sorry guys but need to rant about our forever loving and caring NHS. So around a year ago I had a brilliant doctor who couldn't do more for me after suffering severe depression, anxiety and psychosis then I moved to a new part of the country and the new doctor treated me like an uneducated child. Now I trained to be a doctor for 2 years so know how and what the doctors should be doing (luckily), now what they should be doing and what they do is not the same. First of all when I moved GP I was addicted to opiates after a NHS dentist prescribed codeine for too long and got physically dependant, the old GP was cutting it down at a rate that was acceptable to me (these are highly personal things and a doctor shouldn't decide how long the taper should be it should be the patient) but the new GP decided that codeine wasn't physically addictive (lies) and I was a "drug seeker". I have never felt so demeaned by anybody in my life and to rank me as a heroin addict due to a NHS mistake is a disgrace. When I told the doctor her job and what she should do she didn't like that one bit so asked me to leave without my script for codiene to cut down and stop. That ended in a criminal record for telling her to F off and refusing to leave the practice before seeing another doctor which was a reasonable request.
Next up I needed a upper GI endoscopy after a bleed and some heart tests after seeing consultants in the respective fields, 2 years later these have still not been done and are still causing problems but its not an issue according to the doctor.
Next, after this year of utter crap (lost job, uni place and pretty much everything) ended up with a currently crippling benzo addiction which I now also cant get help for im on 2mg clonazepam, 10mg diazepam and some Xanax as and when which is nearly daily for anxiety and either 10mg zopiclone, 15mg midazolam or 20mg temazepam for sleep depending on how sleepy I feel. Without them its 3 nights of no sleep and by the first 24 hours hallucinating driving me mad. Now the doctors responsibility is to get me off the drugs which he is completely not willing to do as im now labeled a drug seeker.
Is there any hope to this f**kfall at all, im at the point I want to just take a cocktail of benzos and booze and not wake up, im constantly sick with my stomach or heart and the benzo addiction and have nowhere to turn at all now.
