ৱ The  ⩿ Weekends at Bellevue: Nine Years on the Night Shift at the Psych ER  䬂 Book By Julie Holland ᇼ ৱ The ⩿ Weekends at Bellevue: Nine Years on the Night Shift at the Psych ER 䬂 Book By Julie Holland ᇼ Exclusive Julie Holland on Weekends at Bellevue No one is immune from mental illness After working at New York Citys Bellevue Hospital for nine years, as the psychiatrist in charge of admissions at the psych E.R on Saturday and Sunday nights, I came away knowing this for sure Over the years, I admitted heiresses and art dealers, altar boys and college students, homecoming queens, studio executives, bankers, lawyers, correction officers, and the list goes on No matter who you are, what you do for a living, how much money you have in the bank, or how often you go to church, circumstances can transpire that will bring you to Bellevue This is one of the hardest lessons for our patients to learn. My years at Bellevue taught me many things, life lessons I could never have hoped to receive elsewhere, but the main take home message was this cherish your sanity, for it can be lost in the blink of an eye Sometimes I saw the same patients repeatedly, alcoholics and addicts who were hitting bottom in regular cycles, showing up when their funds ran out Other times, however, I met patients with no psychiatric history, who ended up at Bellevue when a bad break up led to a suicide attempt, or a shared cigarette at a bar led to a PCP induced psychosis There are so many ways in which a life can suddenly unravel, and many of my patients could specify just when that started to happen for them whether it was joining the army, leaving home for college, or living through the death of their child Many of the people I encountered at Bellevue tried strenuously to convince me that they did not belong there Or vice versa A big part of my job was learning how to separate the genuinely disturbed from the fakers some people actually wanted to be admitted to Bellevue, if only for the promise of a clean bed and three meals a day , and to identify the people who had been misunderstood, misdiagnosed, who werent mentally ill at all After a few years of Bellevue experiences under my belt, I developed a sixth sense for what real crazy looked like, sounded like, and yes, smelled like One night a young man was brought in to the E.R because he was found on a street corner preaching to passersby to give up their worldly possessions I knew enough to listen and wait, and not rush to judgment, even though it might have seemed a no brainer to admit him Once I was able to draw him out, I learned that he had taken psychedelic mushrooms and then spent time in a Chelsea art gallery known as COSM, which I myself had been to and knew to be an intense, inspirational and potentially overwhelming experience, something that might well unhinge a person on mind altering drugs I spoke with him gently as his trip slowly ebbed, helping him to navigate his re entry in the city hospital where he had landed with no money or identification He stayed in touch with me for months afterwards, grateful that I was there to protect him when he soared however briefly beyond the boundaries of normal behavior There is a diaphanous membrane between sane and insane It is the flimsiest of barriers, and because any one of us can break through at any time, it terrifies us, causing us to turn our backs on those who remind us of this painful reality But spending so much time with people who marched out of the lockstep of sanity has made me less forgiving of the way the mentally ill are ostracized and shunned We owe them something better And we should remember that the barrier separating them from us is not nearly as secure as we might think Julie HollandIn this disjointed memoir, Holland describes her nine year odyssey as a doctor on the night shift at New York City s Bellevue hospital, a name that has become synonymous with insanity Holland met a bewildering assortment of drunks, sociopaths, schizophrenics and homeless people malingering in hope of a warm place to crash As the physician in charge of the psychiatric emergency room, the hard boiled Holland acted as gatekeeper, deciding who would be sent upstairs to the psych ward, to Central Booking or back to the streets The book also covers Holland s personal life from her student days as a wannabe rock star to her psychotherapy sessions, her sexual escapades and her marriage and birth of her children Holland captures the rhythms and routines of the E.R with its unbearable suffering, petty jealousies and gallows humor She is less successful at maintaining any kind of narrative continuity Chapters generally run only a couple of pages and often depict random anecdotes that most likely sound better than they read Oct Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
