Mental Illness in Recovery
Good morning Dear God. Poor Roman returned to the hospital within the last month, Roman’s third time going into the hospital. Please make his doctor put Roman back on his new medicine. When Roman came home from the previous hospitalization, the hospital doctor put him on a new treatment, Trileptal medication, which helped Roman so he won’t hear voices or think that people were trying to hurt him. I’m agitated this morning because Roman has a heart of Gold. And Roman should not suffer because of his original doctor, Tod. The Doctor at Saint Elizabeth told Tod and Greg that Roman was on a new treatment and ready to leave the hospital, but Tod was upset with the doctor. They wanted Roman to stay in the hospital for two more weeks. But the hospital doctor told Tod and Greg that Roman was good to go home. Well, it appears that Roman’s doctor Ted doesn’t like to be told what to do by another doctor. So instead of putting Roman on the Trylipal, Tod, the ignorant doctor, just put Roman back on his old cocktail without the Trileptal.
Yesterday, Roman received his medication from John. Roman searched for the Trylitpal in his medication packet, which calmed him down and stopped the night terrors and the horrible voice in Roman’s head. Roman was pissed off and wanted the new prescription, the Tryliptal because he said he couldn’t hear voices anymore, and nobody would physically hurt him. So Roman told me he was going into the hospital, and he was going to stand up for himself with his arrogant doctor and Greg. If Roman’s doctor doesn’t give Roman the medicine he needs, it violates Romans’s Human Rights. His private doctor has to follow protocols from the doctor from Saint Elizabeth’s to keep Roman on Trylepal, which “Worked. Individuals like Roman, myself, and Gary suffer greatly. We didn’t choose our illness, and our society is ignorant of mental illness. People without mental illness “Will” never know what it feels like to be hypo-manic or severely depressed or understand bio-polar too. Gary and I love Roman like a brother. Roman is trapped in the system of not getting proper emotional and medical care. For people with mental illness, the system is flawed.
I get sick of the stigma surrounding mental illness. People play God, saying don’t take that medicine, or you should be better by now, and the medication isn’t right for you. F##k People’s views on mental illness. Modern medicine helps so many people. Thank you, Jesus. Today’s beautiful reading is about God’s love for us.
