Just a few thoughts. In Oklahoma it is very difficult to get a crazy person commited as needed. I personally know of two women ( one in OK the other in another state ) who have been put on meds for their bad mental problems. Both hate taking their meds and quit taking them often. I don't see any easy solution for that problem. Another little problem is when you get things all lined out that the mentally ill person can fire the agency who takes care of them. Seen that one first hand. As a relative of a retarded person I can tell you it is heart breaking tryng to get the CORRECT kind of help. Well meaning people can wreck a whole lot of things. Then there are the people who refuse to admit that their family member does need help. There are no good answers as far as I can see. More than one side to this problem. I would not wish for anyone to get caught in the maze that is our current system.
