Help Get Donald Trump Involuntarily Commited Lawfully
Many of us have stood back and watched, listened and been baffled as well as feared what we see in Donald Trump. As a Nurse with psychiatric experience in taking care of patients with a variety of diagnoses, I can no longer just stand back. I feel that Mr. Trump needs treatment desperately. It isn't just what people see when he comes unhinged on something like social media and the latest threat of revoking American citizenships as well as his speech and thought process in these sentences sometimes appear to be spoken in 3rd person or are just plain illogical, paranoid, delusional or what some call insane, but it is what we see with our own eyes and hear with our own ears.
As a nurse I do not diagnose, but I will point out signs and symptoms of mental illness that concern me. On almost every occasion I have seen Mr. Trump speak his words are flighty and jump from one ideal to another. This shows mania or manic behavior. He made a statement once I will never forget where he compared himself to God even though he said no one is better than God, but he himself was close. I fear delusions of grandeur. He speaks that he alone can "fix" everything that is wrong with America. More delusions. There is so much delusional behavior he has exhibited I think most of you reading this are well aware. The paranoid and delusional behavior is very disturbing. He has believed for quite some time the media is out to get him and now is showing paranoia related to a democratic recount and seems to be lashing out against America with this paranoia as well. There seems to be a dominancy in his mind which he allows himself to put down others with ease as well as say things about women sexually disturbing as well as accusations from multiple women that he has sexually advanced or touched them without consent or provocation. This also needs to be assessed by a professional psychiatrist. I see many call him a narcissist. I can definitely see the egoist in him. I can also see the fast swings in mood especially during the last debate when at first he seemed to be trying to remain calm. He seems to become hostile quickly and in times I or others have seen this, the hostility or at least the level of anger is not warranted. He seems to have the innate ability to incite violence in his followers who do whatever he asks them to as evidenced by many of his campaign rallies. Another disturbing sign that is seen is his lack of empathy. This may be most disturbing of all. Most humans are able to relate to other humans and feel emotionally what they feel i.e. sadness, fear, anger, etc. Mr. Trump shows a total lack of empathetic response for other human beings whether they are American citizens or not. He wants to punish women for abortions, tear apart immigrant families, destroy constitutional amendments and tear away American citizenships, bomb countries without thought of loss of innocent life. I could go on and on. He seems to not care about other people at all and I will tell you that lack of empathy is frightening considering the position he is about to be in. I would like to add that America is not the only country concerned with the mental status of Mr. Trump, but so is the rest of the world for obvious reasons. I believe there could be personality disorders at play here, chemical imbalance, compulsive behaviors and perhaps even more. I believe he is a harm to others as well as a possible harm to himself and this needs a thorough assessment by medical professionals.
In order for involuntary commitment to occur someone close to him would have to assist or a government official. Here, we the people, petition the Governor of New York Honorable Andrew Cuomo, the Attorney General of New York A.G. Schneiderman and Mayor De Blasio of New York to assist in the involuntary commitment of Mr. Donald J. Trump. In the process he would be assessed by 2 psychiatrists. This is called "Two Physicians Certify." We ask these physicians be unbiased and professional.
Bellevue Hospital in NY is one of 21 hospitals in New York working positively in Civil Rights and the LGBTQ community. They have an excellent inpatient facility, psychiatrists, nurses and therapists.
We ask that Mr. Trump not receive special treatment because of his status as President Elect or because of his wealth or because of his popularity. His patient rights should be respected and as a patient is how he should be treated.
As a medical professional I do not understand why mental status is not assessed as physical health. It is just as important if not more important when holding the most important office in America. I hope this brings awareness to that fact. I also hope the Republican and Democratic as well as other parties will stop turning a blind eye to this or just talk about "temperament." This goes far beyond his temper. Mr. Trump needs help and I sincerely hope we can get him that help. He is not stable at this time and if things continue I fear a mental breakdown or his illness may affect our country or the world in an extremely negative way. The time has come for everyone including the media and government officials to stop talking about it and do something about it. It's up to us to get this petition as many signatures as possible and sent to New York ASAP.
It is my belief that if the doctors do find illness and hold him up to 60 days this could reverse every decision he has made due to his mental illness especially manic behavior can cause brash rushed & unwise decision making. This is not to mention anything else that a professional psychiatrist may find issue regarding his mental health. One does have to question the decisions he has made regarding many things including cabinet members, etc. There is plenty of etc. in decision making to question regarding many things from the beginning of the primaries until the present time and I'm certain the near future.
Thank you for your time and I do sincerely hope you will help.
