There may be a missing component of the three fundamentals that this method finds crucial for developing a primary self-structure (Cooper & Lessler, 2015). According to Dr. Tom Young (2016), three critical self-object relationships to achieve a healthy ego include: mirroring, idealizing, and twinship. Vicki entered the homeless program because she was asked to leave her home and had nowhere else to stay. Due to her car accident, Vicki fears that she has destroyed her relationship with her whole family. This failure is heightened because of her previous experience of self-object failure in her role as a daughter when Vicki dropped out of school when she was only sixteen years old.
Doctors not warning their patients about all of the warnings of weaning off these medications can cause them to start doing harder drugs.

In the book Sickened, we see a daughter named Julie Gregory made sick by her mom for the attention of medical professionals. Her mom would feed her “suckers” which were actually matches (Gregory, 21). There were days where it would be two o’clock in the afternoon, and she had not eaten anything (Gregory, 131). Her mother would bleach her hair so many times; it was on the edge of falling off (Gregory, 107). Julie Gregory said it was usually after her “mom slipped the little white pill under” her tongue that her migraines got worse (Gregory, 32).
When Lia Lee was discharged from the Hospital, her parents were instructed to give her 250 milligrams of ampicillin twice a day, believing that they were capable of doing so. However, it didn’t occur to the doctors that they weren’t able to administer her medications correctly, which caused Lia to continue having seizures. After the doctors prescribed more medications to take, the mother wrote a note stating that she would not give the medication while she’s at home, increased one her medications, Phenobarbital to 60mg and hasn’t given her Tegretol in four days because she ran out.

After twelve men and women debated the case for 13 hours over three days, they said Yates did not know her actions were wrong when she drowned her children ("Andrea Yates Case”). In order to prove to the jurors that Yates was mentally ill, testimonies that demonstrated her illness, depression, hospitalization records, and suicide attempts were documented. They also had evidence that she had been given drugs that were not appropriate, was released from the hospital early, was overmedicated, and had discontinued taking her medicine two days before the kills transpired (Paquette). A week after James Neaville left the Missouri State Hospital’s psychiatric ward in April 1987, he told authorities that he was hired as an assassin by James Beckman to shoot President Reagan with an Uzi submachine gun. Later, he would t... ... middle of paper ... ....
