I'm just mad this morning
Dear people who pissed me off and made me afraid for my daughters safety,
I don't care if your job is difficult and the pay is lousy. I don't care if you are suffering some kind of delusion of power over sick helpless people. When you work with the mentally ill SHOW SOME TENDERNESS AND COMPASSION!!!!!! If you are incapable of even faking these emotions then you are in the wrong field.
Crap, why bother. It's like dealing with mall security and airport screeners and the front desk in a hospital ER. Why do the real important jobs of dealing with the public seem to go to the most uneducated and least prepared to deal with the adversity of that position? Not always of course....don't get all crazy and defensive on me.
On the flip side.......My daughter is used to people punishing her for being sick, it is the card you are dealt when your brain doesn't work right. She accepts the locked doors, the meds in tiny cups and the power trips of minimum wage techs. She will have her meds stabilized soon and she will come home and start the cycle again and again and again. She walks the talk, she holds firmly to Gods hand and she is the most precious child in the Universe.
