surviving Sylvia

Sylvia had a bad week, last week. She took a tumble down the stairs and got banged up, but refused to go get checked out at the hospital. She then found her meds and took 3 days worth on Wednesday night, when it was discovered what she had done. Called in two counselors from the mental health facility to talk to her, took her to the ER to be evaluated, and neither felt that she needed to be admitted into the hospital. Saturday night she waited for me to go to bed, tied a plastic trash bag over her and went to sleep. FOREVER.

Moral of the story, insist on hospitalization, because clearly the "professionals" don't give a shit about the elderly.

If she had been admitted, at least she would have been safe and unable to harm herself.

End of story, good luck to you all.
