payment is being refused/returned by venue (donor identity unofficially confirmed) Mulled it over with friends, don't need to give this manipulative asshole any wiggle room to violate my privacy or independence or invade my life etc. fixed. And feel so much better so it was the right thing.

Shame, his wife is lovely. But weak. And apparently I can't have one without the other.

You did what you needed to do for your peace of mind. That's more important than any feelings he may have on the subject.

You know when you hear that someone's severe mental health issues "fell through the cracks in the system?"

Don't believe it. There is no system. It's all one giant crack.

Families can pay between $1500-$5500 per week for moderate-to-great inpatient treatment--forever--or individuals can be locked up in abhorrent public hospital conditions for a max of 10-14 days before they are sent out the door again, whether or not they are better. Permanent institutionalization almost always has to be associated with a prison sentence.

'care in the community' is a fine idea if the funding and support services are there to provide the care part of that equation.

Nobody wants institutionalization as a response to mental illness anymore - but leaving them to cope on their own and occasionally hospitalisng them when the situation becomes dangerous is not the answer.
