Ah, P.I.E.R. How you and I are going to argue…
What’s that? Why are you going to that? You have never mentioned that psychosis specifically was on the cards! I bet these are the things you are thinking right now. Well… when you have found an answer comment because I don’t know. I mean I know I hallucinate but hallucinating and psychosis are two different things right? Well that’s what I was lead to believe. Firstly, my psychiatrist said that the hallucinations were mood related for me and once I had treated the moods the hallucinations would go. He made it sound like no big deal. Secondly, the bipolar and psychosis specialist made me believe that she treated both and no specialised in one. Thirdly, it’s a bit late for ‘Early Recovery’. Early recovery passed you by several months ago.
But you know what pisses me off most about this?
The fact they don’t talk to me. They didn’t say to me once: I think we need to look closely at your psychotic symptoms because of this, this and this. I think you should become a part of P.I.E.R because this, this and this and this is what we believe to be going on… Instead they say we have an appointment to look closely at ambiguous matters and then send me a 2 paged letter with my line of contact and a leaflet about P.I.E.R which after my dinner I will take a picture of and link to my photo blog just because it’s easier if you see it. You know what?! If you guys can’t be bothered to talk to me about MY treatment then I can’t be bothered to divulge or the deepest, darkest secrets of my soul and make it easy for you. NO! YOU ARE GOING TO WORK FOR IT!
