You would think so but CAT scans are very expensive. I read a study of 500 (approx) tumour patients, only 98 had hallucinations. Auditory ones were
even less still.
So it's safe to say; that with hearing voices, the first line of treatment is mental health drugs.
That is not quite accurate. I've worked at the State Psych Hospital here in NC for 3 yrs. I was permanently assigned to the Children's Units but,
being on the Therapeutic-Response-Team (Handpicked employees, who undergo rigorous training to appropriately handle patients who are immediate threat
to themselves and/or others), I was hospital-wide responding to assistance-needed overhead pages on all the adult units as well. And HOSPITAL-WIDE, it
is standard policy to order an EKG, all blood tests, physical tests, as well as a CAT scan. If Drs forgot to write an order and Nurses didn't remind
them, Nurses got in trouble for not following policy.
Of course, some are uncooperative and it could take a few days to few weeks before the tests can actually be administered properly and results
received. In the meantime, patients ARE prescribed anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, and anti-psychotics. So like you said, the first line of TX are
Mental Health drugs. But all tests are routine as well, like the CAT scan. Just saying
That's how it works around here. I don't know how it works
in the UK or other states. I imagine it would be similar process.
I'm not conclusively saying I'm unbelieving of this thread. I believe wholeheartedly in guardian angels and the like. I can't say that this
particular occurrence is true, but I do know that many unexplainable events have happened to countless people. It stands to reason that guardian
angels, or similar entities, do exist. It also stands to reason that it's illogical to portray this a "scam" when she could receive UK medical
treatment anyways. What else could be gained by lying?
I also want to point out that almost everyone I've worked with at the hospital ALL vehemently believe in angels, demons & ghosts. The hospital,
especially the old campus as well as the new campus, is haunted. People with no knowledge of it have reported seeing and hearing things. Every person
accounted for, ALL doors locked, yet figures regularly seen. Bangs/screeches, furniture moved, screams/groans in seclusion rooms, doors unlocked
minutes after locking, banging on unreachable exterior 3rd story windows sealed and barred shut, unseen touches- a few examples of many happenings on
old wards with no assigned staff, NO patients, no maintenance. At the new hospital: bedroom doors slam, cabinets/drawers open, TVs change channels,
turn on/off, motion-sensored faucets start, button-push toilets flush, microwave doors open, charts & papers fly off counter/shelf; yet everyone
accounted for & no one responsible. Snakes often found inside even in winter, on 2nd/3rd floors- yet it's a new building, entrances sealed, no vents
near ground (all on roof), no windows open. Snakes even in the courtyards that have 3-story-high brick walls & are surrounded by the building
itself.The old John Umpstead campus was previously a military base. The new campus, Central Regional, right across the street, was built on top of
Indian burial grounds.
We've had patients that NO anti-pyschotic meds were successful on who truly seemed demonic. I know some staff who've blessed these patients and
bedrooms and shortly after these patients FINALLY, after mo's/yr's of unsuccessful treatment, began to show progress returning to some semblance of
All this is included in support of unearthly beings: helpful, harmful and uncaring ones.
For ones who will doubt what I've contributed to this thread - I don't care. I don't require your approval. I'm not stupid or gullible - actually
smarter than most I've interacted with, knowledge driven, inclined to 2nd guess things, naturally quiet, reserved and tend to keep my thoughts to
myself. Given my nature, I believe without doubt what occurred at the hospital is true. I believe in unearthly beings.
It is only a matter of time until irrefutable science proves life after death, whatever form that takes. And life before birth? Something cannot come
into existence from nothing, something cannot revert to nothing. Our lives are not meaningless, our intelligence does have a source. The power of mass
prayer has been proven to work. It shows everything is connected. Living things thought unintelligent have proven otherwise.. Proof is all around us
that neural connections aren't needed for intelligent thought, and aren't needed to make something happen. Consider Quantum Entanglement or
