Where Is MSHS Wadenas Budget Going?

In the almost month I've been here the following has remained constant:

We have a dart board with no batteries, darts or ac adapter. (Unplayable)

We have a nintendo wii u with no cords or controllers and 3 games. (unplayable.)

Both tv remotes have low batteries and every time I ask for new ones to replace them they claim not to have them.

This pretty much leaves card games or playing on your phone.

To be fair one day we made stress balls by filling latex balloons with rice and flour. You could likely make 50 of these for under 10 usd.

We also had a cooking Group where so far we've done Italian flatbread pizzas and banana splits.

Some Perspective:

Insurance is billed $1,500 a day per patient.

If I counted correctly there's 16 patients here

24000 usd a day. $24k a day.

There's something like 8 to 12 staff here daily you may be see three or four of them in front. There's no provider on staff.

Minnesota state worker minimum is $20 an hour. various people talking it seems the average rate of pay here is around $25 an hour.

Where is 24K a day going?

They have two doge mini vans that are from around 2016 and 2018. 

4 staff members on salary.

This is what they consider dinner. No I haven't eaten any of the balls of chicken. 4 was the portion delivered.

I know part of that goes towards the gym membership for every patient. 

Part of the problem there is you're not allowed to go to the gym at night unless you're up in the morning.

Which is somewhat infuriating because if you go to groups the sleep hygiene class will talk about how if you have trouble getting to sleep you should probably work yourself out till exhaustion. That's my paraphrasing.

But more interesting how can you Bill insurance for something you deny to the patient?

Wadena is a town of 4000 residents, I wonder how well their wellness center would support itself without this insurance money?

For what it's worth though most of the staff here are at least friendly. It's far from the polish and cohesion that was CBHH Baxter though.

I am super sick of s******* liquid with the showers closed because it's past 10pm. 

This is compounded by the fact that despite having clothes I was never released after the FBI and St cloud police raid. I've had no access to any of my things and literally only the clothes that I was hauled into Centra Care with and a few things other patients have contributed in the past 4 or 5 mo.

Baxter that put me on a probiotic. But it's not stocked or covered here. It took about 3 weeks to shit solid and lasted about 3 weeks after it was cut off. 

As long as I'm on a roll... The budget sure isn't going to a cell repeater:


I haven't done this much holding the phone at odd angles to get a page to load since 2002.

That's probably more on the town/cell provider and the nature of podunk. But I'm not here by choice so.. 
/Rant

To end on something more relevant though.. while your held 1500 a day. When you get out you might if your lucky get 500 once towards a place of living.
This system is fucked

Immediate  Tangible Asset Needs for basic security health and to end the terror going forward  this totals about $300 for things actually needed purchased most of it os things stolen and held from me  this is an expenditure to reduce money burnt and days hungey. actual new purchases to accomplish that about $400 usd mn police may think it's OK to allow someone robbed repeatedly moved under threat to 43k of assets they help a retired union leader steal and destroy but on a very practice level such as cooking a meal or managing my time this is hell. for the duration it's continued it may be lethal  I really look forward to a meal and dread it. but I'd rather not end up diabetic heart disease or dead. what I mean is 3 years isolated and abused losing all of my pets either seeing my parents who gaslight and threaten or no one. cooking and eating alone... not great but I seriously need to.  my hair and nails are falling out and apart.

My Needs 10/12

Nothing on this list is new. Most of it most of directly because the last 3 years of my life have been consumed by problems they created. With no bindings even to law and police refusing to allow me my property or care even when my ID is stolen.. 9mo of clean this car we made snow blow through made the landlord here unhappy it was clear I would be asked to leave end of lease from maybe 5 or 6mo in. They tried to evict the garage. Clean this car or your stuff gets donated recycled..etc I can't even wash clothes which is my fault. They steal to make fixing the dryer hard while I still don't have a glass in the cupboard but I have Clyde in the freezer and they play the let's rotate out what lie we're going to tell today game 20 days to be out of this apt (March 31 2020) still empty car broke for 6 days Marlene and Paul file domestic violence restraining orders in a family court an HR and a half from the apt they forced the lease in. 45min by freeway from their house no car
