In all honesty, we would probably be better off diagnosing ourselves, and each other, within a degree of slightly more accuracy than they ever could, (because sometimes it’s not always as black and white as one may think with a diagnosis, it can be a little bit of this, and also that. We live in the grey area (well, at least I think that I do).
Rather than gathering all the information that they need from us from all of these endless questionnaires that they give us, I wish they would just talk to us.
I know that it’s hard for medical professionals to have the time to sit down and familiarise themselves with every single individual, but this quick jump to ‘oh I know what’s wrong with you, (I’ve heard it a million times before) take this and come see me again in 6 to 8 weeks. Bull. Shit.
