Renée Druggett December 8 at 7:31 PM · **Trigger Warning** I have so many emotions and thoughts going on right now. But what I feel most, is absolute heartbreak and sadness. I am also angry, disappointed and shocked!! I met Mckenzie Strait when I was in hospital back in 2017 and for the 6-7 weeks I was there, we connected. We’d play Trouble and cards together, watch tv and more importantly shared some deep conversations. I learned a lot about her including the fact that she was a beautiful loving soul with such a big heart who was desperately seeking much needed help. McKenzie lost her battle today with her mental illness. McKenzie was 20 years young when I met her. Despite being sick, she was there to help others that were struggling. It didn’t matter how bad of a day she was having, she was there to comfort you regardless. Some medical staff made reference to her that she was looking for attention and made stupid comments how she was a frequent patient of the psychiatric ward. Maybe if this handful of staff had to talk to her a little more and take her more seriously, I wouldn’t be posting this today. Don’t get me wrong, the majority of the staff were absolutely incredible and I will be forever grateful to them for helping me. Unfortunately, there are some medical staff that work on the floors that doesn’t have the experience to sea with mental health issues. And I can’t fault them for it but I do fault the system for not providing the proper care that is required. I’m sorry, my emotions are all over the place. It isn’t my intention to attack anyone but it saddens me that we have lost another beautiful person to mental illness. For those of you who question someone’s emotional pain…it’s REAL!!!!! You can’t just “get over it.” Yeah, tomorrow may be better, but the day after that could be a lot worse. And don’t ever say people have it “worse than you”…who are we to invalidate someone’s feelings!?! For those who are struggling, these are not the people to surround yourself with. Surround yourself with people who take you seriously and want to help you and truly understand and love you. RIP sweet McKenzie, it was an honour and privilege to know you. 8787 49 Comments 6 Shares Like Comment Share
