I dont want to be a VEGETABLE ..Hospital Bullshit & Our Rights

by sadlife958

If We’re 18+ conscious and on the verge of death we should be able to refuse treatment. Or if were discovered to have a deadly disease or cancer we should become to consent treatment.

Anyone know anything of this?

I just feel hospitals pressure patients for that $$ while we pay and suffer along with continuing this painful/lonesome life?

I just don’t want to be a vegetable if I fail

THEY ASSUME YOU A THREAT TO SOCIETY A DANGER TO EVERYONE IF YOU SHOW WARNING SIGNS OF SUICIDAL IDEATION. THEY ASSUME YOU WILL DEGENERATE INTO HOMICIDAL. THEY ASSUME ANYONE WHO WANTS TO DIE (FOR THEIR OWN REASON) IS SICK IN THE HEAD. THEY CAN LEGALLY (I SUPPOSE, THEY CALL IT LEGAL) FORCEFULLY MEDICATE YOU, GRAB YOU, CORNER YOU, CHAIN YOU. BUT WHAT THEY HAVENT THOUGHT ABOUT IS HOW MEDICATION CAN MAKE IT MUCH WORSE.

Instead of giving us medication for a peaceful exit

COD:S YES! They assume but they do not know at all what it’s like I have been to the ER a few times and I remembered one doctor was asking why am I in the hospital hw was asking a nurse & the nurse “she goes he’s here because he overdosed” he shakes his head and says “that’s so dumb” while laughing. I was right across the room I could just hear it but I didn’t say anything I was 17 when I first attempted suicide and I remembered how everything was by force they didn’t even let me go to the bathroom I had to do everything in the room it was just awful experience

Yeah they don’t know it’s people like that that make us want to die. Lovely vocabulary he has.

I’ve been called psychotic he-she delusional by people at the mental hospitals. I was completely normal and this ugly ***** was saying I had a flat affect in front of the judge to force me to have to stay longer when I trusted her when I talked to her I’m like when I was talking to her there was no such thing as flat affect in my approach. She was fucking insane.

You see how messed up it is? And what woulda happened if I would have thrown something at that doctor just as soon as he said that about me on what I did was stupid? I’ll tell you what they woulda done they would have probably put me in a straight jacket or who else knows what else they would have done both of course. hey consequence same goes for you what would happen if you would have yelled at that lady for saying that you were flat affected? Most likely they would strap you down drugged you & you would have probably received much more time in those delusional hospitals which means that we have to be silent and be suicidal at the same time no drama queen attitude I mean it’s not like we’re committing murder on somebody else and these kinds of Acts and these kinds of treatments is just like you said just makes you want to die even more shame on the system

If you have deadly disease or cancer you are not forced to get treatment. No hospital or person can force you get treatment if you don’t want it

sadlife958 11/14/2017 - 12:27 pm

Good! I see just..wish it went that way for suicide

@ User Unknown – True, you can refuse medical attention you don’t want in the US provided:

1. You appear competent when refusing it, or if unable to speak:

2. You have a properly executed Advance Medical Directive, and:

3. You have a medical proxy who is willing to spend all day some days seeing to it that the terms of the Directive are actually followed, because:

4. If the medical institution violates any of those terms, the terms they violated are deemed voided. And if that happens,

5. The institution may be sued and the legal actions are taking around five years to settle.

From fruit to vegetable lol. I mean, not you, just us depressed people in general.

sadlife958 11/14/2017 - 1:46 pm

Hahaha well I look like a fresh fruit but inside it’s all rotten from the mistreatment & care of my present and past. Dont most of us depressed people feel like that

spectralgiraffe 11/14/2017 - 6:23 pm

Nahhh idk about this ‘fruit’ side. People have gotta put on a mask for society and pretend that they are ‘fine’.
Tomato is a fruit or vegetable…?

sadlife958 11/14/2017 - 7:19 pm

To better assist your question is ketchup a fruit smoothie or vegetable LOL me putting on a mask is not so easy I spoke to another member here about smiling such a difficult thing to do I think it was Soul Sisters I was trying to put on the same mask like she puts on I didn’t last very long

eternaldarkness 11/14/2017 - 11:26 pm

Tomato is a fruit

From my understanding, as long as you have no immediate threat for self-injuring (i.e. suicidal, in manic phase) you have the legal right to refuse all treatment provided you have met suffrage age (adult age in your jurisdiction). Its a fine fine but as long as are lucid and in control, your right to refuse cannot be infringed upon.

I live in Ontario, Canada and all of this is covered in Ontario’s Health Care Consent Act (HCCA). I am guaranteed autonomy provided I have the ability to receive and reciprocate informed consent. If I am lacking in either of these or in cases of emergency, decisions may be made on my behalf by others as defined by this piece of legislation.

I personally have a DNR (do not resuscitate) request with my doctor. My hope is that it is honoured should such a situation arise. I have informed my sister, too, of my request.

Hospitals may recommend treatment but at the same time you have the right to refuse treatment. The acceptance of such refusal is contingent of your cognitive abilities to understand and communicate your wishes.

There is additional act in Ontario, Substitute Decisions Act but I believe this act covers property and not health. I could be wrong.
