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.
    Time to get in touch with your local member even if it is through fb. You would be surprised what they can and will do in a election time.

    I run the risk of over emoticonning there, so I'll stop.

    You're not making an idiot of yourself. The hospital is making an idiot of itself, but that's not your fault. You need help, not to take the blame of appalling health care onto yourself. Let your psyche fix it. It's what he's doing. The frustration is understandable though. It's ridiculous.

    All in favour of packing VP and sending her to Ffrenchie? Shipping crate might work, George Of The Jungle-like..

    This is a disgrace. Iam sooooooo frustrated on your behalf ffrenchie. You should be able to quietly and discreetly get help without further damaging your mental health by all these **** arounds! I am so sorry its so hard for you. You really dont need this. Its not fair

    This isn't unusual. Mental health services are regionalised and there's often turf wars over who has to treat who. So unlike any medical condition, where you can get admitted to any hospital, mental health regionalise themselves due to the complexity of patients and discharge planning. Being in a rural area makes it even more difficult. In south Australia there's a ward dedicated to those who live in the regional area, if however a patient has been waiting a long time for a bed, they often go to wherever there's a bed.

    Ffrench, hang in there. You're strong. I know you're probably sick of this bureaucratic bull*** and you should be , but you know you are doing the best thing for you and your family. It's frustrating, so so frustrating, but you (and you're probably sick of this too) are strong enough for this. I waited 2.5 days in an ed bed while they looked for a bed for me, and that was in a major city!
    I'm happy that the psych and ward dr are on your side, let them deal with the regions and divisions and whatnot. You focus on staying alive.

    It's so degrading being the one they're fighting over. I'm smack bang in the middle. Only a 400 person town so we don't really matter.

    I don't think it's that frenchie. I think it's mental health services having so few impatient beds that's there's often a sense of 'why should they come here and use our beds when they have their own region'. I know it's hard not to take it personally. They probably shouldn't have told you about the fight over where you're going, rather just tell you that they're still trying to find a bed. A bit of tact in this kind of situation often goes a long way.

    It's hard not to take it personally. Leah is right though, some psych facilities go a bit rabid over 'their catchments' and who gets in. It's ridiculous and is absolutely no reflection on you.
