Default Re: How to Involuntarily Commit a Psychotic Person

not to change the subject, i'm posting to say i was a person with mental illness and still am. i learned i have to take meds to stay stable. i used to refuse for years but in 2008 was hospitalised and was soo bad i agreed with everyone that i was really ill. since then i've been on meds to stablise myself. God forbid if i shouldn't take them anymore, i would probably die. i love feeling stable and sober so much, i wouldn't give it up for the world.

When she took her meds she was fine. I know some people do not like meds. Meds saved my life from my debilitating psychosis. My sister took her meds and had a job, went to school, had many friends, lived on her own. When she stopped taking then she lost all of that and is basically a toddler. A 30 year old woman. Is basically a toddler.

Without.meds, what then do you suggest for severe psychosis? ????

This is very hard, but -- someone actually listening to her on an extended basis. Good luck in finding someone who can.



Also, I did not say without meds entirely.

i think my sister would benefit greatly from therapy. she is so resistant to it though. she wont tell my mom or me whats going on in her mind. i was the same way... until i was basically forced to do therapy. it saved me. therapy and medication saved me. i want the same for my sister. we have been through so much, especially as children. i feel i have a better chance of talking to her than my mom does. she holds alot of anger towards my mom. i am trying to see if they will let me come visit my sister in the hospital. i miss my sister. i do not recognize the person she is anymore.

im sorry if i overreacted
