If you have a personality clash or don't get along or what ever the reason,I think you should speak up explain that this person is not helping you and that you would like the help of someone else.

By law your allowed a 2nd opinion or a change of doctor, but they do try to cover their own ass's and make it difficult. because if their treatment of you is seen to be ineffective or incompetent it can make them look bad aswell so they will try and manipulate the situation, or take advantage of your home situation and try an get you carted off to assisted living so it looks like you were at fault. the early intervention team recently did this to me so we've parted ways, like you i didnt like their attitude towards me or there sudden change in tact and treatment of me so i decided to ask for a change of team or doctor, still waiting though been 5 weeks.

Don't take it out on your brother - he could be your best friend when you stop and think quietly about things. Try to be a bit slower, and think about what the professionals have said, and if you want more information the write it own first, and then ask them. Be a bit cooler:cool:

goodness knows!
Maah, you shouldn't have to be upset like this it is just compounding your situation and making it worse.

If you feel as strongly about this when you've calmed down a little, then google your rights, so you can be sure, if they were to become hostile.
Have you an Advocacy service in your area? you could always go and seek advice from them.

You could also get in touch with your Primary Care Trust and make a formal complaint. As has already been mentioned you are entitled to a second opinion, but they don't always make it an easy process. Your Consultant would be approached and would have to consent to it.

I have been in the same situation and it stressed me out, you need to avoid any extra stress at the moment.

You could consider going it alone and get your medication prescribed by your GP. Also you need to think about what may happen in the future if you needed the Services again.

Take advice if you can, and look after yourself.

I hope you get the help you deserve, i feel for you. they say you need to exsept your problems and thats the first and hardest thing to do, maybe keep a diary of your voices, and show that to them. I'm glad you can talk to your brother and cpn.

I take it this is a government health care system? If it is then us, that live in the states are screwed, because our government officials are craming it down our throats,

cant believe you are still having problems with your care team, there is such a thing as choose and book so you can choose your own docs and book your own apps, see your g.p its your right to see a doc you are happy with and get rid of the ones you are not!!:)

I agree with Intro, you do have a right to complain and you can do this if you're really prepared to stand up for yourself.

Considering the way you're feeling about the whole situation, I'd do this if I were you.

Good luck and I hope things work out. :flowers:
