As was mine and far too many people
I am new here. 3 years ago I was committed to a psychiatric hospital against my will and forced to take Risperdal and abused by a psychiatrist.
I had a physical illness which I now know is mold toxicity and mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS). It’s not well known in the medical community but I was able to google my symptoms early in the illness and come up with MCAS. Not sure why they couldn’t do that.
I was diagnosed as delusional, extremely mentally ill, with psychosis due to psychotic delusions all because they were too lazy to research my symptoms. I was treated like garbage and called a liar.
I couldn’t eat because of pain and bad reactions to food and got down to 77 lbs and told the psychiatrist I needed to go to the medical hospital and get a feeding tube cuz I was starving to death and she demanded “You’re not going anywhere. You just need to get up, walk down the hall, get your food and eat it.” I was in pain with several debilitating symptoms, could barely walk, had double vision and had just laid in the bed there for 10 days. My friend had to call my doctor to get me out of there.
There’s more but it’s too long. It was a nightmare. And now it’s on my FBI background check that I was involuntarily admitted to a psych hospital. I’m doing everything I can to get justice but it’s not easy. Both hospitals and the medical board won’t do anything but I have several other places to report it to.
I am livid and believe I have PTSD because of what they did to me. They should be in jail!
