    Quote Yale Steam: 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?


    Sharon is not to blame for Phyllis falling. She should have called 911 yes but that is all she is guilty of not calling.

    Changing the paternity letter yes she did that also.

    But the rest of what you have listed was before she was diagnosed as BP and on medication or right after being diagnosed and before the medication even had a chance to work. So no that was do to her illness and the pressure put upon her by the hypocrites of GC.

    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 appreciate your intelligent and rational posts, JRTA. I was also wondering about Sharon's Doctor. If a patient isn't making her appointments or seems to be off her meds., does the doctor need to inform family members? Especially with Sharon's history, i.e. the fire. I am wondering why we haven't seen the doctor in so long. This part of the s/l doesn't make sense to me.

    Thank you for explaining JRTA. I didn't know the diagnosis can take that long. Youre right this is only a soap. I would love it if they cure Sharon tomorrow or say she has a brain tumor instead. Because it is so sad to read all the ignorant posts.

    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.


    Your time is not wasted on me. So often people with Sharons disorder think they are better so quit taking their meds.

    Is this a trick questions as it is the patient's responsibilty to take her meds.

    But based on her actions it's obvious she is not well enough to even make that decision on her own and hence why she should be locked up in a facilty in which the doctor(s) could ensure she takes her meds and get gets therapy too.

    It's fine to gloss over the facts what her bipolar actions could of caused a death.

    It fine to gloss over the fact that her bipolar actions tore a young woman's life apart and even her own daughters.

    It's time for this character to be dealt with good and proper.....the same place that she's been avoiding is where she needs to be....#PSYCHIATRICWARD

    Thanks

    Patient confidentiality still applies. Unless the patient signs off, the Dr is limited on what can be done. Unless the Dr sees an immediate danger, which she didn't in May, she can't force Sharon to do anything, nor can she discuss Sharon's case with family. I am Bipolar and I have to sign a consent to release with my psychiatrist and support worker yearly for them to speak to my husband and other care providers. I know it also took me two years to accept my diagnosis and take my meds and therapy seriously.

    As for the Y&R, they will bring the dr in when it suits s/l, and right now, it doesn't. Drama over reality.

    It's not that it takes that long to be diagnosis, but that it takes that long for the patient to go through the steps of accepting the diagnosis and accepting treatment. Being diagnosed with a mental illness is very difficult for most people. In order for treatment to be successful, acceptance is necessary.

    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...

    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.


    My whole thing is, I don't understand what the women see in them. The only thing I would see is that they have money and power, but they treat their women horribly imho. But I guess to each their own... It would be interesting to see what happens now, because when Nick wanted her to go to Belleview the last time to get help, Sharon used Faith as an excuse, saying that that's not what Faith needs or some crap that Nick fell for. I have to wonder, now that it seems that she's unwilling to help herself on the outside, and she is an adult, what will happen. I mean, will they say, Belleview or charged with Arsen? (I'm sure Victor can pay the people who Adam paid to cover up the crime for Sharon to uncover it) in an effort to force her to get the help she so desperately needs? And who will she use this time to get out of it? Faith again?

    Sharon is responsible for the fall..

    1st she never should of been in the stairwell with Phyllis....if she never followed Phyllis to stop her from telling the "truth"

    2nd...it was because of the struggle for the phone....which did not belong to Sharon....why Phyllis fell.

    Now if Sharon was not in that stairwell and did not try taking that phone from Phyllis....Phyllis would of fallen.

    Much less, she left the woman there for dead and even took her lipstick cause she thought it was hers.

    Just by Sharon actions....the sequence of events took place.....

    Yep, I did the math...

    Now if you subtract Sharon out of that equations...Phyllis would be here.

    But that not the topic...it all about who is responsible for Sharon taking her meds.....that is Sharon.

    What I don't understand is her blantant lieing about taking them....or did she just space out and forget.

    She just seems too calculating......like those psycho's on Criminal Minds.
