In reply to NHS and a sadly altered life, warning--pitiful, posted by ramsea on April 26, 2004, at 13:53:55

> After 20 yrs of inappropriate and counterproductive treatment which worsened my condition and ruined my career (which 40-plus means hardluck), narly cost my life andfamily too---I have at last a NHS pdoc--two of them, one mane, one female--who are right up to the minute in their research and knowledge. I am trying to get my life back now. It's true I am more stable, and the meds are mostly right I think, but I am on disability, have lost all my friends, my career prospects are nil (used to be professional) and the meds jave done a number on my appearance. I'm crying as I write this, this has been such a traumatic experience, so degrading, so humiliating. I feel I have been treated as a criminal, staff have said abusive things, I can't begin to tell you what a dehumanizing experience this has been. And for why such punishments and unfriendliness and unhelpfulnes? Because I suffer from Bipolar 1 disorder, with ADD traits, and rapid cycling. A disease I have had I believe from childhood. All along the way. Life has been an exhausting battle to appear normal and "good". Really wonder why I even bothered. Guess for my family--I do loe them so much and they have unconditionally accepted me. As I do them. But I have no lie outside my house, and that is weird for me---the traveller, the bold, bolshie, colorful arty sort of person---hahha, everything is different now,

i am very curious to hear of your experiences..... i want to return back to london ... but i wonder how long it takes to get dole and disability! and i'm hoping these are enough to pay for a decent private doctor if i can somehow save up enough to pay for room and board myself (in some ghetto of london) ....
i might go back to seeing my old private doc, cuz i know he at least believes in ADD+bipolar, but he will probably charge 90 quid a visit minimum again ... uggggg....
