24266 Well fuck...
Jesus Christ I am having a fucking hard time at the moment...

My fucking bitch of a girlfriend came round to my place the other day and went mad raging because the laplander in the shop wouldn't let her use her card and made her get cash out instead. So then we went back to what USED to be my place and she continued raging shouting at the top of her voice about the laplander. The fucking thing is my neighbours just so happen to be of that race.

Next thing the fucking landlord comes round and says that there has been a complaint about her and that we need to keep it down. After this we go to the kitchen and start cooking, and some black guy that lives in the next room comes in and he's all like "hey girl" which pissed me off no end. Fucking thing is though, he is massive. So I do my best to defend my position but ended up getting knocked the fuck out and thrown down the stairs. All the while this bitch is standing there loving seeing two blokes argue over her.

Anyway, the landlord came again and fucking evicted me. Then she fucking left me stranded and refused to let me into her place. Since then I have been sleeping rough and I do not have a clue what to do. I've lost my phone, I've developed a huge alcohol problem and I don't even know what to do about any of it. Sorry for repeating myself I'm on a bit of a rant.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

There is an extraordinary shortage of psych inpatient beds in this country. Every day in every bed is a precious resource. Patients are routinely discharged when they clearly need the bed, simply because someone else needs it more. Either OP is genuinely a fruit loop, or he's making this whole thing up for giggles.

The length of time I've been in there?

I was in there for a week... I I'm now in the council offices getting housed. I know insane people claim to be sane but if you read from start to finish its not hard see the story.

>NHS mental units can spot chancers.

You seem to greatly overestimate the judgement of health care professionals.

Which has only gotten worse in recent times with the rise of post-structurism with it's "who are we to say who is X and who is Y" bullshit.

I generally agree with the thrust of your point mate but a 44 year old experiment done in American mental health institutions can hardly be considered reflective of the modern NHS.

From what I've heard talking to the mental health lot, it's more that they simply don't see much of a practical difference between someone who is desperate enough to lie in order to get themselves sectioned, and someone who is plain old mad.

What makes you think methal health has moved on that much in 40 years? obviously neuro science has and generally health care professionals will hide behind standardized self survey questions to make diagnoses to shield from the embarrassment of being 'caught out' (the direct outcome of the Rosenhan experiment).

but neuro-science doesn't tell you why the person with perfectly normal brain activity keeps burning down buildings.

No things are still much in the same spot they were before, diagnosis can only really be performed on 1. those actively seeking a diagnosis or 2. those so deviant from societies norms as to be immediately obvious, There are a lot of people who don't fall into either of those categories that should be diagnosed, and those in 1. that get diagnosed that arguably shouldn't.

Not him but I agree with just about everything they said - and have had experience working on inpatient wards, to my shame and ultimate discredit. It's a sham, the quack branch of medicine, and hasn't really changed in centuries. Better section me too.

I'm reasonably sure it can; and that reason is that they don't actually have perfectly normal brain activity.

The short answer is yes.

Developmental disorders, and brain damage both result in atypical brain activity.

And everything you said is what I meant when I put "I generally agree". I'm one of those hippies who thinks psychiatry is little more than mere pseudoscience myself, in general.

But again. The staff who work there, like the staff who work in most NHS facilities, tend to be pretty self aware and down to earth about what and why they are doing. They know not everyone inside is mental, but they also know that if you had such a difficult time keeping your shit together that you ended up there, then you might as well be.

Well I've reached my new housing. It's a shitty hostel full of drunks and junkies. Really wise placement by the council considering I've just been I am hospital and completed an alcohol detox.

I've only stayed there for a night so far I've been staying with the girl.

I certainly can't have visitors at this new place as they have a 24 hour manned security desk :( well at least I can't get kicked out cause of visitors any more...

The council have a statutory obligation to house you, not to keep you sane. It's actively in their interests for you to get sectioned or jailed, because then you become someone else's problem. A bed in a psychiatric unit or a prison might cost an order of magnitude more than a bed in a homeless hostel, but it doesn't come out of the council's budget.

Welcome to the Kafkaesque world of government finance.

>During their initial psychiatric assessment, they claimed to be hearing voices of the same sex as the patient which were often unclear, but which seemed to pronounce the words "empty", "hollow", "thud" and nothing else.
To be fair if someone came into my nuthouse and said this, then started taking notes on every little thing, I would wonder what the fuck was wrong with them. Definitely give them a valium or two. Just to be on the safe side, like.

I probably wouldn't make a good psychiatrist.

>Well I've reached my new housing. It's a shitty hostel full of drunks and junkies.
Well that sounds a lot more plausible than your jaunt thus far. Fun thread though either way OP, congrats. And genuinely, I hope you do get sorted with housing benefits and a flat.

It's probably because that is the only thing available. Hang in there and ask your key worker to see if there are plans to transfer you to other housing. Contact the Citizens Advice Beaureau to see if they can help. Be prepared to wait a while with them. Good luck.

If you don't stop with this toxic shit of sticking with 'the girl' you will never be in a better state then you are now. I don't care how co-dependant you are and how much you love her or are worried about her. She will drag you into a fucking hole and never let you out of it. Literally no one else can help you OP until you get rid of her. If you succeed at all, she will pull you back down to her level, out of spite. You need to avoid contact. I'm sure you already do enough self-sabotaging you don't need her help.

Well anyway I may have made some progress with getting housed after this hostel. My probation officer is contacting my housing officer on Monday on my behalf.

Aside from that I've had an OK weekend. I stayed at the woman's place and went home last night after a bit of inevitable drama. At least it was at her place and I got a bit of revenge for myself.

Today I found out that whilst in hospital the dwp closed my benefits claim and are now forcing me to claim this new universal credit and I have no choice in the matter. It's criminal. I'm going to have no money for about 6 weeks. All of my friends that have been put on uc have had nothing but problems.
