Doctor cranky : why do you want to kill yourself
Patient : I don’t want to kill myself . I just want to go home today
Doctor cranky: today is Monday , you are in the hospital with overdose , you almost died . Last Tuesday you were at another hospital with same thing . The Friday before you were at yet another hospital with overdose and you almost died at that time too. Three overdoses in less then 10 days . That looks pretty suicidal to me
Patient : it’s not a crime to take your medicine
Doctor cranky : dude you are either very suicidal or earth shatteringly stupid or it could be both, but you are not leaving the hospital. Unfortunately I can’t let you kill yourself under my watch,intentionally or otherwise. I will get psyche involved. If you are lucky they may let you go home in a few days and perhaps you will either stop or figure out the proper way to do it.
