Not Psychotic Enought? Watch
Even my doctor thinks this is slightly unfair for me to go without a evaluation, but her only solution was live with it and to read up the symptoms so I know what to look out for. I'm well read on the symptoms before I even saw a doctor, due to my mother trying to convince me I have Bipolar. What do I do? Is this even fair to be untreated/not evaluated?
Don't feel that this rejection somehow invalidates what you might be going through - mental health teams are really stretched, and sometimes this means that they'll refuse to see you when they really ought to. It's happened to me a few times - one time I was even rejected just because I didn't have a mobile phone!
If you can't get anywhere with being referred by your current doctor, you could try switching to another one, or contacting an advocacy service who can fight on your behalf (try looking at Mind for more information).
Hope things get sorted for you soon.
This is actually the 3rd time I've changed doctors due to problems with treatments and generally not happy with the doctors. Plus I will be moving to a new city at the end of September for University. My doctor did mention that she thought about referring me to the counseling service at the doctors, but she there is a huge waiting list and the chances of me being seen before a move away is slim.
Thank you for the link, I will check it out now.
But I think with the way that my doctor keeps hinting, I'm going to have to wait till I move to deal with anything.
Thank you for your help
