For the record, I do have psychological problems and yes I have always taken things too personally, it's one of my issues and I know several things that will be resolved in good time. I won't mention them because it just seems as if I am trying to back things up with other unspecified ailments.
I note that Brook has made good, intelligent points and is not the idiot that I thought.
However, I also think that he is a bit intolerant of people with issues. It is a shame that things ended that way. Maybe another time, things will be better.
Bushidobadboy, thank you for your 2 consistently good to neutral posts. My reply is contained amongst the spiel below.
I have not lost touch with reality. I am not irrational, delusional, paranoid, psychotic or any such things that would affect my perception of reality.
I did not say that anyone was threatening me.
I did not see the joke as very light hearted, although now I will accept that the post was presumed silly due to it's subject matter. Fair enough.
I am pathetic for having psychological issues? Yes, usually that's the case with psychological issues.....
That's why they are called psychological issues and there are many.
Whether it be schizo based, paranoia, psychosis, delusions, bipolar, bpd, hpd, ad/hd (3types)kleptomania, dysthymia, apd, social avoidance, ied, anxiety disordered, phobia based, to name a few from the top of my head.
I doubt that any family on the planet gets away without at least a spread of psychological issues, no matter how mild or deeply buried. Everyone knows someone etc.
The doctor has referred me to a psychiatrist on one occasion and psychotherapy as well. I am on anti-deps which don't seem to do anything as I believe stimulants are more appropriate, although I will be attending to what I think may be a strongly estradiol based issue. But it could be the other suspect.
The doctor is matter of fact and did not draw out the magic cupping test. Maybe it was just a placebo test because he did not consider I had the hormone issue.
To be honest the NHS labs in the UK do have a website about all of the tests and they do mention estradiol/testosterone etc, so I will really make sure to gather evidence so I don't use up NHS resources on imaginary issues.
Blood tests are so easy these days, as well... Maybe he is just a palm off merchant...time will tell. Either way, he is not arrogant so that helps a lot. After all, he IS a doctor, no matter about his draconian test.
BTW, I do have the capability to get angry, but it tends to drain me mentally and there is really no need for it, so I do try and take a neutral stance as I don't want a troll sticker on my forehead.
I will update in due course, so that there is some clarity.
