43. Not only have I worked a lot of psych

my extended family is a hot mess, lots of bipolars on my dad's side and my mother's family was just plain bonkers, even by Irish standards. I've seen this over and over, grandiosity and paranoia, and now I see it with Qbots.

I've always tried to work with the mentally ill instead of against them, enlisting them in solving whatever physical problem put them into the hospital without making them defensive by confronting their delusions head on. It cut way down on the thrown containers of bodily fluids and allowed me to give them some real help.

I'm retired now, so dealing with Qbots will fall to other poor slobs who are still in the trenches.

I hope your friend is stabilized on medication and realizes she needs it if she's to have a reasonable life.
