Dear Ben

People who have, or have had mental illness are treated as second-class citizens.

People who are depressed are not given adequate medical attention and all of their symtoms are attributed to their mental illness.

I would advise you to continue to doctor-shop, but this time around DO NOT MENTION that you have ever had treatment for mental illness. Do not mention that anyone in your family ever had any kind of mental illness or substance abuse.

Doctors just automatically assume that you are exhibiting psychosomatic symptoms or that you are seeking drugs to party on, or that you can use sleeping pills or narcotics to commit suicide with, or that any use of narcotics would lead to narcotics abuse.

remember: they only know what you tell them.
