kt announced that she wants to die. That she's going to commit suicide by becoming anorexic. Please forgive my very dark humor... but that will take too long. Either let's get this over quickly or better yet kt needs to get with the program. (Understand I took this very seriously - I just found kt's means for suicide a bit too prolonged. ) In the meantime, kt spent time holding a knife to her throat then trying to strangle herself. Refused PRN medications because they have "calories". Broke yet another pair of glasses. Crisis team has come & gone; mental health case manager was informed & he dropped in as well. By the time they had arrived the worst was over & kt had finally taken her PRN. While kt has a plan, no one felt that kt is at "high" risk. As she is watched pretty much 24/7, I was willing to forgo the intake for hospitalization. As quick as this came on, it was gone (okay 2 hours - but this is fast for kt). Poor PCA - only had 3 shifts under her belt & she was in over her head. There are days & then there are others. I'm glad this one is over. Tomorrow is another day.
