On Dec 23rd, 2019, my wife Chrissie (pic above) had an altercation with the police, resulting in her being brought to the police station in Kelana Jaya and eventually warded at PPUM psychiatry division. She's diagnosed with schizophrenia.
As at the time of writing this (1/1/20), she is still warded there but we expect to move her to Shal Home Care before the week is over (or latest by the week of Jan 6 onwards). The estimated fees include:
1. RM1,500 per month (at Shal)
2. RM600 per month for medication (according to the PPUM doctor)
The total thus comes to around RM2,100 (or USD500) per month. We pray and hope she won't have to stay for more than 2 months. I am, of course, grateful for any assistance you are able to provide; this campaign will be closed the moment we can confirm she is out of the home and no further medication is required.
Note 1: I have selected USD because this website doesn't have the option of RM.
Note 2: All surpluses will be channeled directly into my wife's loan accounts for her two apartments (pls see below).
On May 6th, 2013, Chrissie suffered a nervous breakdown whilst at work. She quit her new job (based in KLCC) and began experiencing paranoia and delusions. She was taken to see two mental health specialists, was given medication, but has refused to take them. Me, my family, my in-laws, our friends and even her former bosses at work have repeatedly urged her to take medication, to no avail.
I have also seen first hand how even hinting to her about taking medication can driver her into a rage, all of which (unsurprisingly) end up making things worse.
Back to the timeline, she managed to get her old job back in July '13 and continued working there until March 2017 when she was asked to leave (after, again, repeated instructions from her boss to see a psychologist, which she refused). Except for occasional art classes, she has since been unemployed.
Over these 6-7 years, my family have managed to adapt with her situation. And, up until last week, there was minimal effect on other people (and no police). However, the present case dictates that she can no longer be on her own, for she may trigger another police incident should things go back to the status quo.
Things are made more difficult for my family due to the fact that my wife took out loans to purchase two condo units, sometime between 2012 and 2014 (which we need to sustain via rent). We have repeatedly requested that she sells them off, again to no avail. One apartment has been vacant since Nov; another will be vacant by February (but I'm hoping the present tenant will extend his stay). We have engaged an agent to try to rent out the former.
Again, a huge THANK YOU for your assistance, prayers and support.
