But what do you have against chapter 3?
Still liking the rawness and honesty that gives such a strong sense of the writer.
The NHS and GPs are horrendously overstretched, MH services are horrendously under resourced but that isn't an excuse for ignorance with such a prevalent health issue. My personal bugbear is doctors who only 'get' situational depression, anxiety, etc, such as that caused by working in call centres (yep, I've worked in one of those lovely places too
) and have no understanding of more entrenched issues.
I suspect it may be something to do with their training focusing on cause and effect combined with a severe
lack of time. They are instantly searching for a cause and leap to very tall conclusions from a standing start, the conclusion is often based on the most likely or most common cause rather than a comprehensive assessment. I've experienced similar with physical health issues.
While I am ranting
I suspect there is still a prejudice around mental health issues. It isn't a broken bone they can see, it isn't an illness or deficiency they can test for, therefore 'It is all in the mind'. 'Well of course it is you @!lhfplaju! That doesn't make it any less of an illness!'
