WE GET IT
Having a loved one with a serious mental illness can be stressful, overwhelming and exhausting. If (or, perhaps more realistically, when) your loved one stops taking their medication because they feel fine, a downward spiral begins. Whether it's irrational anger, violence, or paranoia, it can get pretty bad. You want to speak with the doctor, but you're told they can't talk to you because of "privacy reasons". You want to get your loved one into the hospital to get better, but you're told "we have to wait for someone to get hurt before we can help".
