Proactively? She showed up and said, “I’m about to go nuckin’ futz”?
First, requiring hospitalization pretty much bumps a person up from Bipolar II (moderately bipolar) to Bipolar I (severely bipolar), if I remember my DSM-IV TR correctly.
“Proactively? She showed up and said, ‘Im about to go nuckin futz’?”
When you have bipolar in the family you will likely have to give your loved one the choice: “There’s the easy way, or there’s the hard way. You choose.”
The “easy way” is that I drive you over to and you voluntarily sign yourself into the cushy, coddling private mental health locked ward covered by your insurance.
The “hard way” is that I dial 9-1-1 and the EMT’s take you to the ER at the county hospital where you will be “Baker Acted” to the public locked ward with the collection of crazies and diseased that are found there. ( Baker Acted: a verb phrase meaning involuntarily hospitalized if you are in FL under the Baker Act...or fill in the name for the same 72-hour involuntary hold act for your state)
