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.

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?

VP if I had the money I'd fly you there to sort these sorry sacks out!
Sorry you are hitting a brick wall again Frenchie...

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.
