getting taken seriously
not meaning to sound like a hate preacher or anything but
i was wondering how other people do getting taken seriously in the system and how it affects or has affected them do you see it as a place you go to for a chat or some sort of roach motel?
personally i find it very hard to talk with them..have never actually told them the truth or my history which would be required yes i kept them entertained and told them how i was currently for a little while but that's about it
in return i wasn't taken seriously and given a flimsy at best instant diagnosis whilst being misunderstood 80 percent of the time
ive seen other psychotics in they're "prime" and they are completely different to me i was controlled happy and quiet even if i was the most depressed i had ever been (the actual episode and the fallout)
i occasionally have my creative moments and aggression (never told them about that either) and my manic depression which they ignored along with a silly serious childhood thing they didn't seem to understand
occasionally i will have to deal with a stalker due to some bad personal choices and have to try not to fall into they're trained ways in many aspects they are more unstable than i yet i am the one they labeled so
i don't take my meds and i don't need them i achieved partial remission and the part i kept is probably the part you want
from my own personal experiences i would say its something to be avoided for someone in my situation ide just rather not know they dont even deserve my experiences
