Where was the counter argument that much violent behaviour IS induced by medication?
I saw a great deal of abuse when an auxiliary in a psych 'bin' in the early 1980s. I reported a SEN for overdosing patients on sedatives. I was told that as an auxiliary I was in no position to make a judgement. However, as an intelligent person I could read the dose, work out the necessary volume and see that she was giving quadruple the amount given by all other nurses [and no it wasn't diluted as I watched it being poured]. As a result he had 'paradoxical anxiety' as stated on the side effects and screamed all night when she was on.
As a consequence of standing up for a patient i did not have my contract renewed.
Since then as a patient [following an accident which caused PTSD] I have suffered from very poor treatment. Last time I saw a shrink I was told I was being discharged as 'you haven't tried to kill yourself yet...'.
Caring. My rectum is it.
I hold down a very responsible job in nursing and yet every night when I go to sleep I hope I will not wake up. I have black moods at home which are incredibly oppressive.
As long as I can hold it together at work I will continue, but sadly without support.
