Who is responsible for Sharon taking her meds?

Postby Yale Steam » Mon Sep 16, 2013 2:44 pm

Sharon is an adult. She is off her meds, it's her fault and her responsibily, no one else's.

Her being off her meds is her choice. Therefore all that she is done is her fault as sick as she may be.

Being off her meds does not excuse her or give her a free pass for all that she has done.

True,
however (last I checked) she hasn't committed ANY crime.
(Phyllis's fall was HER fault, NOT Sharon's)

arson is no a crime?

grand theft is not a crime?

claiming a dead man is her husband is not a crime?

attempt to commit bigomy is not a crime?

what she did to Newman Enterprises is not a crime?

what she has done to Summer's life is not a crime?

and I am sorry, but Sharon is 100% to blame for Phyllis's accident and she left the scene without renedering aid


there are more do you want to hear them?

you are right

Sharon is 100% responsible for not taking her meds

she needs to be in a facility where her medication is forced down her throat.

Yes, Sharon is responsible for taken her medication.

That said, this is NOT a simple black and white situation and painting it as such, shows a lack of understanding for the illness and the many factors involved.

But since there is no interest to understand the illness and just to bash the character, I won't waste my time.

In this bipolar situation isn't the doctor supposed to follow up on her patients? Some people (not all) with this illness need someone to look after them and unfortunately Sharon is all alone. :(

Belleview (or another mental facility) may be the only way. In my opinion, it looks like she is either unable or unwilling to take her meds propperly; she was mixing them with alcohol at one point. Now, it appears that she just stopped taking them. I have to wonder whether she would still be able to "see" Cassie if she actually took her meds. I doubt it, but I'm no expert in meds. Either way, I think you're right; a trip to the psych ward may be in hers (and especially Faith's) best interest to try and get her on some sort of track...

She seemed to be upset with the doctor when she tried to talk to her about her fear of being alone and constant need for a man, as well as her recommendation to stay away from Nick and Adam, plus she has gone against everything that the doctor has advised her. So I'm not sure the doctor has any sort of influence on her, and she doesn't have the need to see a doctor because she's obsessed with Nick right now...she wants Dr. Nick...

In the ideal world, the answer to your question would be yes. But this isn't an ideal world and this is a complex illness (nevermind that it's a soap, and it's about the drama). There is only so much the Dr can do, and only so much they can do in regards to their patient and getting them to comply with therapy.

The other thing is, the diagnosis is new. Less then a year. It can take years for an individual to find stability but first they have to accept the diagnosis of having Bipolar disorder and that IMO, hasn't happened here.

I hate how the writers make Sharon out to be so needy or obsessed of Adam and Nick. It would' be nice if its platonic. Then the s/l can play out more realistic. Love Cassie but the ghost is a big joke. :~
