of your manic behavior?  You might do well to have your meds adjusted in a controlled environment.  I know that you have really been struggleing with everything.  So try not to get frightened.  This could be the best thing that has ever happened.  You can get away from your situation at home and do some thinking and make some decisions.  Try to go with the situation and get what good you can out of it.  You really are in a tough situation right now and I think that you do need a break.   But I really think if you self admit, you can leave when you want to.  NOT POSITIVE OF THIS... 
 
There have been other members that have stayed on healingwell during their hospital stay.  So if you go in, make sure to stay in touch with us.  We will keep you company throughout your stay.  But take care of you first.  That is most important.  That is the advice that you often give, follow it with your heart. 
 
I think that you have been carrying a heavy burden Beverly.  And I really think it is time that you get a break.  So this just might be for the best.   Remember, what you say, take care of you.
 
Keep us posted.  Email me if you feel you need to.  I am off work for two more days and I will be sure to answer.  Providing computer is working good.  I don't know if it is the forum or my computer, but it is awful slow.  Have you been haveing any troubles like that?  Let me know.
 
I am getting a computer chip to give me more memory, but I am scared to put the chip in.  I guess you have to be really careful as not to mess up the computer.  I don't know, I would like santa to bring me a new computer.  But that remains to be seen. 
 
Take care Beverly,
 
Please post again
 
Hugs, Karen

  1. yes they can, providing you meet the criteria to be an involuntary patient.

criteria,

1. unable to be treated safely in the community and your mental illness needs immediate treatment.

2. other peoples safety/property etc.

3. that you are deemed mentally unstable and will deteriorate.

4. a risk to yourself, self-harm/suicide

5. have refused treatment and unable to consent to less restrictive treatment.

 

within 24 hours you will be assessed as to wether you saty as an involuntary patient or not. karen is correct, if you go in voluntarily you will have more say and rights, furthermore you can discharge yourself at most facilities, moreover during improved treatment you will be able to have small leave requirements as well. usually as a part of discharge planning.

i will talk more about your rights as an invlountary patient later. please not if you go in voluntarily, your likely to be discharged a lot quicker. hope this helps. jamie

Damaged, I feel like I can relate to you. I have bipolar disorder and PTSD. I'm suffering from depression now.

In Aug. 2007, I had to have a total colectomy. My constipation stayed and in May of this year I had an ileostomy. It didn't work and I had emergency surgery in June. I was in the hospital for 52 days. Now I have an ileo tube running down my leg into a urine bag. I was just at Cleveland Clinic and they say that my small intestines are still in a knotted mess and it will be at least June of next year before I can have surgery for a traditional ileostomy.

I am very discouraged and depressed. It is hard to crawl out of where I am right now. I just want to be fixed and then left alone.

Hey Jamiee how's thing's going for you?? Are u feeling better yet with ur teething prob's. Thx for ur kind reply. Yes i will have to take thing's a little slower as this virus is really knocking me hard. Ive just finished a job that i did thismorning and im completely stuffed. And this house is very easy compared to the one that i have 2morrow again,which is 90 squares of living area 15squares of pool and spa area and a seven square garage and ther are only 2 adult's and 2 children in such a huge house. Personally i dont think people need a home that big??? So now ive gone from doing this house on a Friday each week to every wednesday & Friday's each week, so im getting to the point where im having to knock back other job's as im so busy. Last night i picked up another 2 job's in heelers Hill u should know where that is jamiee?? Anyway i now have 6 client's and am nearly working full time!!! "cant complain hey". Look after urself jamiee as ur a good guy,and u know how to cheer a person up!!!!!
