How does someone sending an email -regardless of the content- determine your fixability? Honest question. Because I’m not seeing the connection, except that you’re upset, so everything is rolled together in a giant tangled ball of anger and despair.
It is a cumulative thing - this has happened more times than I can count and it, along with everything else I'm dealing with, else these last few months, have demonstrated just how seriously f*cked up I am - and how it is not something anyone - including me - can do anything about.
Just hold off on paying, until you can get a new plan in place, or they simply discharge your debt in their own bankruptcy. (Although, more than likely, they’ll count patient debt as assets to be moved forward, there’s always the possibility that rather than a few months relief, it will be cancelled in total.
This won't happen. I'm not being difficult or negative intentionally; this is a very old debt, incurred because my then-primary made me to the ER when there was nothing wrong (said if I didn't, she wouldn't see me). There was literally nothing wrong - she sent me the day after I called her and I was having no acute symptoms. The hospital has told me there will be no forgiveness for this.
I kind of wonder if he was trying to get the DID removed from your chart? I don’t know of course. I remember a few years ago a doctor had added to my chart that I was depressed. I was told that the doctor who put it there had to remove it. Something about the way those electronic medical records worked. I’m sure it’s different everywhere. It’s just a thought.
No, it was never in this chart. It was in the notes from a prior neurologist (and I have no idea how he got the info except I think another primary told him, again, without my permission). But you do bring up a point. Apparently it's *somewhere* because he had access to it.
I would very much take a pause / gain distance where possible...
You are super attached to your kitties, yes? So I would focus on what all needs done to get them healthy -
Very. But they are not going to get better. :-( I understand what you're saying. I was gone all day today doing laundry. I try, but I feel the very same way when I come back to the crap.
Mind safety of who is first closest to you in space. Take care of their well being for the day, and yours. It is enough.
And I'm doing that as best I can.
I have a seizure disorder and am very picky about what I tell the epileptologist. I tell the truth....but I don't discuss mental health unless it is med related........then it gets always gets messy.....The more doctors know, the more they speculate.....maybe you're having pseudoseizures? Maybe your triggers are more stress related? Maybe I can see your alters on the MRI? And I always worry about Christian doctors who believe that demons can cause seizures.
I don't tell, either. I didn't tell him, I didn't tell my last one. I did tell a primary I had years ago, who said she would keep it out of the chart (and apparently lied about that).
I have changed neurologist twice.
Just twice? I have been seeing neurologists for almost 40 years and have changed multiple times.
request a copy of your medical record, p
Yeah, I did that.
Last thing, I do not allow anyone access to my medical records, not even family members, so that they can't give letters to my physicians.....which can be put in the file.
I never give access to my files to anyone.
What is so bad about having docs talk to each other about you? I get not wanting a doc to tell a random person all about your private stuff. But isn’t it safer if docs can communicate without making you the go between?
It's bad when they provide information to someone who isn't your doctor and was essentially fired.
once you can get a bit more emotional distance, I really would encourage you to report the HIPAA violation. You’re right, the regulatory bodies exist to protect doctors, but stuck in a bit of black and white thinking... because it’s not protect doctors = down with everyone else. It’s to protect doctors, AND to protect patients, AND the field of medicine, itself. Link Removed
Except I have seen multiple cases where it worked against the patient. Like...when I saw a psychiatrist who gave my DID diagnosis directly to an employer after she had been explicit written instructions not to do so (yeah, I was let go after that).
I have filed a HIPAA complaint before for someone else. I'm just not sure I have the energy to deal with all of that.
A doctor that hasn’t had anything to do with @whiteraven in over 5 years (or 5 minutes, if they’ve been fired from their care team) IS -at best- a random person, and at worst? Someone who would not only not be given permission to know, but would be actively blocked/denied access. Much like my exHusband has zero right to my personal and confidential info, even all of the information he had legal right to access when we were married, the moment we got divorced.
Thank you, @Friday.
