For 4 years i have been poorly. i have been abused my staff and the system. ive been told my symtoms are in my head, told ive been abused in past- when i haven't; injected without consent, test results hidden etc etc....7 doctors screamed at me i was starving myself, and i was treated as a pysch patient..for what was an overactive thyroid gland.

Oh my, that is aweful.

And to think that there are commercials on tv now that suggest we need to protect doctors from lawsuits, limit the reasons and amount of cash people can sue for.

(Not that you can put a price tag on time and misery.) It is time from your life you will never get back at least in this life.

I hate making blanket statements..... but,
I have gotten really fed up with the system.

I am really all about alternative therapy and treatments now, as, my faith in the system in just....
diminished.

I also just found out today that on top of having a virus for the last year, I also have ovarian systs and
idiopathic (from unknown source) bleeding in my belly.

Hm.

Can I REALLY take Effexor for that doc?

HA!

I would like to sue.... for the first time in my life.
I am not keen on that much normally, but I lost so much, emotionally and monitarily through this.

Hugs for you.

Blue

Glad you still check out the site.

I don't know what they gave me, it was so horrific, i can't get over it. I got copies of all my records they made on me at the hospital, and they are FULL of unbelievable stories, and damn right LIES. Who do they think they are??!!

It went on for so long, and when doctors label you as a 'nutcase' you have no chance do you!!!!!!!!!

On one letter, a doctor had written to my GP and said 'I do not want to see this arkward patient anymore, i can do without the stress - then he put lots of exclaimation marks' - THE NERVE OF THEM.

Another of them, who sat threatening me and creating yet more stories of god knows what, i told him that he was not fit to be a doctor, he turned round and said, 'you're not fit to be a human being' - so much for the caring profession hey! - turns out AGAIN, it wasn't in my head, and a ct scan showed a tumour on my ovary!!! - I think he thought I must have put it there myself!

What can I say....! Keep posting and hope your having better luck than me with these god-like creatures.

sorry, here's me waffling on about myself...

was it arkward getting a diagnosis for your illnesses? I honestly do feel for you, and hope your not feeling to bad. Take care


After thought :
(..if anti-depressants worked, why do people taking them overdose on them?!)

Hi

Wow maybe there is some universal medical school of bitter doctors and bad manners.

I haven't experienced any falsification of records....
but I did have trouble with diagnosis.

I presented with a sudden breathing problem. (air hunger) The chest x ray showed my lungs were clear. I passed pulmonary function test, while on steroids.

I underwent a pelvic exam which was normal.
I had a head ct scan which was normal.
I had cbc's done and they were normal.

Heart tests were outright refused.

The breathing problem continued.

I was given asthma meds but not diagnosed with asthma.
I was given steroids though they said my chest was clear.

I developed worsening menstral cramps... bowel irregularities....constant stomach pain with no pattern.

They did an endoscopy of my stomach and said it was normal.

Through it all, I was put on Effexor and Ativan and told all of my symptoms were a result of anxiety.

I disagreed but tried it in case I was wrong.
Then as the tests were coming back normal, I began to believe that it MUST have been anxiety.

After the last test, a stomach test, was "normal",
and they still refused to take me off the Effexor,
I changed doctors.

He checked my blood. Low red cells.
He checked my stomach. H Pylori virus.
He scaned my abdomen. Ovarian cyst with possible endometriosis.
He Ct scanned my lungs. A granuloma was found in lower right lobe.

I could see missing one thing. But every thing they tested was normal.
He tested all of the same things within months and they were all abnormal...?

I digress.
