"I feel no one listens or cares"
Posted by velahp83 (as ),
I feel like no one is listening or caring as to what I have to say.
I have a condition where I am affected by multiple chemicals, that puts me in a state where I cannot speak or act coherently. This affects my ability to live in profound ways. I have an extensive medical history, and when visiting different hospitals, I do not believe they read my file or communicate to one another, leading to incorrect diagnoses - I feel staff simply believe I am crazy when I am instead under the effect of multiple medications mixing in ways they shouldn't. I need a proper care plan, the one I have currently looks to me like it was written by a five year old.
When I visit the Emergency Department (of both hospitals) I feel they simply try and get me out as quickly as possible. I do not have the skills or the eloquence to get these issues fixed, and need someone to help me address them - I just need someone to sit down and listen to me.
I have had these conditions since I was born, and have been living with them since. All of my existing diagnosis are available on my file, but I believe when I am taken to Emergency, no one will read it.
