Enough is enough!
Why do they make it such a stressful experience when you call G.P's?
They don't take me seriously, do they really think I am crying for nothing and lazy as opposed to actually being housebound and in a serious amount of pain?
I'm fed up of this treatment and I will no longer be putting up with it, I am struggling to cope with my pain without meds and I am sick of not being treat with respect or taken seriously by them, enough is enough!
Even if it means I now have to write formal complaint after formal complaint and document everything, something seriously needs to be done; I am not prepared to be disabled for the rest of my life and I have the right to help and to not be made to suffer like this.
I am crying as I need their help, so they should be helpful, instead of saying inappropriate opinionated remarks that there is no need for, are unjustifiable and unprovoked.
Today I am proud to say that I finally cut myself off and stated that I do not have to justify my condition or my difficulty getting to the surgery when they are already aware of it. I need a home visit on Wednesday and if they refuse then I won't get seen and will be made to suffer again and that is not my choice, that is their choice to refuse me the help I need.
So hopefully they will sort things out for then.
I am sick of them acting like this is all one big joke, it may be for them but SPD needs to be taken seriously, it has ruined many things for us in our lives and is continuing to do so yet we stand proud that we remain fighters and optimistic (as much as we can be) and take on any obstacles thrown at us.
They may perceive me as a burden or a problem or a complicated case, yet they have no idea what we have to live with every second of everyday. They should be thankful for that and how lucky they are.
I am merely a young lady that should not be going through these problems at 22 years old and SPD may have ruined lots of things for us and made us suffer but the Dr's and staff and health professionals need to open their eyes at how much they are now causing us to suffer!
I'ts about time SPD was taken seriously even if they continue to refuse to take me seriously.
