HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW MY MENTAL ILL LOVE ONES?
By Elouise H.  McGimpsey


I can remember the day and the hour day were conceived, and how they both depended upon me for nine long months with the help of God to supply all of their needs. I shared the labor pains of each   individual birth.
I heard their first cry and watch them both as they open their eyes. I was the one who heard their first sounds. I was the one up feeding and changing them at night, when no one ease was around. I am the one who nursed them back to health when they had their first head cold. And watch them play with their hands, fingers and toes.
I am the one that taught them the good from the bad and shared with them all that I had. I was the hands held them close when they were sad. The hands that punished them when they were wrong and protected them from all harm and at night rocked them to asleep in my arms with a sweet sung. I was the one who heard their first words spoken, and I was the one they both ran too when anything were broken. I watch them grow and walk them to school and taught them to abide by God's Golden Rules.
 I may have been poor, so many times had to bend my knees I made sure I was able to supply all of their needs 
I was the one who read them their first book and fed them three meals a day because I was never too proud to cook.
When they both came of ages and found new friends, tipping out and in, I was the one up at night, making sure they remember to turn off the lights and so many times softy tipped inside to make sure everything was all right.
I am the ones that shared their ups and downs and if they were lost I never stopped searching until they were found.
I am the one who shared their heartaches and their pains, held my head up high when I wanted to cry. But found some way to try to chase away the hardships and the shame in the many times they did not even know their own names and I was just another face pulling them out of the cold snow and the rain.
I am the voice that gave them hope when all others were playing games, making sweet promises and passing the buck for selfish gain. 
Again I am the one that heard their cry and I am the one who knows all the reason why. Because so many years have gone by and their many cries are ever louder because the world have become as the dust of an evil power with so much badness hanging around. Instead of picking them up, always putting them down trying to fit them in space that not good for any human race. They want them to disappear so that they can never be found so that they can get to wear a crown. How well do you know my love ones? Can you tell me who they are or how many days and hours they spent with you or what color of their skin or if their eyes are the color of brown or blue? Would you know their names if you came face to face? Yet you are the ones choosing their fate and letting them know they are the least in the human race. You have the keys to the doors that need to be open, but you don't even realize that the system we have today is broken. We are the ones who hold all the authority without the truth and the reality. You have appointed yourselves their real life coach and from a fleeting moment we stand up in arm guards and swear by God we will do our part. But where are you when the sun goes down? And rain and the snow and the rain cover the ground? Where are you when the first shot is fired and my loves ones are caught outside? Where are you when they are being used and abused and have no place to hid? Where are you when they have to walk in open shame and lose all of their pride because they don't even know their name? Where are you when they are found on park bench dead from the cold? Where ware you when the true story is told? Do we stand up in our great authority and proclaim. I am the reason, I am the blame. Do we stand up and claim our part or do we find a brand new victim and make another bad start and rip another family apart. Because we are trying to play God. The Questions need to be asked: How would I want to be treated if I was that victim of Severe Mental Ill.
How would I feel if everyone walks on by and no one heard the sound of my cry?
How would I feel being broke, not being able to cope and the world taking my life for one big joke?
How would I feel when everyone is afraid and I can't even remember what I just said, and I'm trying to hang on to one last thread. You don't know my love ones at all and this is the main reasons So many Severe Mental Ill disable are headed for the greatest fall, if someone don't stop and take the time to hear their silent call.

The words Of God
Lk:6:20: And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
Jms:2:3: And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
Jms:2:5: Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
Ex:23:6: Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.
1Sam:2:8: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the world upon them.
Ps:9:18: For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
Ps:14:6: Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.

Ps:34:6: This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.Prov:14:31: He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.

Prov:17:5: Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

        The Severe  Mental Ill Rights
                                  No Rights to  Equality
                                                 By Elouise H. McGimpsey   

They are granted the rights to make the wrong decisions
They are granted the right to be homeless 
They are granted the right to live in unfit and indecent housings
They are granted the right to be abused
They are granted the rights to be used
They are granted the rights to be poor
They have been granted the rights to be jailed
They have been granted the rights be killed 
They have been granted the rights to become a part of unwelcome communities
They have been granted the rights to be prey upon by gangs
They have been granted the freedom to choose with a mind that don't fully understand the rules
The point I am trying to make is: When it comes to their human rights ,They have been denied the real quality of life.    
Lk:6:20: And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
Jms:2:3: And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
Jms:2:5: Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
Ex:23:6: Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.
1Sam:2:8: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the world upon them.
Ps:9:18: For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
Ps:14:6: Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.

Ps:34:6: This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.Prov:14:31: He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.

Prov:17:5: Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

I am a seventy-three year old mother with two sons with Severe Mental Illness and I don't get paid for what I do in spite of what some of you may think. I know that I'm not alone in this long battle, because there are millions of mothers and fathers out there who are feeling hopeless and even going to their grave because of the long hard struggles with love ones coping with severe mental illness.  
By the way Mental Illness is not Drug addiction. I am more then fed up with being told by a broken system for the Severe Mentally Ill. “We Can Not Help You.”  If we have nothing to offer then; why are we still occupying a space for the tax payers to keep paying more money in the hope to provide better help for their mental love ones? 
I am speaking out because; Over fifty years of my life, I have seen just about everything, but the right answer for our mental ill victims. We have too many speaking and in sitting positions concerning the mentally ill that have no true knowledge of what mental is all about. 
We hire people to watch over them that can’t even speak their language or have no background of our American cultures or needs. Yet we have allowed them to have great say so over the most vulnerable mind in this country, Why?  Not because they have the answer, but because they are being paid less. What do we care, the mental mind can not be heard. They are silent in our decisions’ making. Yet, they are the one being abused, used and killed because of our poor decisions. Yet, we go unpunished for our fail actions toward another human being, one that is said to be made in the image of God. 
One of the main reason this system get away with their actions, no one challenge them, who are fighting in the real war of mental illness. 
We are real People and have the God given rights and a constitutional right to speak out concerning our mental ill love ones and their needs.
 We are Mothers and Fathers and Sisters and Brothers and Families of those being shot, beaten, abused and those homeless and indecent in the cold street of our cities and in the communities where they are not welcome and misunderstood. Forty years ago we use to have safe places for them at lease to walk and in a place that everyone were aware of their illness. Now they are being tossed out in to places that sound minded people would go crazy if they had to live in them. Our minds are the greatest weapon that God gave us. To be absent from any part of it makes us a prey. Someone has to fill in for the part that’s missing and I strongly appeal to all the families of the mentally ill to take a stand for your love ones.
We can have laws in places when it comes to animals, where are the laws when it come to the housing for the severe mentally ill?
 We don’t need  a fancy tea party, we need action! We don’t need fruitless meetings that has the same unsuccessful possibilities for the last fifty years
I am speaking out about mental illness because there are so many open questions that no one cares to answer. Being the mother of two love ones with this illness. I encourage all families of the mentally ill to take a firm stand for their love ones.
 Reason: 
1. No one ask the opinions of the mental, what works for them, they are simply are told what others thinks should be good for them.
2. Because the families do not take a stand, most of the time the love ones are left behind and lost in the system, which are unfair, and unconcern.
3. There are too many dead ends when it comes to options concerning the needs and programs for the mentally ill.
4. Even the program are often linked only to drugs and alcohol abuse and this is like treating cancer like a common cold.
5. Housing is a problem because they are not treated as others when it comes to the housing program. To not be able to think doesn’t mean they cannot feel when they are boldly mistreated.
6. Human rights are a thing of the past for the mentally ill and so many have fought for our country, yet there are too little concern for their real needs in this country.
7. We have so many laws and bylaws to live by, yet we are breaking our own written laws and passing the buck when it comes to mental illness. Hopelessness is one of the leading words in most of our conversations .when they are spoken of. 
Lets Take A Great Stand For Our Severe Mentally Ill.
