I need some input...


Specializes in psych, addictions, hospice, education.

Hi psych people! I was a psych nurse as well as a psych CNS. I also taught the stuff for almost 20 years. I'm retired now but I have a situation that I could use some input from others who specialize in this wondrous specialty of ours, since I'm in over my head right now.

If you're willing to help me with this, please send me a private message. I don't want to post anything in a big group, due to the intensity of what's going on (as well as protection of a few people's confidentiality).

Thank you in advance for any input you might give down the road...

My spider senses are tingling.

But this feels too much like Pandora's box for this cautious chick.

I sure hope you found some help you need(ed).

I would encourage you to call the National Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255

if things get worse or too hot to handle.

Take care.
