and of course you would react if you left your pets home alone, not knowing what is happening for you. The person you told over-reacted, you never did, in my opinion anyway. Animals are precious beings as we are also.

They are so rude and stupid! I went to one because I had self harmed from not being able to sleep and instead of the hospital taking me in I had to go to the psychward. I tried explaing to them it wasnt a psychiatric issue after 1 month in the hospital with a total of 10 hours sleep max they finally let me go but they put me on an injection of schziophrenia meds and I dont have that and must take it every month. Every night they pumped me up with phenobarb to try to get me to sleep. They even almost court ordered ECT! All because I wasnt falling asleep. Wth!! Im so sorry. I kept saying I cant sleep why arent you sending me to the regular hospital unit and they said your vitals are stable. No! They were not my heartrate was 126 at resting. Not mormal. The staff was so rude. Making jokes and being jerks. I really do wish I knew how to get them back for that.

This sounds like an absolute nightmare.

My heart broke quite a bit for you when the nurse said she was going to call animal control. Maybe she didnt mean anything by it but wow... I cant imagine being taken away from your life and then expressing a concern and having someone basically start taking things away from you. I have pets, and I know that right there is where I would have absolutely lost it.

I think nurses and doctors and the medical profession needs to remember hat people with mental illness are people too. Just trying to do the best that they can, and not intentionally “causing trouble for no reason”. The only reason I have EVER caused anything REMOTELY ABLE TO BE CALLED trouble is when I was in intense pain and terrified because I didnt understand what was happening to my mind. To take someone in that state and antagonize them to any extent, even minor ones, is sickening to me.

Anyways. I hope you are doing better since this, and I am really sorry this was your experience

I'm so sorry, Laurie. I think the mental health system is mentally ill.

This is one of our worst fears for all of us. I believe that those really in the know make a big distinction between planning it or not planning it. If you you folks tell someone you think you can trust, be sure to mention that and that that is an industry standard. This person undoubtedly though they were doing the right thing.
Suicide rates have been rising according to the CDC, and moreso among certain populations. However, there is no excuse for this.
Laurie I have missed your posts. Hang in there, girl! Hugs!

This used to be my biggest fear until it was realized. I have a friend who is also mental ill who used to drink with me before I quit drinking. He supplied me with alcohol one night before he went to work knowing I was in a very bad place but I had requested alcohol and he obliged. Early morning came. Like 3 am and I'm oblivious still communicating and a hear someone pounding on my door. I have no idea what's going on but it clears my head a bit. I answer and it's 3 cops out on my 2nd floor deck. The push their way in and I go back to my kitchen and light a cigarette. They bombard me with questions about suicidal thoughts, being watched, taking pills, and drinking myself to death. I'm confused because I don't remember making any statements like that I had just been talking with my friend and listening to music. Yes I was in a bad way and drinking but I wasn't killing myself. I tried to talk to the officer and offer my phone for reference but I was dismissed and told to butt my smoke and go to the cruiser to go to the hospital. Which I promptly refused. He then yanked my cigarette away and crushed it out on my floor and physically struggled with me to put the handcuffs on. Which went on way too tight. Painfully tight. Obviously I had been drinking like I said and this confused me and made me extremely angry. He shoved me into the back of the car and shut the door on me, then shoved me in more and slammed the door again. We got to the hospital and I was not released from the cuffs. They sat me there for quite a while. When I was finally released there was dried blood around my wrists on both hands from where the cuffs dug in. The doc finally came to see me when they determined I was no longer drunk and asked for my side of what happened and I was basically dismissed with that's not what the officer said, that's not what the caller said. I told them to get my phone for proof and they wouldn't hear of it. My own psychiatrist stopped the move to a psych ward because she knew I was no danger and knew I had no history of suicide. My supposed trusted friend put me in a very hostile and scary situation just because his perception was off the mark. And he knew I was drunk! He dropped off the booze!! And the supposed threats to self? Song lyrics.. I named the singer in the text..
