thanks for the multiple diagnosis information. 've just read it. it's really helpful. i went to a cpa meeting last month and saw the same psychiatrist that i had when i was in hospital last year. he then had labelled me with 're-current depression' but i thought this was a bit strange seems as my understanding of re-current means more than once, and for me it's all just one that had lasted a year and included ptsd. i couldn't believe my ears when he said that while in hospital i didn't show any signs of ptsd and that he was surprized to see it in my notes, in a tone of voice like i was just making it up. he thought he could just question me and rule it out, which he tried. (the reason i was in hospital was because i was suicidal due to the fact the the man in the incidents sentancing was due and if he got off, the fear of him coming after me made me make plans to end it all.) just because he missed it, (how is beyond me) he said it couldn't possible be so. Luckily my therapist was there and chipped it that i definatly had ptsd and that it was present before i went into hospital. therapist 1 psychatrist 0. (my therapist works for the traumatic stress service so he knows what he's talking about). i hate the way he made my feel, having to justify my ptsd, fighting for the label that encompases all my issues, just because he was wrong, and me wishing i didn't have it too. what a wanker!
