Well, it is apparent you dont know HOW to use spell ck! And YOU are the one who makes it " all about me". That is because of your attention seeking behavior.

No one is making you sound DUMB, except yourself and you are doing a very good job of that on your own without anyone helping you.

My father was mentally insane for 3 years of my life in the 60's he worked 2 full time jobs to give us a good life. He is 78 now still in the mental health systems. A paranoid schzophrenic patient functioning well with support of his wife of 59 years. We did not abandon him he was worth saving.the doctors there did a supere job we knew of the shock treatments then. Bur what could we do. Just pray for our love ones.

and i gotta tell ya, i was there for about 3 days in the early nineties and that place scared the crap outta me. i have no idea what they were trying to accomplish, but i got sent there because i "escaped" from a local hospital and they caught me right before i was about to go out the door. i was hideously insulted and drugged by the local hospital staff before being sent to broughton. drugged so much on thorazine i didn't even know where i was when i got to broughton and could tell a story about THAT. i have no idea why they were so cruel to me at the local hospital, and i have no idea what they were trying to accomplish with their care at broughton but it was not accomplished. it was the one and only week of my life that i was ever in mental hospitals, and from the sounds and sites i heard and saw at broughton that week i believe every horror story on here. the order of the day in those days was insult the patient so much that they'll never get better. i just had God on my side to get out of there.
