I spent my entire therapy session Wednesday discussing my initial psychiatrist's appointment of Aug. 22nd and subsequent events with my trusted long-time therapist. In great detail.
It was her opinion based on everything that transpired that I was the victim of a physician who committed flagrant ethical violations. As a result, my circumstances are far worse than they should be.
I have researched possible courses of action. I intend to file formal complaints with the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulation and the Michigan Chapter of the American Psychiatric Association. Within the next weeks, by the end of 2012, as soon as I can gather any evidence and put together an affidavit documenting my experiences and a brief of relevant administrative case law for the state and ethics rules for the APA.
I did nothing to deserve what happened to me. As I said before, I went to this dr. with the expectation of help and left there being made to feel like a criminal, completely degraded and destroyed.
just would caution that you not get bogged down in righting this wrong. right is right and wrong is wrong. but sometimes the greater right is to let the wrong go.
not saying you should do that, just saying that at some point that might be your choice, and it is ok to let a wrong go to do right for yourself.
