    I never thought I would be spending my Thanksgiving in Northwestern Memorial Hospital Psych Ward AKA Galter 13. But, I guess that's karma for working and questionably still working for TSA (even though I haven't been to work since some time in August). To much of your delight, I tried to kill myself last Friday. The specific method was a fifth of Southern Comfort and 10 Adderrall pills. To much of your disgust, I survived. I don't know why I'm doing this, maybe I have too much time on my hands. I never stole anything or molested anybody buy why would you believe me. I am currently on god knows how many antidepressants. For your entertainment, when I got admitted to the hospital, I pissed off the security guards and they tackled me to the floor and restrained me. I work at ORD. I'm still in the hospital, so if you want to give me a piece of your mind, go for it. Now, this antidepressant fueled diatribe is over...
  2. I for one have no desire to unload on you. It sounds like you're dealing with enough right now.

    I really hope you can find a light at the end of your tunnel.

    Why on earth would you think people here would want to unload on you? What did anyone here ever do to you?

  4. Well, a lot has been said about the non-humanity, lack of human value, etc. of anyone who accepts employment with the TSA. In some pretty graphic terms.

    My experience is that patients on a pysch ward do not have access to the internet, nor cell phones, or other means to contact anyone outside of the ward without direct supervision.
  6. I had that thought as well, though who knows what goes on in the era of smart phones.

    I know things are done exactly the same everywhere but I know a person that was on a pysch ward. No cell phones of any kind in patients control.

    Good grief, don't even go there.
    Davy's post is about group-tormenting of individual targets. That's bullying, mobbing. This is not.
    There is no link between TUG and this individual.

    I will confirm that the post was made from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.

    Most people in hospitals these days have internet access. I didn't during much of my hospitilization three years ago because I wasn't mobile enough to go to the PC's that were available, but once my supervisor dropped off my laptop I had free wireless access.
  10. I'm talking about a long standing tradition of posting some pretty harsh stuff by a number of contributors. I don't want to have to name names, I do like these members of TUG, and I don't always disagree with their assessments. But I can imagine an unstable person grappling with their awful TSA employment, hating it but feeling stuck in their job for whatever reason, then reading this stuff and imagining it directed at them. Some of the stuff we write on here could certainly hit hard.

    My experience with mental health patients is that outside contact is limited.

    I intended to say things are not done exactly the same everywhere.

    No job is worth winding up in the hospital. I hope when you recover you will be able to find a job that is more uplifting to your spirit than working for the TSA. Perhaps when you are ready you can contribute to trying to make changes in airport security with all of us here at TUG. I wish you much luck in your recovery.
