Having been assessed by both a social worker & a cpn , they decided that I should take part in a psycho educational group for people with borderline personality disorder and have so referred me, despite my explaining that I have previously done it already and as it is a diagnosis I disagree with, the BPD group I attended only confirmed why I didn't and don't relate to BPD ! I feel like it's a case of it's in my notes so therefore it must be true ! Hmm also in my notes is I am on the waiting list for assessment with the team who can identify and diagnose ASD formally Aspergers which I do identify with !
I feel too like if I don't do the group I'll be seen as none compliant !
The workers also requested a medication review with one of the medics , turned out a medic did a review without me present , huh how can the medic possibly know how I am struggling with medications ?
Lastly and this is perhaps the corker ! Having problems with the housing environment where I live and finding the local council housing not to be helpful, the SPA worker has referred me to the councils community support worker service ! This has made feel like I was wrong to seek help !
