It seems the homework may well have been done. I would still force the issue for them to check. Maybe it’s worth trusting this NHS trust more than your previous one, as you have said yourself they were the ones who sorted the ASD issue the other Trust in Essex missed for all those years…
Sometimes these things require some fine tuning.
I suffered majorly due to a diagnosis of Drug-Induced Psychosis when I was 17, as I was on AP’s for a couple of years, and eventually relapsed off meds and was placed in a very vulnerable and dangerous situations where I was lucky to have no been killed or put in prison - but got told I had Paranoid Schizophrenia.
That’s why I view the diagnostic process as very significant, as without it people treating cannot get it right.
If the mood issues exist, but are more of a side issue, they may not diagnose it, or in your case, they might review. They tell me I have depression and anxiety, but I have no official diagnosis, and I am treated with meds for the anxiety.
Either way if it results in better treatment and understanding I don’t think it’s a bad thing.
I would however be making a complaint about the mis-diagnosis - if that’s the case, as this can cause so many problems with being put on potentially damaging meds you don’t need.
Overall I think you have more faith in this team vs. your previous, so I would consider if it was me how strongly I felt the quality of treatment where you are now is vs. what the others were like, and whether you can have faith
I cannot answer that, as I have only been treated by the same trust all my life as I have not moved out of my hometown yet
Wish you the best with it @firemonkey I am just giving you my thoughts on the issues relating to your thread. I hope it doesn’t come across wrong - Just trying to help you if I can as you have my respect.
