“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

Debbiekaydedecandy, your delusions have caused you to twist your own story. No one needs to do that for you since your story changes with each post you make.

I looked this behavour problem,(not a mental disorder)and it seems more a problem with children. Like I mentioned in a earlier post, I looked through the DSM 4 and did not find a Mental Illness,(Attention Seeking Disorder). Personally I don't think it is right for anyone to start diagnosing people we barely know with mental disorders. I have an intrest in Psykiatri but I am not a Psykiatri there for I will never diagnose people with disorders. It is possible that Debbie is not at all mentally ill. Maybe she is just stirring the pot and I might say that she is doing a reall good job. The one advice that I found from this attention seeking behavour web site (not wikipedia) was that they strive for attention whether positive or negative. The best attention is not to give attention at all. Just change the subject and move on.
Another issue is this stigma of mental illness in Western North Carolina. It sickens me the way mentally ill people are stereotyped in American society. There is nothing shamefull with being labled mentally ill. Many great thinkers,writers, muscians, scientist, and politicians have or had a mentall illness. My family is in North Carolina and some of them are mentally ill. I am not ashamed of them at all. After all, they are still people whether mentally ill or not. By the way, I suffer from post traumatic disorder and bipolar disorder. Despite that I have managed to complete two university degrees and I am trying to go back and study for my Phd. Before I was diagnosed here in Finland. I served 9 years in the Army Reserves. I was a peacekeeper in Bosnia and I was 11 months in Iraq. So to all the assholes that belittle and think that all mentally ill people are violent and are incapible of living a well rounded life, Haistakaa Paskaa!

Am just trying to get you to see you need HELP! Thats pretty much what every other poster has said Debbie. Why wont you listen, at least to the poster who offered you FREE treatment. I bet if you stopped posting your never ending story, people would leave you alone. But you cant! You just ramble on and on and on. I bet you cant stay off these forums for a month. No way. Ok. I will make it easier on you. Stay away from these forums for 2 weeks. And that means no posting in any of you may user names.. If you think you dont have attention seeking behaviors, PROVE IT! Stay off here for 2 weeks. Starting today. NO POSTING AT ALL ABOUT THIS BULL CRAP!No way can you do it because your attention seeking behaviors wont let you.

I am so glad my assistant reminded me of this. I had totally forgotten about it with so much work to do. But, people, leave Debbie, Kay, DeDeCandy or what ever name she is using alone. She is showing more and more symptoms of attention seeking behavior or as some call it Histrionic Personally disorder. She can not possibly NOT post on these forums for even a week much less 2 weeks. These forums is where she receives the attention she needs! Asking her to stay away from here is like asking a smoker to stop for a week. SHE JUST CAN NOT DO IT! As long as she is receiving attention of any kind from her posts, she will continue to post and post and post. If she not suffering from attention seeking illness, she wont have a problem with staying off these forums for even a month but I really have my doubts that she can remain away for even a day. We shall see wont we. And my offer for treatment still stands DEBBIE

Debbie, Kay, DeDeCandy, It will take very little self control to avoid these forums for a few weeks if you do NOT have attention seeking behaviors. If you do have it, you will NOT be able to avoid these forums for the allotted time. Now, lets sit back and watch.

It has been proven that Debbie can not control her attention seeking illness. Since she will not be adult about it and seek help in the area she lives in,I have ask for her to contact me and I will see that she can get FREE treatment for this in the area she lives in.
In the mean time, PLEASE DO NOT reply to any posts Debbie ,Kay, DeDecandy may post. This will only FEED her illness and make her condition worse. Please just ignore any of her posts. Hopefully she will get the treatment she needs. We have all watched her illness progress rapidly.
Again. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO ANYTHING SHE POSTS.

thank you that's one of my points too,you can't say someone has a disorder unless someone trained has treated them for it also said they have,that is something they slapped on me because they know I am telling the truth.alot of them workers up there will lose there job and some will go to jail for abuse.they have even stated that the staff up at broughton hospital ,set around and laugh at my post,if that is true then some people are not doing there job if they have time to make fun if me

Debbie, I wasn't going to post anything today. I do have to say this much. Do not what so ever give this bogus therapist your email addres or any personal information about your identity. I find it odd that any health professional from the US would be willing to off FREE help to anyone especially on some dodgy internet site. I could understand doing that if someone is suicidal or a danger to the public. In order to be labeled with some king of disorder (mental) you have to fit more than one criteria. You live in Charlotte or somewhere near Charlotte. I am sure there are alot of therapist. I you yourself feel that you might need a therapist, it is your choice and these people can not force that on you. You do have rights.
