Diagnosed immediately?

I have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness from a doctor whom I've visited a grand total of...one visit. Basically I introduced myself to him, we talked for 20 minutes (not the full hour I was guaranteed, although that didn't take away any of the $40 I had to pay to see him) and then I was diagnosed.

Seriously. I thought these things were complex and I was always told that an immediate diagnosis ...

Diagnosed immediately?

I have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness from a doctor who I've only seen ONE TIME. There will be more visits but damn...I was always taught that an immediate diagnosis is irresponsible?

People just don't understand


I have various forms of depression as I'm sure alot of you out there do as well. Most people jsut don't understand depression, the diffrences in them and how they can really effect a person. If they don't say 'just get over it' or they just don't care. Or if they try to udnerstand they really can't. Depression is a chronic disease just like all the others, as you know can end in ...

equal employment opportunity

People with mental disabilities are the most discriminated group. In British Columbia, the public sector and educational institutions would usually severely demoted or fired employees that are founded to have a mental disability. How do I know – this has happened to me and many of my friends. We could have taken our employers to court and maybe even won back our jobs. This victory is usually very short-lived though as the employer would find ...
