When you've lost half your body weight, no matter how "lovingly" you were cared for, you were not, in fact, cared for.

FTFA: "Currently, her bathroom visits last up to an hour or two, a duration which would be considered long for most people."

Not my dad or brother, not sure what goes on but one can forgot they are even home when they drop a deuce.

Was at brother's last week, he went AWOL for extended period of time. Hung out with his wife for a while and then got tired after running out of beer. I had assumed he was on the toilet, turned out he was redoing some stuff in the wiring closet... which actually took him less time than the marathon crapper forays.

Gordon Bennett: Thisbymaster: The answer is simple put the food outside of the bathroom. She will either come out to eat or pass out where you can then pull her out anyway. That takes maybe a week, not two years.

Probably the latter. She wasn't just irrational, she was/is clearly seriously mentally ill.

Madam Leong, now 58, claimed that she felt a strong force holding her down every time she tried to get up.

She also imagined stones being hurled and water sprayed at her by people she could not see, preventing her from leaving the bathroom.


Might have been a good idea to slip antipsychotic medication into her food.


THAT'S WhY you take antipsychotic medication? I thought antipsychotic medication was supposed to be given to NORMAL people to MAKE them CRAZY.

cowgirl toffee: bow: What the hell? Props to her husband for staying by her side.

No kidding. I could stand by my man... but not while he's in the bathroom on the toilet. Hell, sometimes I can't even stay in the house after he's been in there. There are times that I wish we had the bathroom re-tiled with activated carbon.


Feed him yogurt. Your house will smell better and he'll be moved by consuming all those little bacterium.
 
2012-01-22 10:11:37 AM  
Sad, the husband should have called an ambulance to come get her and take her somewhere where she could get help. She could have had a brain tumor for all we know.

Sim Tree: Why don't we, as a species, properly deal with people who have obvious mental ailments?


i say this to myself on a regular basis. perhaps, as another farker stated, this would be genocide.

then on with genocide. being 'that guy' is no fun. and it's no fun for those around him.
we are way overdue to let common sense and common good prevail. eugenics is the answer my friends.

and you are right. as it is, there is no phone number to call to get the ball rolling to help damaged people. it is wrong to ignore and pretend. it is a reflection of how primal and backwards our civilized and advanced society is.

I had food poisoning on Wednesday and spent the entire day in the loo, so I'm getting a kick...

Are you saying she was being enabled?

The resemblance to some Congresscritters is astounding.

Maybe she had a pretty good book that she was reading while sitting on the can.
 
2012-01-22 11:03:18 AM  
Don't nobody go in the bathroom for 34-45 minutes....
 
2012-01-22 11:09:28 AM  
I can relate to this a little too well. My mum has locked herself in the bedroom for extended periods of time. When I say locked herself in, I mean that the locked the door and then moved furniture in front of it. I want to say that she was only back there for three months, and I know with certainty that when my father and I left the house for work, she emerged and went to the grocery store to procure non-perishables and water. During that time, she was online telling her sisters (and a family friend) that my dad was abusing her (he wasn't) and that I was trying to kill her by poisoning food and inviting her to eat it (I wasn't).

When she did finally emerge from the bedroom, she moved her computer desk from a common area to a guest bedroom. She sat in that room for ten years, leaving only to use the toilet, get food and see physicians. She would not come out when family came over. She would not participate in holidays. Nothing.

They moved from that house and into another, where she recreated her "room." She stayed there for 5 years, then took her recluse act to another state and hunkered down in a vacation home.

It is absolutely impossible to figure out how to help someone who is off their rocker in that particular way.

I'm more concerned with WHY this short article is broken up into FIVE PAGES.

Coelacanth: In China, evil spirits are supposed to be able to enter and exit a home through the toilet.


In my house, they only exit that way.
 
2012-01-22 11:37:07 AM  
It took five pages just to explain that she's schizophrenic?

Damn, aren't they a couple of winners.

Strong force holding me down, need help soon-ish.

I would have just carried her away when she fell asleep.

Do you say that when people enable alcoholic or abusive spouses?

Stones being tossed in water and people straying it are obviously potty jokes.

I remember the last article like this. That girl stayed on the toilet for months and seriously never moved from it at all. Her enabler boyfriend took her sandwiches. Her skin actually grew around and fused to the toilet seat and she had to be taken to the hospital and given skin grafts and everything.That is one of the most depressing things I have ever read. After that article I wasn't on Fark for about six months.

I recall this one. It was a couch she was fused to. But yes, pretty grim picture of your fellow man, for sure.

Mr Ong, 64, said: "I had to take a stool into the bathroom for her..."

You'd think after two and a half years on the toilet, she would have made at least one of her own.
 
2012-01-22 02:03:00 PM  
Weird, but not as bad as the one from Kansas that sat there so long without ever getting off that her butt grew around the damn seat! Kansas Story (bonus points because the Sheriff's name was Whipple)

He should have just pissed on her when she wouldn't get out of the way.

I'm thinking that would have magically dispelled the 'mysterious force' keeping her on the shiatter.
 
2012-01-22 03:15:56 PM  
i bet she would have gotten up if he used a cattle prod on her. electrical shocks cure mental problems. cures 'the gay' too!

You can't, her problems are beyond what a family member could do. She is in need of professional help.

Sim Tree: Why don't we, as a species, properly deal with people who have obvious mental ailments?


Because we might violate their civil rights.

I'm not shiatting you. You can't force someone to talk to a therapist. You can't force someone to take prescribed psychiatric meds. You can't force someone to let you clean their home. It's incredibly difficult for a mentally ill person to get to a point where they're required to participate in counseling and take prescribed medications, even if they have a diagnosed history of severe mental illness going back decades. Also, once they've gone through conservatorship, supervised release to a group home, some time in a board and care, then finally independent living, they have to go clear down to rock bottom before they can get back into any kind of managed care. Do not back up. Severe tire damage. So they have to hit a level of rock bottom beyond what you see on Hoarders before they'll get 5150'd and [possibly] start the process all over.

The minute it is made any easier, some yahoo in a position of power will use it to make people he doesn't like or his enemies go away. All that would be needed is to keep lowering the bar on what constitutes when somebody can be forced into a facility.

I'm sorry, but I love spentmiles' posts. I laugh like a retard every time I read them because at first I'm like "Wait, what???" *checks username* and proceed to lol.
 
2012-01-22 06:44:21 PM  

spentmiles: I work from home at a computer desk all day. I have a medical condition that requires me to drink water continuously throughout the day. I got tired of going up and down the stairs to the restroom, so I combined my office chair with a plastic porta-a-john base. I've been sitting on it for ten hours a day for the last decade, so I am not particularly impressed with this woman's fame-grab. Two and a half years? Call me back in about eight more.


I really, really hope you're kidding. That would be insanely messed up.

My brother is a casino PAD shift supervisor. For the last 10-11 years, at the casino where he works, they've had to watch this one casino porter like a hawk. Guy's a certified pyromaniac. He's a danger to the property. There's been a few minor incidents down the line. But they can't fire him because it violates some federal regulations.

The firebug retires in four years. Everybody is holding their breath until then.

Tell that to the families of people with legitimate mental health problems who can't get the help their family members need.

The bar used to be lower. It's been shooting into the stratosphere since the 80s. It's close to passing Voyager, for fark's sake.
