All of these so called professional people like the ER doctors, the Judge in the psych Hospital, thought I was abusing illicit drugs.
They assumed that just because I had a SZ diagnosis, this automatically made me a drug addict.
The truth is that I don’t even take Advil!
This even pissed off my brother.
Not every one with a SZ dx abuses drugs, or is poor or homeless.
The pros like to put us into tiny boxes.
I’m sick of the Stereotypes!
I know you aren’t an addict at all, but you have tried illicit substances like LSD before, right?
I also got sick without ever trying an illegal substance.
Did Mescaline once before in college.
One doctor thought I was planning a mass murder like the Virginia Tech incident. I thought that was bologna.
I think my doctor thinks I might be a weird pervert, then again, he doesn’t really talk to or listen to me.
My doctor and her nurse said I threatened her even tho all I did was recount some intrusive thoughts I’d had at a previous appt. Now they’re saying I’m “dangerous” sz… it’s a crock. I’ve been restrained in the hospital before cuz I was trying to hurt myself, but I’ve only been in 2 fights my whole life. I guess I need to dress in a more passive fashion.
Same here, have never touched illegal drugs but feel as though medical professionals look down upon me as having done so. I was diagnosed late in life at the age of 45.
They told me I was a danger to myself and others. All because a made a few phone calls trying to get help With my delusions. Then after they arrested me be they told me that I was suicidal the next day, which was a bunch of crap. They took my guns away and told me they are mine they had no right to take them but they weren’t giving me them back unless I got a lawyer and spent more on the lawyer than the guns were worth.
Then once I went to the ER because I got chemicals in my eyes. I made the mistake of telling them I had sz because they asked medical history. They then had trouble believing me and one of the nurses was like “oh no not another one of them”. Really pissed me off.
My pdoc thinks I’m a junkie. Wants me to hand over my valium to mr turtle to dole out to me!
I maybe take a valium once every three weeks.
