ok so i know a couple of you might not know, but my partner, jess, whose also multiple and has bipolar and ptsd and anxiety and a couple other issues, has been in psych residential for 2 and a half years, with no sign of her getting out of there any time soon.
I just talked to her. Tonight she was doing well. She was talkative and chatted easily. She told me her last case worker left suddenly, and now she has a new girl, this is like her third or fourth one since she’s been there.
Anyway. I asked her if she felt isolated, she said yes. She is also so lonely. She says you get used to it but that she does feel lonely a lot.
She has a new room mate but the roommate told her she was going to get a gun and shoot her. apparently the roommate hears voices and talks to them constantly all day long. Jess went to the head of department and they told her to give the roommate 3 days to see if anything changes, and if not, they’d find her another roommate.
I am like this is not good enough! Not acceptible!
She says she hasnt been to therapy in a couple of months, because nursing staff dont schedule the transport, or call cathy to make her an appointment. She has no phone because her mom decided in her wisdom to cut off her phone service saying since she was in royal oaks she doesnt need it any longer.
I am feeling sad tonight because I miss her. I miss our long talks. I miss hearing all her news, hearing about her life, I miss my kids in her system, my babies, I miss their sweet voices, their cute antics.
I just miss them all.
