My wife works in health care. She mostly takes care of elderly or physically disabled people. Some do have mental issues though. On of them is in jail right now for smashing up urns at the local cemetery. Had no idea what he was doing, just liked the sound of the urns shattering.
She also takes care of a young woman that is, in plain words, as mad as a hatter. She uses loads of medication, cuts herself in the belly on a regular basis and leaves carers standing in front of her door quite often. She never leaves my wife standing at the door though. She did that only once and my wife responded in her usual firm way. After that they developed a mutual understanding. Last week she gave my wife a tray, that she painted herself. On the back she wrote she was thankful to my wife, for treating her respectfully. Surrounded by hearts and a date that is about two years off :-) She sure is a colourful lady!
