Compelled to NEED, My ADHD…

This is still, a, RE-action, to the, adult parents’, “desires” of the child…

I’m compelled to NEED, my ADHD, because, only when I have it, my mom will, shower me with, all the attention, and dad won’t, demand that I make straight A’s.

Compelled to NEED, my ADHD, because we all know, how the world expects less of children with, special needs, and, if I keep on, faking these symptoms, I’ll get off, easy.  Compelled to NEED, my ADHD, it’s the only thing that’s, keeping them from, going AT one another’s throats, because, my ADHD, when it acts up, well, everybody comes to shower me, with, all of their, undivided attention.

Psychologically, I, enjoy the undivided attention, the showers of extravagant gifts if I get a point higher on my school test grades, but that’s all, added extras.  I’m compelled, to NEED my, ADHD, primary because it keeps my parents’ anger off of each other (or they’ll be going AFTER one another throats, and I will surely, end up as, an orphan that’s for sure!), so they can, direct their attention, towards ME.

As I am, the MEDIATOR, had always been, in their, marriage, and, if I don’t’ use this “mental condition” to my ability, then, what good is it???

The Repeated Offenses of the Perp Who’d Gouged the Eyes of a Super Convenience Store Clerk Out Charged

Another schizophrenic here!  And he’d, done it, AGAIN!  And you still don’t think these severe mental patients deserve to be put in that straightjacket and lock away from society so the world around is safer???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Suspect Was Listed as a Patient with Schizophrenia, the D.A. Evaluated and Believed that He Could Tell Between Right & Wrong, He was Responsible for Charges of Attempted Murder, and Aggravated Assault

The man, who has schizophrenia, Yang gouged out the eyes of a female store clerk last year in Kaoshu County in Pingdong, the case shocked the society, three months prior, he’d hacked another woman, Yang to serious injury, the Pingdong D.A.’s office based off of the psych evaluation, and believed that during the times Yang was committing both crimes, he was able to tell between right and wrong, and, indicted him on attempted murder and aggravated assault changes yesterday; Yang was transferred to the Pingdong D.A.’s Office yesterday, the judge mandated that he remain in police custody.

The indictment stated, that on September 26th of last year, the fifty-year-old Yang felt displeased over how the twenty-nine-year-old store clerk, Pan told him to mask up, to smoke elsewhere, he rammed into the store, beaten Pan, suppressed her neck, then, gouged her eyes with his bare fingers, the attacks continued for more than two minutes.  The victim sustained a socket fracture on her left eye, and injuries of conjunctivitis, hospitalized for nineteen days, and, almost lost her sight entirely.

Yang, because his mother and the woman, Fang had land disputes, they’d had a physical confrontation, and he’d held a grudge against the woman, in the midnight hours of June 30th of last year, at a local breakfast shop, he’d met Fang, he’d first swung at the woman, hit her head, then, started kicking her n the chest, then, used the butcher’s knife behind the counter to attack, and the shop owner blocked him off, that’s how Fang didn’t get murdered.

Yang had schizophrenia, and a person of concern under the local department of health and sanitations, he was arrested on the day he’d gouged the female cashier’s eyes out, the police placed him in protective custody to the hospital based off of the mandates, and after a little over a month’s treatment, he was released last year on November 4th; the D.A. believed that Yang was suspected of aggravated assault and attempted murder, that there’s a high chance he will commit the crimes again, asked the courts to take him into custody, the courts signed off.

The D.A. stated, that both cases were sent to psych evaluation, which both found, that at the time, Yang knew that his behaviors were unlawful, that he was able to control his own actions, that he didn’t qualify or the reduced sentence of Penal Code 19, and prosecuted him.

As Pan had been discharged from the hospital, she’d stay4ed in her relative’s home to recuperate; the county government told, that she still needed to return to the Changgang Hospital for her follow-ups, that her eyes still felt uncomfortable, she’s still in recovery, and couldn’t work, that if she needs help in finding employment, the county will assist.

The head of the village locally, Chang told, that he’d felt relieved, at the news of Yang continuing being in police custody, that it’d set the minds of the local villagers at ease; Yang’s families all moved away since, nobody could control him, he hoped, that the laws can, punish him severely.

And so, these are, the ticking time bombs of the societies, you do NOT know what might set them off, or when they may get agitated to attack, and, keeping these mentally ill individuals in lock up permanently may be the only solution there is, to keep the world safer.

The Case of Arson in the Buddhist Shrine Killing Seven the Man Received Life-Term Instead of the Death Penalty

It took the justice systems, THREE whole YEARS, to decide what to do with this man who’d, committed arson, and murdered his own elders in cold blood, well, that took, long enough, and to the families of the victims, this does not seem like, justice at all, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The arson case of Yujing, Tainan from three years ago that resulted in seven deaths, two injuries, the first trial the courts found that the suspect, Tseng had premeditation of committing arson and murdering, used an extremely cruel measure, had no humanities, sentenced him to death; the second trial considered that Tseng had been diagnosed with a severe mental condition that was left untreated from his younger years, causing his bad behaviors, yesterday, the death penalty was overturned, and life-in-prison was given to him as punishment.  This can still be appealed.

The man in charge of the Buddhist Shrine, Chang stated, that the tragedies happened, and, Tseng shall be judged for his crimes; for the three years, the families of those who’d died worked hard to let go of their hate, hoping, to return themselves back to their, original, peaceful state of mind in living.

Tseng was taken by eight bailiffs to the courts to hear his verdict, during the verdict of his first trial, he’d gotten worked up and started gesturing to the news media, as he’d learned he got life in prison yesterday, he’d remained, silent.  The seven members of the families of those who died weren’t present, only stated their opinions on paper, they’re still not done, grieving for the losses of their loved ones yet.

The Collectivist Courts believed, that Tseng was fitted to the U.N.’s laws to get punished, considering how he’d started showing severe psychological disorders, and didn’t get the proper treatment, “it’s necessary, to avoid passing down the death penalty to those who are inept.”

And besides, after Tseng committed the murders, he’d, immediately called it in, subjectively, his turning himself in helped the investigators quickly get to the case to understand what had happened; Tseng’s parents blamed themselves for the outcomes of his behaviors, had already directly or indirectly, paid the sums of the victims of their son’s crime already.

And so, this man should’ve received the DEATH penalty, but due too his mental conditions, he’d, escaped death, instead, he received a life-sentence, which is just as well, because now, he is going to get tortured by his own guilty conscience over what he did, but to the families of victims, I’m sure, they would much rather see him get executed.

Suffering from Postpartum Stresses Symptoms, She’d Suffocated Her Own Infant Son from the Fatigues of Caretaking, the D.A. Asked for Seven and a Half Years

What drove this woman, to kill her own newborn son, it’s another, tragedy that could’ve been, avoided, but it still, wasn’t!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The woman, Wang felt enormous stress and pressures after she gave birth to her son, she’d suffocated her own two-months old young infant son to death with a blanket and plastic bags, she’d turned herself in and melted down, and, wrote a confession, telling what had happened, and gave it to the police; the district attorneys found that the means that Wang took to murdering her own young was extremely cruel, but considering she was mentally unstable, that she was in a state of declined capacity for thought when she’d committed the murder, and she’d fitted to the requirements of turning herself in, charged her on murder and other charges, asked the courts to give her a seven and a half year sentence.

The coroner’s offices found that the infant boy died of asphyxiation, the block in his airway, which corresponds to Wang’s confessions, and she would’ve originally been given a more severe sentence for breaking the welfare rights of children and adolescents, but, she received leniency because she turned herself in.

Based off of police investigations, on November 11th of last year, Wang saw her young son asleep in the crib, she’d picked up the blanket, then a plastic bag, covered up her own infant son’s mouth and nose, causing the infant to suffocate to death, after she’d committed murder, she was in a daze, stayed with her own young son’s body for over three hours, then she’d called her own husband, and the infant boy was rushed to the hospital, and couldn’t be saved.

Wang turned herself in, cried that she’d murdered her own young, that she would be willing to accept the punishments from the court systems, she’d written a confession, which detailed what she did to murder her own young, and told the police, that when she was murdering her own young, she was in a daze, thought she was dreaming about it, that she thought that she’d dreamed that her son had died.

The district attorney’s office checked the records of Wang’s mental wellbeing and found that after her son was born, she’d started experiencing the depressive moods, and the evaluations found she may have a case of postpartum depression.  Wang also stated, that she’d felt enormous pressures from having to handle the household chores during her pregnancy, that she had troubles, caring for her own newborn, that it was her fault that her son had died.

The district attorneys believed, that Wang was affected by a mental condition, and lacked the proper trainings of parenting, that’s why she’d lost control, and murdered her own newborn son, considering how she had, turned herself in, and shown remorse again and again, that this is a pain she is unlikely to ever recover from for her whole life, and asked the courts to give her a seven-year-six months sentence.

This still just showed, the pressures we women are under, with caring for a newborn infant child, and, there’s a high chance that we may experience the postpartum symptoms, and, without the proper needed, social support, the support from our husbands (one at a time!), our families, this is what happens, MURDER, and, this could’ve been avoided, had this woman had the senses, to seek out help sooner, and getting the proper social support she’d needed, as well as extra pairs of hands to care for her own newborn son.

After the Psychologically Ill Man Hacked His Own Mother to Death, He’d Cried Out, “Someone, HELP My MOTHER!”

The man’s mental illness left untreated, that’s, caused his own mother to be, MURDERED by him!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

There was the tragic news of a mother being murdered by her son in Taoyuan yesterday, the man, Tseng, was suspected of murdering his own mother, Chen, with a butcher’s knife, with whom he lives with.  The police, fire department broke down the door, found Chen lying in a pool of blood, already dead, Tseng was covered in blood, and was found, hiding on the balcony, in a daze.  The police found the records of Tseng having been treated for a mental condition, but not registered as a mentally ill person, as they took him to the hospital under police custody, they’d charged him with murder, after the D.A. reviewed the facts, asked the courts to keep him in custody, the courts signed off on it.

The police found, that the thirty-one-year-old Tseng lives on the fourth floor of an apartment with his mother in Pingzhen District, Chen took care of Tseng by herself.  At around six in the morning, the neighbor, Liao heard Chen called for help and immediately called the police, and Tseng started crying shortly thereafter, “help, save my mother!”; as the police and firefighters arrived the door was locked from the inside, they broke it down, entered into the living room, where they saw a huge pool of blood, with Tseng’s mother lying in it, no sign of life, and there was a butcher’s knife next to her body, that was suspected of being used as a murder weapon.

The police found the injuries are around the head, and the neck on the victim’s body, they’d suspected, that the victim was hit by the butcher’s knife on the head, then, hacked to death.  They’d followed the blood trails, and found Tseng hidden out on the balcony without the railings, he’d sat, stood, and attempted to leap off.  The police immediately arrested him, found him to have lacerations on his head, took him to the hospital under custody, where he’d received twenty plus stitches, he’s not in life-threatening danger.

Based off of understanding, Tseng is diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, suffers severely from auditory hallucinations, delusions, also severe depression, early yesterday morning, he’d heard a voice telling him to kill his mother and himself, wanted him to “murder her”, and saw a shadow that attached to his mother, which caused him to attack his own mother and himself; Tseng’s father already died, he and his mother were all each other had, and, the relatives knew that he’d had multiple records of hospitalizations, but he’d not taken his medications like he was supposed to.

And so, this, is what you get, when you have schizophrenia, left, untreated, you will have the hallucinations, the delusions, and this man probably won’t get charged with murdering his own mother and get punished for the crime, because of his mental disorder.

When you get depressed, it affects me too, because I’m, your wife (yeah, uh and you wish!!!), and, being, an emotionally-connected couple, we feel, EVERYTHING that one another’s, going through (and I still wonder, WHY can’t you go through MY labor pains for me here!!!).  When you get depressed, I knew better than to get in your way, I’d, ducked for cover, hide, underneath, anything I can find, and, keep my fingers crossed that it’s (whatever I’m hiding under???) sturdy enough, that my protective covers, don’t get, blown…………………

And yet, I still, get, H-I-T, by your thunder, lightning, and everything that, hurts!

Huang: Writing on FB, Getting Along with My Illness, “Everybody, I’m Experiencing My High Cycles of Bipolar Right Now”

Opening themselves up, to the online community, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Telling the World about Their Depressions, They’d Fought BACK the Tabooed Names of Mental Illnesses

“I really want to die”, Huang had posted the line on FB many a times, sometimes, she’d told the process of slashing her own wrists in detail, or, posted the photos of her own self-inflicted cuts on her wrists. Huang sad, since she was sexually assaulted by someone she’d met online, she’d started experiencing hallucinations and became suicidal.

Replying to the Comments, Don’t Force-Feed Me the Chicken Soup of the Soul

“I wrote on impulse, because when the emotions came, it became too hard for me to bear”, there were those who’d left the comments of, “hey, don’t get upset” or told her to seek out spiritual guidance on the comment sections of her posts; Huang replied back, “Don’t force-feed me the chicken soup for the soul”.

“I just want to be free, I just want my pains to be acknowledged, that others won’t have to be tried as hard as I’d been”

Six years ago, Huang went into counseling for her cyclothymia, and was treated with prescription medications.  This is a milder form of bipolar, when she had a relapse, she may be bedridden for two weeks, only cried, not eaten, not spoken, and mutilated herself.

Born in 1999, as a millennium baby, she’s used to writing her thoughts on FB, she’d told the real-life experience of her being sexually assaulted, being overcome with her cyclothymia.  “Everybody, I’m manic now!”, she’d still announced on FB, sounded like “menstrual cycle”, very, matter-of-fact.  But, on FB, she’d, reduced that impulsivity she’d felt, and, gotten to learn to get along better with her own mental illness.

There’s no nationality of the younger generations’ coming out with their hurt.  The Japanese tennis star, Naomi Francois, in Time Magazine stated, “I hope that people can understand, it’s okay to not be okay!”  Because she wasn’t well psychologically this year, she’d, refused to go to the press conferences of the French Open this year, and she was fined; after she’d won the first rounds of tennis matches, she’d announced that she was out of the competitions, due to her depression.

The famed gymnast, Simone Biles, who won FOUR Olympic gold medals in the Tokyo Olympics this year, she’d dropped out, stated, “I need to take care of my mental health now.”

And, this still just showed, how far, these younger generations had come, from being socialized to not tell about it, to breaking down the barriers of discriminations, the taboos of mental illnesses, opening up about their own experiences with mental illnesses, post-traumatic stress response, and, their experiences are going to, help a lot of whom are experiencing similar things, and, these are, brave younger generations of women we need to look up to.

Lee Set Up the Lost-from-Society League, to Help Change the Unfriendly Atmosphere of the Society, “Stop Seeing Only the Illness & Not the Individuals Who Have it”

The experiences of her bipolar, and how she’d, used her experiences, to help others who are experiencing similar trials in their lives, offering them the support she worked so hard to get, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

When Yun Lee was twenty-one, because she had the self-mutilation wounds on her wrists, her school reported her as “attempted suicide”.  Since that day, she was labeled as “person of interest” by the local offices of sanitations’ system of “suicide watch”.  Lee was placed in psychiatric care, and psychotherapy, but this was, a despairing process of her to experience.

Three years ago, Lee gathered her own journal entries and used the pseudonym “Lin” to publish the book, “Note of Psychological Illnesses”, criticized how the psychiatrists only see the illnesses, and not the patients.  Using a pseudonym, because she didn’t want to announce to the world that she has bipolar, she said, the society expects those “who help others to be mentally stable”, that the notes of her self-mutilating process were nowhere NEAR okay, if she disclosed that she’d had these encounters, it may impact her jobhunting process.

Until two years ago, she’d started writing under her real name.  Because she and other psychiatric patients like her, set up a “Taiwanese Psychologically Ill Association”, a support group from the angle of trauma medicine, to help the voices of the psychologically ill patents get heard, to change the unfriendly system.

“Homosexuals also came out together”, Lee had been out of the closets for many years already, the experience of coming out as a lesbian was from her “Crazy Persons’ Movement”.  She’d called herself “crazy”, and, embraced the blemished identity of being psychologically ill, like how some of the homosexual persons called themselves “queer”.

Lee pointed out, the psychologically ill persons’ reasons for not “coming out” is same as the reason why homosexuals couldn’t, worried that they may lose the connection with the “normal” people in the world: “When you’d become nothing in the society you live, this, is how it kills us, not the illnesses themselves.”

The writer, Hsu was thirty years prior to Lee, and back then, the talks of homosexuality, mental illnesses, were even more, tabooed.

Two decades ago, as those who had depression were afraid to go get treated, Lin penned down, “Goodnight, Depression”, to describe his own experiences with depression.  After his book was published, he’d received a ton of reader responses, and showed his passage to the psychiatrist treating her/him, and, another had placed his publication on the nightstands, to remind her/himself, that “I’m not alone.”

In 2009, Lin left his final note on his blog, ignited a discussion on the boards.  Hsu knew, that he didn’t WANT to die, and the reason he’d published that final note was because he was in too much pain, that he couldn’t, take it anymore.  “Maybe, I’m, making an example of myself, to the other people with psychological illnesses, that if you can’t take it, seek out help.”

Writing, showing up, these are, all, signals of S.O.S., a need to be, understood.  Lee often received calls from others with shared experiences as she, “They felt that I understood what they are going through.”  But even IF we have the same diagnosis, that doesn’t mean that I understand what another individual is going through, that I can, empathize with them.  “Every patient is an island”, with varied reasons of what drove us insane, and we are all unique, in the expression of our, insanity, but, “being together is enough, at least, we won’t, feel, so alone in this.”

And so, this points out the importance of having that needed social support when you’re in trouble, but, even if there are supports, people don’t normally seek it out, because, they’re all still, socialized into thinking, that, mental illness is bad, that if I come out of the dark, people won’t understand me, and so, they keep on, suffering on their own, without knowing, that all they need to do is to, reach out, and, help will come to them, and besides, that very first step out, is always, never easy, because you don’t know how the outside world will see you, and nobody wants to be labeled as, CRAZY, so that’s why, all of these sufferings, are going, unnoticed.

On the Physical Assault Case of the Female Store Clerk, Nobody IS a Bystander

On the random physical assaults, the attacks of the innocent individuals by the mentally ill, and how none of us are, free from the responsibilities of how someone got injured by a person with psychological illness, observations, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The case of the female store clerk being physically assaulted in Pingdong brought up the matter of those who are mentally ill and living among the general public.  Mostly, those who has a mental condition, aren’t labeled as violent, but they should live, in seclusion, away from the public.  Because statistics show that there’s a higher rate of acts of violence in those who hadn’t been formally, diagnosed.  On this, I have three points for you to consider:

First the patient’s own sense of pathology is the most basic of preventive means.  If you’re human, then you will fall ill, and, if you are ill, there are the treatments in therapies, medications to help relieve your symptoms, an individual who doesn’t know how to treat one’s own body well enough, it’s truly a shame, and in the end, s/he’d used violent means, and made the victims and oneself, pay.

Secondly, the stereotypical beliefs about mental patients which were too deeply rooted in the minds of the public.  Some reports used words like, “the individual is seemingly psychologically ill, and that’s why s/he committed a crime that caused regret”, and, if we’re exposed to this sort of wordings long-term, the general public is bound to set up their minds about what psychological illnesses are.  And once that label gets slapped on, it would be hard to rip the labels off, and so, as the media press reported on the case, of the police officers tried to solve the crimes, they would naturally assume that the individual is, psychologically ill, thus, carried the prejudices in investigating, reporting the cases.

Thirdly: there’s a lacking in interpersonal relations and social support and the social security nets being set up.  Every person has a subjective point of view, some of us, are stubborn in a certain thought, and that can’t be changed.  You can say that the man has obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, anxiety disorder, but, to the individual, as s/he is experiencing the feelings, the thoughts, it’s, too real to her/him, and when the condition gets too serious, then, the chances of tragedies might occur.  And, to spot the abnormal behaviors through supports from the relatives, friends, families, as well as social network, social welfare programs, to not allow an incident, to become that final, straw.

Nobody wants oneself, her/his family members to get ill, and I’m sure, that none of the psychologically ill patients would want to see these sorts of tragedies to keep on occurring, it would become a pressure in one’s own life, as well as causing that widespread panic in the society.  We all must, take part in keeping the society safe, nobody is an outsider in this.

And so, this is on the lack of awareness of psychological condition, of how we are used to slapping that label on someone, because let’s face it, that would be, WAY much, easier, than to help the person get the help that s/he will require, to recover, and so, that’s why this sort of tragedies keeps on happening, again, again, again, and again, and we’re all, responsible for why this keeps on, happening, because we didn’t do anything, to help that person in need out, and the person CRACKED, and went on that shooting, stabbing rampage, and nobody can be without, the responsibilities for doing SOMETHING about it, because we can all chip in to help out, it’s just, that we used that, hands-off, N.I.M.B.Y. attitude to it all.

With a High Chance of Repeatedly Offending, Placed in Protective Custody for Five Years, the Families of the Deceased: Can’t Accept This, Will Fight for an Appeal

Another case of how a VIOLENT OFFENDER, with a mental condition had, escaped, the death, penalty here, still NOT justice that’s what this is!!!  How the insanity plea, worked in this, psycho’s, “favor”, and there’s NOTHING that anyone (including the justice systems) can do about it, crime & Punishment, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The man, Chen clubbed his neighbor, Chung to death, the Pingdong District Court, based off of the psych evaluation by the psychiatric department of the hospital, believed, that as he’d committed the murder, he was relapsing from an episode of severe paranoia from his schizophrenia, that he couldn’t control his own behaviors, used the first of Penal Code 19, found him not guilty, and placed him in protective custody for five years.  The families of the victim couldn’t accept this, they will ask the district attorney’s office to fight for an appeal.

There are just a case of how a female store clerk, Pan got her eyes gouged out by the man, Yang who also has schizophrenia, and yesterday the courts found Chen not guilty by insanity, which broken the promises of the local government’s setting a safety net for the sake of the locals.  The legislators also questioned on when the holes in the systems will get patched up, with the recurrences of these events?

The assault on the female store clerk of the super convenience shop, the head of the village, Chang who had been attacked by the perpetrator led a group from his village, to head to the Sanitations Department of Pingdong to make their proclamations, Chang told, that now, the people in the village are all on edge.  A villager, Wu told, that Yang had been in and out of the hospitals multiple times, and had multiple physical assaults on record too, but none of it stuck, and now, he’d used, a more fierce method, gouged someone’s eyes out, and the people are in a panic, due to this huge hole in the security net.

The assistant director of the Pingdong Department of Health & Sanitations, Chang told, that they will discuss with the Central Government on how to reach that balancing point between the rights of the mentally ill and the security of the local societies, that there is, a need for toughening up the reinforcements in the laws, that she will discuss the matter with Central government.

Two years ago in December, Chen first banged on his neighbor, Wu’s door with a wooden bat, beaten Wu to skull and hand fracture; last August, he’d clubbed his neighbor, Chung to death, after the one death, one injury he’d caused, the D.A. finally, prosecuted him on murder charges.

The courts investigated, that started in 2016, Chen had multiple hospitalizations due to schizophrenia.  After the cases happened, the Pingdong Jia-Le Hospital and the Kaohsiung Medical School Hospital’s psych evaluations all found that he was symptomatic of schizophrenia, with strong persecutory paranoia.  The Kaohsiung Medical University hospital found that the coworkers, the neighbors, became the persecutory individuals of the self in life, causing Chen two get into multiple fights with others, without the proper treatment measures, and his life being shut in, lacking that strong social support system, in the end, causing the brutal physical assault on the individuals whom he had the persecutory beliefs from.

The judge believed that it was Chen’s paranoid schizophrenia that’s made him committed murder, that he didn’t have control over his own actions.  Based off of the first of Penal Code 19: “no punishment for individuals who are undertaken by the mental conditions, who couldn’t control one’s own behaviors”, gave him a not-guilty verdict.  But considering the severity of his assault, of how Chen’s conditions can’t be watched over by his own family, and without the proper treatment measures given to him, there’s a high chance for him to offend again, that it’s seriously dangerous, placed him in five year protective custody.

And so, this is still, nowhere NEAR, justice for the victims, because this man poses a danger to himself, as well as others, but because he’d been diagnosed with schizophrenia, instead of charging him with attempted murder, and physical assault, he only got a slap on the wrist, placed in protective custody, in the, psych ward, and what happens, if, after his release, his schizophrenia “acted up” again, and he murders someone, huh?  You just don’t let these loose cannons go all over the places on the streets, and yet, there’s nothing that the justice systems can do, because he’s been, diagnose with a mental condition here!
