if she posed a threat to herself or others then someone should have been granted legal guardianship. this most of the time is difficult to prove. for those of you who have this problem keep trying it can be done

since when do parents need legal guardianship to take care of a sick child???
Are you serious? Once someone turns 18, all bets are off and you parents have no more legal rights unless a court grants them. How old are you and are you like 26 and still letting you parents call the shots? If so, news flash, legally they can't.

That's good. I drink ten Pints of water a day since I work out a lot. That's normal. The report is she drank 2 gallons in as little as an hour. She had a mental problem that made her want to drink water like this. Real far out stuff. I only know this because it happened in my area. So a lot of MI people are on top of this.

Still no word of who's blood was all over the apt. when they found her. Other than it was not hers. Very creepy stuff here.

They say she had been in and out of mental institutions for years. She tried to kill herself as early as only a few months ago by taking pills. Something like that. You can archive the stories at www.macombdaily.com if you like.

Apparently you are speaking form an ignorant point of view. As a mom of a ADHD son....most of us try everything possible and use medication as a last resort. You also have no clue about the ADHD medications and how they work. Where the kids that shot up the schools legitimated prescribed the drugs or taking them illegally?
So I guess mental illness is a farce too?
amen sister!! you took the words right out of my mouth! thank you!

This is frightening to me. I read more and more about people dying from basically water overdose. I drink alot of water in a day every day. How do I know when too much is too much ? When I'm found dead ?

I didn't see any mention of the word blood. Did you read a different story than I did?

I think her mental illness along with the levels of sodium she injested contributed to her death. The water seems to have been a conduit. I wouldn't sweat it, Bonnie.

But doesn't the water wash out the sodium and that's where the problem is ? How do I know when I'm washing out too much sodium ?

Now you're asking questions I can't answer, however, if you find yourself starting to act a little nutty just put down the water and have a shot of scotch.:-)

The body is designed to detect levels near overdose. You would have to drink more water than you could imagine in a very short period of time to hurt yourself. Reports say if you've drank too much water, to the point your sodium levels become dangerously low, you'll feel drunk. This is something you don't have to worry about unless you were trying to do it on purpose. This woman had a very serious problem. She wasn't just some random sane person who drank one too many waters one day. In short, I wouldn't worry about.

Wow, thanks for the link. ALthough it's basically the same article, it is definitely two very different stories. Just some more loser reporting from NBC San Diego.

Okay, I've never felt "drunk" on water. I just believe water is all cleansing and drink alot of it.
