I don't really know cuz I come from a crime environment so a patient being violent doesn't really faze me but since this is a pretty open center it creeps me out if one of them wakes up and suddenly stands in the door way in the middle of the night.

this is true, watched it happened to a friend of mine who smoked a lot, he has been in and out of a mental ward now and posts so much weird shit on facebook and youtube. it must of been in his genetics and all the drugs made it come out prematurely.

Granted most people here are teens there's not really much that screams disease but if I were to look at people here as fully developed adults that don't use these forums to escape reality for a brief second I'd say a scarily high percentage would seem like autism/aspergers symptom. Circumstances are everything.

2020-06-17 23:39
Well the mainly tasks is to interact with them, make sure they take the medicine, make sure they eat and keep their rooms clean. We humanize them and build a safe space so they have less manic/mental episodes while we also try to help them with being able to live alone in hopes that they can get well enough to move out (excluding people who're currently there instead of jail who at least will stay there until their sentence is over).

I've not been there long enough to where it should be possible to be affected but I have my suspicious towards some of the coworkers who seems to be unable to hold a conversations at times as a normal function human. In our center the patients have rooms (not cells) which they can move freely out of as they please. I've yet to see one person trigger an episode for another patient but they may get a bit uneasy, especially if the patient is screaming loudly or is violent.

It's more opposite, a couple patients seems perfectly fine but is currently serving prison sentence for murder with 0 sense of why they should feel bad for it. They're good at putting on fake masks at times.

So, the girl I am in love with for 6 years now didn't talk to me for more than 10 months. We have not been properly talking for more than 3 years. 2 days ago, I saw she was in one of my posts. I was like, wtf??!! I didn't know if she was alive or dead for so long and suddenly she appears like that?! Today I woke up feeling really bad, actually collapsing, after a bad dream involving her. Normally, I have breakdowns now and then but not because of her, it's because of what I feel about life. Decided to check out how she is now, and dude... heartbreaking. She is married now, moved to another place, has a life, a job, friends, has been working out and having lots of sex, living life. All this time I thought she didn't have her phone anymore, was working in her job without much time for things out of it. I thought she was still that sweet girl, waiting for a change to talk to me... now she changed and is a perv, apparently. What have I been doing? Waking up and staying on the computer till it's time time to sleep, everyFUCKINGday, for years. Also, I've been online all that time as well everyday waiting for her to come online so we can talk. And what was she doing? Exactly what I said, living, married, having sex, working. What did I do to my life over this? Am I so much of a prick to deserve this? My feelings didn't go away for this long... why would it go away now? I really thought she was the one, I really thought. I still use her picture in my Steam profile, I still make hidden references to her in every text I write... just to have this disappointment. I was never so disappointed in my life, never. I would rather die right fucking NOW than to live with a feeling for her for the rest of the short time I have in this fucking planet. I can't, I just can't take this, I can't. Really, I can't. This is why I say that you shouldn't let people get to your life. The more people you know, the more chances you will have to be disappointed and betrayed. This is why I've been drawing people away from me for so long except her. I am tired, really tired, DONE trying to trust people. This is NOT the first time this happens, it's NOT. It happened AGAIN, for fuck's sake. I am tired of this, I am tired of people and all this bullshit. Why do I have to be so unlucky? I have a valuable tip for all of you: don't let people get to your life anymore. Don't let them walk in. Stray yourself away from bullshit and disappointments. Before any of this happen, I was already really fucking done with people, now I was just proved to be right after all. I already had my suspicion. It was just confirmed. Now the awful dreams about this will come back again just like the ones from my first gf. I'm done here, really done, really FUCKING done. I had already given up on life before any of this happen, tried to take my life numerous times, and now, I just don't know what to do anymore. I was so shocked I literally went numb and silent. I was just already so empty... so lost, and not even because of this, and now this happens. Why? Why do friends walk away from? Why do gfs just give up and go missing like that? Why people make so much fun of me behind my back? NOBODY CAN DISAPPOINT YOU AS MUCH AS THOSE YOU LOVE THE MOST. Remember that, always, my friends, always. I don't know what to say anymore. She has a whole life... what do I have? A fucking computer with 3 monitors, games to play? Yeah great, this didn't help me for so long but I do value what I have, a lot. But I have nothing that really adds value to my life or my self steem, or to myself. What have I done to deserve this? Hard to see how meaningless I was all this time. Honestly, I feel like ending everything right now, I have my controlled meds but it would NOT be over her, it would be over what it has added to me and to what I was already feeling before any of this shit. Sorry, I just wanted to say something.

Somewhat unrelated, but after trying out different psychedelic drugs, I do at times question my own sanity/reality. Do we all see, hear and live through a similar lense, though unique to each through our upbringing & experiences? Is everyone's brain wired the same way?

just saying people with downs have their own care centers, because they are in constant pain from being practical cretins so not even a pscyh ward is equipped to handle their needs, they probably rarely have the capacity physically to manifest psychiatric problems
2020-06-17 23:51
#16 Obviously doesn't know what down syndrome is since he's talking about losing a chromosome instead of having one extra but no we don't have any patient with that illness. Some do have autism which in some cases can be comparable.

I'd say our "treatment" is if not the best approach then one of the best. We treat them mostly as normal people and keep teaching them skills to be more self-sufficient. Of course there patients who will never get better but that's not really up to us. We are mainly "nurses/guards" type of deal and none of the patient have a doctor in-house. We can only give them the medicine they've been prescribed (their usual 3 times a day drugs and those for emergencies).

I remember that when I was a soldier I got asked to help for a few days in a mental hospital, I helped with guard duties and then at the last day they asked me to visit the holocaust survivers section to play sheshbesh (tables) and some card games with the patients. It was by far the most challenging (mentally) and painful thing I've ever experienced, it's very tough to be around these people, even guard duty was difficult.
