I think this committment hearing process is a complete joke, I’ve heard things like:
well, if we don’t send her to the hospital, she’ll wander out into the snow and freeze to death - this is from a social worker at the hospital I’d never seen before in my life
a friend of mine said “I knew somebody with Sz, they jumped off a bridge, so you’ll jump off a bridge and I cannot handle that” - that was a girlfriend in high school I asked for help if I went into the hospital
my cousin accused me of wanting to take a gun to the University and shoot somebody. Totally a lie, my father was a policeman and she wanted $5000+ from him when he died, he was in a nursing home at the time. I wanted to move him to a different facility, the 2 of them were both alcoholics
my porn addict ex husband testified that “she’d shoot me if she had a gun”, well, see the bullet point above, I’ve always had a gun in the house, my dad was a policeman. 15 years I had a gun, I never shot him.
isn’t that all a ridiculous waste of time, my real problem is that I suffer from brain swelling or inflamation and I need to see a neurologist.
