I hate the mental health system

my sister said that, I heard your show on the radio today, February 27, 2009 on my way over to the hospital where she was waiting to be transferred to a pysch ward somewhere. I told her about the 6 word memoir. Her doctor kept us waiting for 12 hours.
People don't want to deal with bi-polar or schizophrenic people. I said that if I had a broken foot you would not leave me here for 30 hours.
No one explained anything to anybody. You don't have much rights when you are perceived as mentally ill. Normalcy is a fine line for some.
