I was hit by a car while riding a motorbike, whilst most people were kind their were a few who made the assumption, based on my appearance that I was a drug user. After having been hit by a car and already suffering from depression to be placed in this category and given the weakest pain killers as well as have social workers asking me if I use amphetamines. I was offended and I was disappointed given the fact I have helped people off of drugs this was a real low blow and led to me to discharging myself, as I no longer wanted to feel categorised in to a category that is not me. I do thank Royal Perth for some of the doctors and nurses hospitality though to the few who made me feel belittled and discriminated against me on biased bases I am not going to thank you or wish u well.
