Customer Question
Hi, My wife is...

Hi, My wife is in North Ga hospital for taking advil pm in high dose but changed her mind after doing so and called the medics, The hospital she went to sent her to north GA about 100 miles for high levels of the drug and care. The doctor there has order a state facility to come in and evaluate her and she is doing much better after 3 days. she has had depression for a year or so and just learned of many family issues with religon and beatings that were harboring in her thoughts that she never dealed with until recently. She is under a doctor and therpy guidance here but I not sure a padded cell for 2 weeks is the correct thing to do. She fully understands what she did and has shown she is real sorry. How long in a general hospital can they hold her for this.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

Just today after seeing her and although she wants to come home her eye are focused normal and they took her off all her meds. I have not spoken to anyone about this just concerned this other place will make her worse not better

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?

We have been is therapy both together and alone for communication and help but they know alot about her past

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
