AnFonE's Blogs

Mental Illness.
   I don't really mess with anything like Myspace, or Facebook, or any other kind of social network. I guess this stems from being anti-social? But yeah, GTP is about as far as I go. I do use MSN pretty much all the time I'm online, but only really talk to a few people on it. I think I have like 10people on it, I did have some GTPers on it, but then I changed my e-mail and didn't really play with it for a while. It's always been readily available, want it, just ask and all that. There was some I'd text too, but then my phone got switched off and lost that means of contact too.
   I have an aunty, she's a crazy lady. Literally. Many a time I've told y 'all about her crazy antics, the weird and "wonderful" things she spends her life doing. But this time is the unlike anything she's done. She's steadily been losing her sanity her whole life, no joke. She sits in the house all day, does nothing but watch TV. This could be considered the natural attitude and lifestyle of someone who can't really go outside unattended. This was demonstrated when she kicked me out, then within a week was in hospital with broken bones. So since then, she's been in and out of hospital and was eventually moved to a care home for permanent residence.
   In the care home they have strict rules on behaviour. You must take your medication, especially when your life depends on it. You must eat food when you're given it, as starving yourself isn't an appropriate mannerism to have. Acting in a violent and aggresive way is also frowned upon. My aunt is a merry little-scamp. She's refusing to take her medication, and and refusing to eat. As such, and in accordance with their terms and conditions, she's being evicted from the care home.
   Two weeks she has to be out of there. They've brought in psychiatric doctors to check the state of her mental health as she's being violent and unco-operative. Now all in all, she's not hurting anyone but herself. If you don't count the people she's throwing stuff at and hitting of course. But what she did next was what caused the real problems. As a complete figment of her imagination, she decided to phone the police and tell them that the carers at the Care Home have been "mistreating her", "beating her" and "trying to poison her". These are completely unfounded accusations, as she is losing her marbles. But the police have a duty to protect anyone and everyone and now the Care Home is under investigation for abuse and attempted murder.
   So they're kicking her out, which is the best thing for everyone but her. But considering the crap she's been putting people through, her considerations don't come into the equation. Still, since she had to give up her house to move into the care home, and is being moved from the Care Home, she now has nowhere to live. People within my immediate family choose not to have her (which I don't blame) or dont' have the space and resources to look after her and have her stay. Again, completely valid.
   Now, she's trying to move in with a women called Babs, who is in her 70's too and has been a friend of my older family for many many years. Babs seems to have agreed, but I don't think she's in any condition to have her there. The doctors came out to check if she was clinically insane and found her to be relatively okay. A second diagnosis could very well be needed, in my opinion and that of all my family. Still a problem for those concerned, but not me. I just think it's ludacris that she's able to start so much trouble and then remain "At Large". She's needs to be commited. Unfortunately, nobody with the power, wants to make that decision. Maybe soon, who knows. It's definitely what's best for her.

   My sister's friend was here today, and she IS clinically insane. I'm surprised they haven't locked her up. She was here today, weirdly though, it seems like her "illness" is a put on. She'll come out with things like "having this mental illness is horrible" and other things that I can't really see someone with the problem saying. It appears to me like she's been told this so much that she's starting to believe it, and is adaptng to this state of mind through the pressure of other people trying to force it upon her.
   I have always wondered if the mentally ill were aware that they had the illness. For a while I thought I could be same way, but it wasn't a serious consideration. Just something I got to thinking judging  by my own state of mind. I'm happy to say that it appears they do. Which should make it easier on them really.
   So "K" see's "disturbing images" and has "voices" in her head that talk to her. They haven't actually told her to do anything though, and she's just imagining it through the aforementioned pressure. Obviously I'm not an expert on Mental Illness, though I've been around my fair share of it. Still, when people start talking about their "Mental illness" like it's something they're completely aware off, doesn't that beg the question, "is it real?". This has only developed in the last few months. I believe it's also important to note that her father is a mental health nurse who works on the local mental health ward in the hospital up the road.
   She has had a great deal of problems too. She was raped a few years back on New Years Eve. They caught they guy and she didn't seem to react to it. She would still go out at night, walk through isolated places on her way home from work, and was a frequent party go-er. She did develop a brashness too, and became more outspoken and out-going. She started sleeping around alot too. This caused a problem when she had unprotected sex with a guy who was known to be HIV-Positive. After a long period of waiting, she got her results back and was Negative. Luckily for her. Now after all this she's developed mental problems, schizophrenic (?). With the way she talks about it, I can't help but feel it's either made up, or been drummed into her. blah.

   My Xbox is still broke, obviously. But today I filled in the forms to get this thing sent off and repaired. Hopefully, if everything goes according to plan, this won't take so long and I'll be happy as Larry within 2weeks. Just gotta wait for this box and all. My Warranty has been expired for a month and 9days, such a pain in the ... yeah. Still, I owe it all to my "Gaming-Gaurdian-Angel" who looks over me and helps me maintain my sense of wellbeing and grip on reality that I've been slowly losing since I became BORED OUT OF MY SKULL.
   I'm keeping today Low-Key, trying to keep out the way of people in fear of the dreaded two words I don't wish  to hear. I don't understand why it makes me so awkward, but it does, and I can't stand it. Well I'm done now, stay good one and all, and have a nice day and a great weekend.

A person with a mental illness can know that they are suffering from one, but that usually is little help or of comfort. Doing something about it though is.

Indeed, but I believe that this girl has had this drummed into her. She was completely fine a few months ago. It really is perplexing. I think I'll read into it.

Like Pho said, people with mental illnesses are very seldom willing to acknowledge what they have to anyone else..

I have bipolar, have had it my entire life, always acted out in weird ways, getting upset or tempered all the time as a young teenager, then going to things like promiscuity and drugs as I got older to try and "make it all go away" but I rarely talked to anyone about how I felt.

It doesn't matter WHO you are, WHAT you have, it sucks having an issue, and sucks even worse trying to explain it to the world when the world isn't ready to hear it!

As for your aunt and the care home, I worked in a home like that while I was obtaining my nurse assistant diploma, and those people really do get mistreated. Sometimes people steal from them, they hurt them verbally(told they're ignorant, lazy, a waste, stupid, etc) they get neglected as far as meal times and drinking beverages goes, not taking their medication is usual but nobody FORCES them to, they don't "stay on them" to take their meds.

It's a horrible thing to admit to, even more horrible to hear of someone who is being kicked out for not complying with THEIR rules when in all reality, something very well may have happened to her.

Keep your chin up, I know it's hard to have someone you love act that way and there's not much you can do when it comes down to that type of behavior (seeing as I have a grandmother who suffered a bunch of mini-strokes and is now so forgetful she doesn't even know to change her own clothes or what my name is most of the time, thinking she may have to be put in a home eventually but there's no way I could watch it happen after what I've seen...)

I think it'll be a little too foul to put her on the air. Cursing, Violence, Drugs (perscription), just too much for any person to witness!

My warranty ran out a week before my 360 packed in, it's the kinda thing to make you think "only me..." But the good people at Microsoft had it back to me in just over a week. Chuffty badge!

They didn't give you the repair for free though? I'll be happy if it gets back quickly. Also, question, does your warranty get renewed for other problems?

Yeah I had to pay for the repair because it wasn't a RROD so it wasn't covered under the new extended 3 year warranty, but after I paid for the repair they added another year of full cover on it.

That's a small consolation then. least I'll be covered. Cheers for the info.

I don't think most people with a severe mental illness are aware of it unless they are constantly told that and made to believe that... Honestly I think it depends on the severity of the disease. Schizophrenia and Multiple Personality Disorder are often confused for one another but I have seen some documentaries where Schizophrenics are indeed aware that they have it... There are Schizophrenics that lead normal lives and take medication and know why they do so... There is actually a show on FX...gosh, waht's the name of it...It's with Courtney Cox...ah! DIRT.... anyway, the photographer in that show is Schizophrenic and he knows he is but is also a photographer for a popular magazine... I dk, mental illness fascinates me, all psychology-related things always have... I forgot what my point was....

It is an interesting topic, I believe I'll look into it a little, see if I can get a better understanding of the situation.
