In Reply to: DESPERATE FOR HELP!! posted by Sue on June 11, 2000 at 23:07:45:

: I am writing this in regardes to my step-dad, who was
: just admitted to a psych unit at the hospital today.

: For the past 3 weeks he has been complaining of
: abdominal pain after eating, so he hasn't really
: been eating. He has lost quite alot of weight within
: the past few months. He has been feeling very weak
: in his legs, feeling like they are gonna give out!
: He is suffering with constipation badly!! He is
: getting small sore like spots on his body. (arms,
: head,chest) I'm not sure if it's from scratching or what! And last, he is VERY paranoid!! People are out
: to get him! He's not mentally himself too much!
: And he is a diabetic also--Type II. He takes the pills.
: He has been to the emergency room 4 times in the past 3 weeks & has gotten nowhere since today. He
: has been mentioning death because he can't handle the way he's feeling. That was the ONLY way we could get
: him admitted!! (AND THAT REALLY STINKS) They really
: feel it's all mentally! Maybe it is, but I'm having
: a hard time to believe this! It seemed to come on too
: quickly!
: He said today, he has only been taking 1 pill a
: day, when he's suppose to be taking 3 a day. For
: the diabetes. The doctors say his bloodwork is fine!
: I just want to know if anyone has ever had this problem due to diabetes?? Could it not show in a blood
: test?? They haven't diagnossed him yet, but they think
: it may be Bipolar!! I really don't think so!!
: If anyone can help me with this, please respond to
: this letter--PLEASE!!! I am desperate 4 help!!

: Thank You

Barbara, what is your email address or email me at katpro@terraworld.net. Thanks
