The latest revelation - I SAW THIS WHEN i was visiting my cardiologist last week.

I was feeling down late week because I had to set boundaries with my estranged siblings and that is not an easy task. So I walk in feeling sad and my doctor starts asking why I had to go into emergency and access psychiatry back in Nov. Well talking about the baby being taken into custody was not easy and I got tearful. I am a highly sensitive empath.

My doctor then jumped the gun and told me that she thinks I am depressed and need more therapy. She told me that I should be on meds and then I spent an hour talking to her social worker cause she didn;t want the baby taken away because she thought I was depressed.

THAT IS NOT THE CASE. I'm rather upset with her and I am getting tired of the bs now. I just jumped through a bunch of hoops and was told there is no clinical depression what so ever and now child welfare has no concerns about me.

I am getting tired of dealing with ignorant, narrow minded individuals who make assumptions and jump the gun. I'm at the point where I am saying that I am a space alien parading around as a human. So now I am at the point when I start dealing with the professionals - right off the bat I mention that I am highly sensitive.

I can't help who I am and I have feelings and have to live with them. I'm getting sick of dealing with the prejudice out there and because of that my baby fell victim.....I'm starting to see the pattern now.

Thank you for listening......

After talking to the social worker for an hour - this part is highly enlightening. She recognized that my high sensitivty is a gift and she had said that I was the type who needed alone time 20 minutes a day to re-energize and I told her yup. At least I was understood and not sent down to emergency to get an assessment done! YAY

Cynn - I have made a decision last year that I will not see a doctor unless I am literally on my death bed.

And that includes psychologists.

I simply will NOT.

They can all get fuked.

But it's up to you

Only a psychiatrist can tell you if you have clinical depression or not. A doctor/therapist can not simply diagnose you with depression. I agree, it is really annoying dealing with these types of people. I was made to go to a family therapist when I was a teenager because my mother got really mad at me one night and kicked me out of the house. The school found out because the next day my mother called the school looking for me. The county made us go to therapy. Anyway, the therapist concluded that I MUST be depressed because I drank on the weekends and had sex with my boyfriend... typical teenage stuff. Thankfully all this therapist could really do was schedule me to see a psychiatrist which I declined.

Vapor, you should definitely go for check ups with your doctor. You never know what conditions you may have and the earlier they catch things, the better off you'll be. My aunt NEVER went to the doctor. She seemed healthy, but she died suddenly at the age of 46 from a heart attack. She never knew she had high cholesterol.

amowls..

We all die at some point. I can't predict or prevent that.

The opposite thing happened to me last yr, when I had something extremely minor and due to some seriously unprofessional doctors it spiraled into a huge drama in my life.

So I'd prefer not to see a doctor.

As I said - I'll go for significant things.. Like if I found a lump in my breast then I'd go. It would have to be something that I think is serious enough.

Otherwise I'm pretty disappointed really.

Other than surgery and pain relief.. western medicine doesn't do much - in my opinion.
