Let’s talk About Stress, Baby…

  1. I’m sorry to hear that you’re being inadequately medically treated as well. My favourite new gp admitted that my medical notes said my inflammation and neuropathy from physical trauma (untreated subluxation of the hip) are ignored, instead I’m labelled as having a mental problem…like some hysterical woman from Victorian times! I said I’ve told the doctors *why I hurt/what the problem is* ever since I had treatment from professional physiotherapists, 2008 onwards. He told me that they dismiss that because it’s privately paid…
    It’s enough to make you depressed and anxious. (Yes, I have that too).
    All the best. I hope you get some help. 🙂 xo

    1. Thank you for your kind words, and for taking the time to reply 😊.

      The way women in particular are treated in the system is beyond surreal. I know the NHS is having a true love affair with CBT at the moment, but how is that supposed to actually help someone whose joints pop out of place, or whose heart is enlarged and slowly failing? It’s truly shocking, and a very clear case of gender bias.

      I’m so sorry to hear that your doctors have been cherry-picking and distorting the evidence in your notes to try and convince themselves that you have a psychological disorder (what the hell were they trying to prove???), and I hope you’re on the way to getting the correct treatment, now.

      I don’t think I’d be so angry if they just apologised for their mistakes, once in a while…

      Stay strong! 💖

      1. I’m in the process of getting access to my NHS records, but they’re stringing it out! I also found a No Win No Fee lawyer to fight for compensation and fair treatment…I’m being denied the pain clinic despite them giving me the strong pain meds.
        Keep strong too. Sometimes you get the wrong people in charge, it’s not us.
