"I need their help but I was treated without respect"

About: Basildon University Hospital

(as the patient),

Today i attended outpatient department re pain management... this was painful. I feel I was treated with no respect, and I was frequently told people like me who lack motivation, lack of sleep ( i have sleep apnea which i have a specialist machine to keep me breathing through the night) and unemployed need to get my act together. That is the edited edition.

My examination was painful and in five minute was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I had no x ray or MRI scan and have never seen this doctor before

I have been told by a different Dr's every time I go i have something different. and now been put on another medication. (trial)

I am no longer going to be treated like this, I regularly exercise, monitor my food and do not drink or take drugs. i have worked all my life, my children are grown up and employed and have got their respect and values from working. I refuse to let some of the staff at Basildon hospital treat me with what I perceive to be contempt and lack of feelings or respect.

My goal is to get better and I needed their help. All i got was insulted and treated poorly
