"Accidentally over dosed on pregablin"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Most of the Staff at A&E were lovely to me. Yet at the end of my stay, a young student doctor told me everyone thought I was an idiot. Afterwards I couldn't stop verbalising my embarrassment as a loud tic. I plan to cut myself tonight because of him. I find it hard to cope with the self hatred that the dr has triggered in me. I hate myself already at least they could be polite. And I will probably take more pills to cope with my suffering.
