“And everyone should have access to health care.”

No criminal action will be taken in the February death of a Broughton Hospital patient who died of asphyxia after a staff member sat on his torso.The death of 27-year-old Anthony Lowery, a patient at the mental health hospital in Morganton, was one of the incidents that led the federal government to stop Medicaid and Medicare payments in August.

On Monday, the district attorney's office that serves Burke, Caldwell and Catawba counties said in a letter to the State Bureau of Investigation that it will not charge the staff member who restrained Lowery in the death. Read more

Debbie, if I was in your place and I had someone more than willing to help me with a mental problem, I would take the help.Everyone on here sees you have a mental illness and also knows you wont seek help but what we cant figure out is why you wont! That other poster has been kind enough to help you but you are to stubborn to go get it.. I think you should take your drama to another forum cause we are tired of hearin this crap.

There is alot of posters who is trying to help this woman who is mentally ill and her way of thanking them is cursing at them. She really needs help for her anger issues and her attention seeking behavior. YOU got help for your illness.Why not try to talk Debbie into getting the help she needs.

No, we aint gonna bash you. Debbie is the one who does the bashing. But beware, when someone agrees with her, she is your best friend until you say something she doesnt like then her anger problem flares up and her attention seeking problems follows and she will turn on you like a dog. If you get more attention than she does, she will start cursing you. Dont believe me? Go back and read all the posts. Thats why everyone is trying to get her to get help. She is mentally Ill and refuses to see it. We will just wait and see how long it takes her to blast you, Shouldnt take to long and then you will see what everyone is talking about.

I have worked with the mentally ill for a long time and before you even go there Debbie, I dont work at Broughton or even live anywhere near there. But I can see in many of Debbies posts that she does have mental issues and she could receive treatment for these problems and live a normal life. But Debbie is like alot of the mentally ill, she dont believe its her with the problems but thinks its everyone else. There has been several people who have went totally insane and killed others and they thought the very same thing.Most mentally ill people believe they are the only sane people and everyone else has problems.
I do wish Debbie would follow everyones advice and seek help with her problems before it gets so bad no one can stand to be around her. I believe thats what has already happened with her sister.

Oh my gosh who do you all think you are?Who are you all to say this lady debbie has these problems?Sounds like you all are the ones with all these problems.All she is doing is taking up for her brother,Also trying to protect others,so there loved ones and family does not have to go threw what her brother and family had to go threw.Stop trying to make her sound like she is the one with the mental issues,because it is clear that you all are the ones with the sickness.

Debbie, They are not trying to make you look like you dont know what you are talking about,YOU do that very well yourself. They are trying to help you before your illness progresses any further.
