While I was in hospital doctor informed DVLA I had cannabis in my system so DVLA sent me a letter stating I can not drive Doh that was September 2018 while I was in hospital. I kept my door ajar to get some air while I slept one night I heard some one snoring and got up walked to my door opened it there was a man standing there sleep walking it shit the life out of me this place is crazy so after two weeks they said I can go home but I need fill out and sign form for DVLA before they let me leave I was desperate to get out this place so signed my life away now January 2020 I'm still fighting to get my licence back every time I apply they state they need doctors letter ? doc writes letter then they state due to pycosis we gonna leave it 3 months then reapply ive done this process three times now and they still playing games how can this be possible I did not lose my licence in a court of law ive been clean of drugs since july 2018 so what have I got to do to resolve this problem can anyone help me with this ? ive not seen my seven year old boy for 18 months now due to the mother not knowing the effects of bipolar ? so the moral to this story is you go get help then the system f"cks you over I'm stuck in a village with no licence and cant see my boy its been 18 months now and I'm not on meds no more due to the build up of toxins in my body I just need this nightmare to end Please god can you hear me so people be careful what you wish for what are the side effects to them meds you takin? ive been taken for a ride I just want to get off now and live my life So let me see my child and return my licence so I can go pick him up not much to ask is it ?

Are you getting any support from psychiatrist, social worker and GP?

Whilst Bi polar can be managed in some cases without medication, I beleive the majority of us who have it take some medications such as a mood stabiliser and an anti depressent.

I recently had to reapply for my licence - I have to do so every year. They wrote to my psychiatrist and he replied to the DVLA. My licence was then renewed.

As for you son's mother, could you encourage her to join this forum so that she can ask questions about bi polar?

There are some people been in the mental hospital for years I got to know a few one chap called carl he tried killing himself, me and him got on well we hung out with each other every day he was just lonely like myself he split up with his girl like me There was a old boy in there I felt sorry for him they fed him meds that he kept pooing himself There was a solicitor in there Edwin he stated he upset the government so they keeping in there to keep him quiet ? very intelligent man we got on really well I used to make him cups of tea everyday his room was full of books he been in there ages bless him hope he all good another man called Lawrence he was in there for hard drug addiction he stated he was going to live with his dad in Scotland when he gets out to get away from the old crowd I rang him he now in wales working as a barman then a chap called Richard he was my fav we got on like a house on fire I got all there mobile numbers but can never get hold of any of them there fones always off for some strange reason but Laurence I contacted he do doing good this was my crowd when I was there all top blokes just had breakdowns ive learned never label someone till you get to know them because we all searching for the same thing happiness I thought ive got all these new friends I'm blessed but after leaving I cant get hold of no one so back to being lonely I guess but my health is back to normal due to not smoking drugs it was my escape from the norm but it messed with my head in the end so now I'm bored to death smoking ten fags a day but I need stay drug free so I can get access to my son and get my licence back but it seems like its taking forever? If you are in a strange place or acting strange go check in the mad house it might turn in to some great fun like me those were some of the best days ever I did not want it to end but like they say All Good Things Come To A End so back to the norm I go One Love For The NHS they feed me the best food ever and Maidstone madhouse was like a hotel trust I did not wanna leave So If Require Help Go Check In To Maidstone get your head straight and make some friends what a great place staff were amazing I feel for one of the nurses but she was married doh Give Dartford A Miss no fun there baby trust Dohaheho XxExX

The DVLA have to go through so many checks. Stops them giving licences to those who shouldn't have them. Or thats what they claim. I suspect its more a case that any renewal/grant of a licence that isn't straight forward gets passed to an over worked, under funded and under paid poor minion, who will get the job done eventually. First time I had to renew my licence after telling them of the bi polar it took 6 months.

Hospital is a funny place. I've been in there 6 times over the years. Sometimes I was wishing to just get out, it felt like gaol. Other times I thought it was fun because there were all these new friends with their own stories. So it's a mixed bag.

Sorry to hear about your problems with not being able to see your son and so forth. Just keep in mind that these problems, for the most part, will be resolved. With the right meds and/or talking therapy you will be able to get back to a stable life. All the best, Andy.
