    People like her are why mental illness isn't taken seriously!

    You deserve better. You are not there because you were bored amd had nothing better to do. I feel angry on your behalf and can't wait until you are tranferred. Hopefully they will be better trained!

    Agreed. This whole situation is an indictment on our mental health system and demonstrates a truly sad state of affairs. If Frenchie showed up to the hospital seeking treatment for a heart attack she wouldn't have had to fight so hard! Why isn't mental health given the priority it so clearly needs?

    As far as I can tell frenchie is in a general ward, with general nurses. General nurses have no specific training in mental illness, in fact if she was an older lady she probably wouldn't have had any mental health training at all. So this situation isn't a reflection on mental health services, it does however highlight the ignorance and hatred some general nurses have about mental illness.

    I'm a mental health nurse, so felt the need to stand up for my people!

    I agree, I'm an ed nurse and I've never met psych services who aren't compassionate and understanding - it's there job. General nurses however are very hit and miss and unfortunately some aren't particularly 'educated' on mental health. Not right but often the case

    This is ridiculous. I just lost it. Screamed and cried and yelled and swore.
    It's all gone In the wrong direction again. No one will help me except this one great psych and the ward doctor is ob side now. He is trying so hard. Toowoomba don't want me because I'm not in the Kingaroy catchment, Gympie won't take me for atods because I'm not in their catchment. Kingaroy said I had to go to nambor. Nambour said I had to go through Gympie first. Gympie said they won't admit me to nambor because we should be accessing services in the community?!? What services are there in Goomeri??? That's the bad LUck living in the bush Gympie says. I just screamed the ward down

    I'm losing it so bad. What's the point of me being here. I'm just making an idiot of myself.

    I am so sorry you are getting such a run around. I am glad to hear you have someone going in to bat for you though. I hope he sorts it out for you asap. Stick with it (Bet you are sick of saying that) you are not making an idiot of yourself, you are reaching out for help.

    This is ridiculous! I hope your psych can sort it ASAP for you. Living rurally should not preclude you from proper health care.would they bicker over who does what if you had a limb hanging by a thread, too?
