Wow, I’ve never thought of that. Good point! I think I assumed that if/because I’m so mentally broken, that I am not able nor allowed to be amongst society without help, and that it’s the dr’s/therapists/police’s jobs to keep sick people either out or closely watch them. That even if you are hopeless, you are not allowed to die, but they can’t let you amongst society unwatched, as the public would be upset. So they are forced to keep you in line, but they know you are hopeless but have to monitor. And that’s also why I thought, in part, that the attitudes towards hopeless cases like me was one of anger, resentment, disgust: they are duty-bound to keep you as “well” as possible yet mad cuz they know you are hopeless, waste of time, just gonna die like this anywY. But jump on a moral high horse if anyone mentions euthanasia. It is bonkers when I think of it. They are resentmentful that you are there and untreatable but they are forced to do whatever they think to make sure you don’t die nor bother/upset the public, yet in their minds they know it won’t help. Babysitting with pills and psycho babble and probably some secretly hoping you die naturally to rid the world of having to waste time, money, food, meds etc. Or they just like taking anyone’s money and it’s as simple as that. I really think many working in psychiatry and therapy literally hate most the clients. That it’s their job to society to keep us in a small niche, usually medicated. It’s been my experience that a huge chunk of us patients are living in a bubble of meds, therapy, groups etc where most psych patients are only around or kinda interact with other psych patients and drs/staff. And the public mostly avoids us, so our whole world, mentality is based on that, and “normal” people don’t want anything to do with it. And the public loves pushing you back in that bubble. Normal upset? First response is find meds, your dr, therapist, A psych group, etc. If I am not talking to a therapist or similar, I am isolated. And who wants to make new friends with the girl the whole town knows is crazy. Let the Drs deal with it. Happens to others, I’ve seen it. I’ve gone back in the system purely cuz I have nobody hardly to even just talk to., they don’t want to, or I get people warning people to stay away, which is how I lost a brand new friend, she said people told her I was hopeless, crazy, beyond help. I’ve gone months, A year, by myself, and end up running back to system out of sheer desperation. Had a therapist who would talk to me about movies, books, etc, cuz I just need to talk, much less any issues. Most my social life in life has been vague pseudo friends while in group, but not after, and therapists etc. And I’m shy anyway. I got very depressed in past thinking that. Pseudo friend of a therapist. Then they dump you, or move, or you do. Bam, no friends. Only human I talked to for long while was a therapist. Angway, I digress. I think the system sets ppl up to have to depend on it for literally all your needs–medical, mental, social. I had a worker once whose job purely was to do stuff with me–walks, cards, etc. But it’ll never be a true friendship (we are exempt from friendship/relationships, we are the unwanted specimens after all). I believe this is a core problem with psychology. But the public doesn’t want us, they want Drs to fix us or deal with us, so I’m sure the Drs don’t know what to do. You can manage symptoms but you’ll always be a very bad case and that’s all you should expect but not whine about it. Was my understanding. The public expects the Drs and pills to fix you or keep you out of society either physically or socially. However, I feel if they declare you hopeless and are resentful, they should offer euthanasia. But they need to be on moral high ground, so as to sleep at night, or feed ego. Which brings me to the point that we are society’s scapegoat– those damn hopeless crazies, causing stress and problems for us and everyone, I’m so overwhelmed having to deal with them and they are ruining society. However, I do wish they had therapy robots or something one could buy to be your friend, cuz many of us are just lonely I feel. Very isolated for much of life. The system benefits off our pain and loneliness though, that’s for sure.
