"...and because of the psychiatric assessment the doctor I was under, arranged for November, I couldn't get the free care that I should have qualified for, as it seems people thought I was a risk to myself or others. Some people can be very narrow-minded."
Indeed. For those who follow the govn't bureaucracy's rules, which are also narrow-minded.
Sorry you had to go thru an ordeal in hospital, but at least you got the treatment you'd been waiting in line for so long. Took an accident and not a self-cutting to get you the immediate treatment you needed, ironic, huh? And then get labelled an alcoholic for assuaging the physical pain while waiting for treatment so damn long, lol. What turkeys...
Hope you continue on the mend.
