:eek: to make a long story short, i was misdiagnosed as bipolar & had qualified for medicaid, so here i am with this medicaid card & i used it to go to a doctor (not a mental one).

in an attempt to AVOID a confrontation, i wrote down what reply i would give if anyone got NOSY & asked WHY i was on medicaid (because i want to start fresh with a new doctor-i dont want them to know i was misdiagnosed). but then it happened today, i went to my doctor for restless leg pill refill & she got NOSY "why are you on medicaid?". so i said my reply i had prepared "its nothing medical, so you dont have to be concerned". did it stop there? NO! she was "nice" about it but continued to go on till i was forced into a corner. so i said what happened. she seemed to take it ok-trouble is, what did she write into my chart that every doctor there will see in the future? did she write "she's bipolar & wont admit it.", or perhaps "she was diagnosed bipolar but isnt on pills for it." these kind of statements may cause some other doctor there to PROBE ME FOR ANSWERS TOO.

you see, i wanted to AVOID CONFRONTATIONS like this. plus, i was hoping to go a doctor & NOT have to "be prepared for battle" so to speak, every time i go in!

so, do you have advice about how to deal with my anxiety over this? i'm sitting here & resenting the fact that NOW i have to go in there & be prepared for other "confrontations", like "why are you on medicaid?' "oh, so you're bipolar?!" and so on. i also am dealing with feelings of "hurt" because i dont appreciate the possibility of their MISTREATING me (which is what i'd call it) by their PROBING CONFRONTATIONS. so, i'm hurt & anxiety ridden. do you have any advice on how to handle this?

one things for sure, i dont want that false "bipolar diagnosis" tagging along with me like a lost puppy. this is dumb. why did she have to get so NOSY when i told her "it was nothing medical"? what did she think she was, more than just a doctor, but my financial advisor too?! i dont think my "personal finances & billing information" is a doctors business- her billing department handles the insurance NOT her, plus it's not her place to ask WHY ARE YOU ON MEDICAID-all anyone needs to knw is "what insurance do you have" NOT "why".

thats how it is. i just wished she wouldve kept her nose to herself.

so, now what? i'm literally sitting here preparing in case "the worst" happens, like maybe some doctor there will "see i was bipolar, want those medical records, & refuse to treat me without them"!! you never know what to expect, i guess. i'm prepared to leave that office permanently if they get to that point of expecting me hand over records that are NO GOOD (i made that mistake once before, & that FOOL used it against me later when i came in for menopause symptoms of "hot flashes & mood swings", he said "mood swings?? that's bipolar!" & he gave me a presription for bipolar pills!!! he had a PRESUMPTION that "any doctor who said you were bipolar MUST be right!").

i'm facing it- if it turns i cant use THIS doctor either (like the previous one who said "thats bipolar" for having menopause), then i'm NOT going to use that medicaid card anymore- using it seems to "give it away" because doctors are familiar with what it takes to get medicaid & they see that my chart says i've never been pregnant (having kids is one way to qualify for medicaid, & the other is a disabling illness!). so therefore this means it was an "illness" that caused me to get on medicaid- so, there's goes the PROBING MEDICAID QUESTIONS!

ahh!! i was crying over this earlier. i just dont want to be treated that way because i was misdiagnosed!

so, what would you all suggest for this emotional reaction. plus, i wont mind if you give your opinions about what she did with that NOSY QUESTIONING stuff.

thanks ahead of time.

  • also, can any of you give me advice on how YOU would handle this? where you may have to go to another doctor & you dont want those BAD RECORDS following you along. what would you do with this issue? you see, i'm thinking ahead & i'm seeing that IF i have to leave there & start at another doctor, then what??--wont they also ask for medical records transfer?? and what if i say "no, i dont want a medical error following me & being repeated here", but they are INSISTENT anyway (maybe even going so far as to say "we cant treat you without them".)?? what the $(HV&& do i do then? you see, i'm trying to get rid of those "confrontations" i dont like, but this one may come up even though i wont be using that awful medicaid card anymore. how would someone deal with this? this is new to me. i only have 1 other experience with this records transfer thing, & thats the one i mentioned before where he INSISTED on it though i had said "the records are useless, they contain errors". it ended up that he used it against me later (as i said, where he said my menopause was really bipolar!)) & i KNEW he'd do that--i knew he'd do that because i figured "anyone who hears the record is no good but wants it anyway is OBVIOUSLY thinking that he doesnt believe for a second that any doctor could commit a medical error"--& i turned out to be right! this is my 2nd doctor switch due to this "medical past being flung into my face" thing. i would rather NOT go through that anymore. so, what do you think on this one too. thanx

  • Hey- you have a bipolar diagnosis, that does not mean that you have to take any treatment a doctor want to give you as far as drugs or be hopeless.You have the rest of your life to figure out how to beat the real cause of that "diagnosis".I think the best it is to act natural about it and say- "I was diagnosed bipolar". You don't have to say what you think about the diagnosis or that you know it is not the case. Learn to keep people away from your business without letting them know. Pretend to be open even if the truth is bipolar is a lame diagnosis.What do you mean with " it is not medical"? Bipolar is "supposed to be medical". You have to play along with the fruitcases. I think your big mistake was to see a Psychiatrist - once you fall in the hands of them you are tagged with some label. They want to break your will or make you feel guilty.I don't think you are bipolar, I just think you are pushing your luck.You better reverse this whole scenario- find someone who can diagnosed you "not bipolar" and finish up with your medicaid benefits and do what you need to do to act as "functional" as needed.There are excellent places to start- Go to the bookstore and visit the health section. Read books on alternative medicine, fatigue, toxic food, the diet by blood type, etc, etc, etc. Also read the book "Never Be Sick Again".Take Care-

  • I just really do not understand your posts. What are you looking for? If it is attention then please go and find it where you are not taking up the time of some really sick people. In all of your posts you do nothing but cry about this big "Misdiagnosis" of being "BIPOLAR" First of all, how in the heck did you get medicaid if you are not Bipolar? You need to go through extensive testing and through many many Dr.s to even get diagnosed. And then it takes months and months for that to all go through. They do not just give medicaid to someone because one Dr said they were Bipolar! And then, a Dr is not allowed to ask why you are on medicaid. There is no reason for them to ask. And you obviously have a mouth and could of said "It's my business". And for your info, not only people that have kids or are mentally challenged get medicaid. And if you are so sure you are NOT Bipolar,( which who cares anyway, it is not a death sentence) and for some reason you fooled a series of at least 6 psychiatrists into believing you were, then why the ***l would you even use the medicaid? That could be taking away from someone who really is sick and got denied for it! Is that fair? If you are not Bipolar then why use it? That is taking advantage of a system that is out there for "real" sick people. You really seem to have a hang-up about these "mental" issues. About people accusing you and so on. I think you need to be evaluated and I know you will take that rude and that is your opinion. But, honey, go back and read your posts. I think you are out looking for all of these "confrontaions". Maybe you need help with an anger issue or one of those situations where youu think everyone in the world is out to get you. Now that I spoke my mind, you can have your ignorant and very deffensive reply as we all are used to it!

  • I agree with the previous poster. I am not sure what the post is about either. I don't think the doctor is being "nosy" asking why you are on medicaid. It would be like asking why a person is on Worker's Compensation. Telling the doctor "don't worry, it's not medical", is rather odd. So if I understand what you are saying, you were diagnosed as biploar, and were granted medicaid for it. You say you are not bipolar, yet are using the medicaid card, thus dishonestly obtaining medicaid and free medical care. There is no value going in to see a doctor "ready to defend yourself". Doctors can pick that attitude up easily, and you might just find that no doctor will be willing to see you. Lose the attitude. Changing doctors all the time doesn't help. You will just look like a doctor shopper, and no one will be willing to see you. Stop thinking everyone is out to get you and be honest with a doctor that you trust. They could actually help you if you let them.

  • dear unregistered: thats funny. sure i go on about a misdiagnosis. this IS wrongdiagnosis.com, isnt it? many people have had this issue, not just ME. the other thing is, i "go on" only just pointing what i've ran into & i'm trying to help others who may have had a problem too--that's all--just trying to help. (i would suspect your offended at "going on about a biploar diagnosis", cause you're a mental health professional & dont believe in medical errors of this nature, or am i wrong?). and, i see by what you say that you've "seen all my posts" & have reached this conclusion--what do you do, act like the KGB & keep "TABS on what people post so you can get the FULL STORY about them??--well, those posts dont say everything, so you dont have enough info to judge--you said "you just get on and rant about it, leave this place to people who are sick!"--who said i wasnt sick??-i just dont have BIPOLAR, but i DO have other illnesses created by those medicines they gave me for it, so i DO QUALIFY with illnesses to be here. maybe you're just "one of the web users" who get on somewhere & try to start a FIGHT by picking on people, like the ones i hear about that "spam" the baords, or who "start fights" just so they can sit back & laugh at the persons reaction to it--is this YOUR case??? to answer your question, heres the story. i got on medicaid because i was depressed about the diagnosis of BIPOLAR & the ONE doctor said "thats bipolar & you qualify for medicaid"-so, there you have it. i didnt need a "bunch of doctors to say it". secondly, i used the medicaid because when they gave me pills for bipolar they made me fat & i got other illnesses which i STILL HAVE & havent been able to work UNTIL i get that medical problem treated (which i'm in process of doing). so, since their misdiagnosis led me into "not being able to work due to being sick", i'm still sick in some fashion so i used the card. i figured "its because of what they did that i'm still sitting here sick & cant work yet", so in my opinion (not the government programs) i still have a right to use the card. if you wish to make an argument that the "governement program of medicaid" would feel i'm not sick enough & dont qualify anymore, then you can make that argument...doesnt matter to me. what makes you ASSUME i'm employable now & not sick anymore from what they did?--that assumption is wrong. now, to explain how i got medicaid- i saw an outpatient doctor & she said "with these symptoms of depression, where you're even so depressed that you cant even take a bus to get to a job if you had one, then you're disabled by it in my opinion, so i feel you qualify for medicaid" & she encouraged to apply & she said she'd fill out the proper forms to get me on medicaid. there you have it. a little more info, i was so incapacitated by the depression, as i told her, that i couldnt even take a bus anywhere, couldnt shop for food (i had to have it delivered), couldnt bathe at all, lost interest in things that i usually liked, when i did go out i had to call an expensive cab (which is so expensive, it limited me to staying home most of the time) because i would "break down emotionally" at the mere thought of taking a bus somewhere (i couldnt handle it at all). you see, it was quite DISABLING, so i qualified as DISABLED by it. anymore reason as why she said i qualified, would have to be addressed to HER because i dont know. so i WAS DISABLED by what i had, it just wasnt BIPOLAR that was responsible for it. it wasnt some FAKE ATTMEPT TO GET FREE MEDICAL. ok? i still wonder if this "unregistered person" isnt one of web users just trying to "pick a fight", who knows, maybe they're the ones responsible for using that bot to flood the "general well-being" area with TONS OF POSTS just to piss people off. hmmm..perhaps i should discontinue replying to attempts at "arguing" cause i could be feeding the persons need for getting a huge laugh of it. dare i also point out, i'm SURE there are some people who get on here who arent "sick" & dont "qualify" about their using this system (in your opinion), cause according to what you said "you have to be sick to be on here"...there could be people that get on to HELP those who are sick & dont actually "have an illness"--but, i think they qualify to be here too. this website ISNT just for those who are "sick", but ALSO for "helping those who are sick"--whats wrong with that? as i said, it turns out that i am still "sick", plus i like trying to "help those who are sick", so i "qualify" to be here for BOTH REASONS. to be clear, i qualified for medicaid NOT because i was diagnosed "bipolar" (plenty of bipolars arent on medicaid), what qualified me was the DISABLING DEPRESSION. it's because they felt the "symptoms" were "disabling me". also, when i said i wasnt bipolar, that statement DOESNT mean i went on "took the medicaid by fraud"..no, i temporarily decided "they may be right" so, you see, i too thought "i'm bipolar". it took me from 2000-2006 to figure out i WASNT bipolar. ok? its NOT that i "took medicaid fraudently & pretended to be bipolar"--i can ASSURE you, i was literally DISABLED by my depression- it was VERY REAL.

  • First of all, couuld you please tell me how you got medicaid? What exactly did you go through to get it? "i got on medicaid because i was depressed about the diagnosis of BIPOLAR & the ONE doctor said "thats bipolar & you qualify for medicaid"-so, there you have it. i didnt need a "bunch of doctors to say it". " I am sorry, I was just wondering how you got in the system so easily. More power to you. I have kidney disease and it took me 1 1/2 years and so many specialists to get on disabilty. Even though I have been so sick. They just move at their own pace. Also, my cousin was diagnosed Bipolar/manic depressive, personality disorder and panick disorder 3 years ago. She had to go from family doctor to therapists, psychiatrists and then the state sent her to see 5 of their "Doctors"! She was doing this all through a lawyer and she got denied the first time and after an appeal (which in that time she also spent time in psych ward) they finally awarded it to her. That system is screwed up. She got her first check in November 2006 after 3 years. Seems that having that "extra" help with the money and insurance coverage would make a difference but when someone is as sick as she is & they put you through all that crap, what the crap is the difference? I guess all states are different. Having the coverage now still doesn't make her any better. Very sad world

  • dear moe: it did take several attempts to get medicaid. in fact, it took 2 years & several tries! not leaving a "defensive reply", but wanting to "correct misinformation": dear unregistered: it DOESNT take "testing" to go through to be diagnosed as bipolar..they just ask "standard questions", its not like a "blood test that can prove it one way or the other". also, you had said "what did you do to make several doctors think you were bipolar?"--1st doctor, i went in saying "i have 2-3 days of insomnia", they said "thats bipolar" (like everyone who has insomnia is mentally ill!). then, they continued with another doctor who had replaced the old one- i came in saying "i now have depression" (the depression i said in prior post about the diagnosis), then they said "that's bipolar". so, it kept going that way. thats ALL i said. the 1st doctor made the diagnosis, then the others who replaced her didnt believe she couldve been wrong, so they continued on as if nothing was wrong. its NOT that i got re-diagnosed over & over & they ALL said "you're bipolar"- they never bothered to re-diagnose me, they only continued as if it were true. my observation: once you get a diagnosis of "mentally ill", its hard to shake it because other mental doctors dont believe that a mistake has been in their clinic! plus, i dont think the "science of mental health" is a REAL science- it only involves "talk, talk, & more talk, & observing the patient while their in the office for 30 minutes". "talk" & a "30 minute visit" ISNT enough for anyone to tell what the person has. sociology is ALSO guilty of this "observing peoples behaviors & feelings" & then giving "opinions" about it...thats NOT a real science, where it involves PHYSICAL TESTS TO PROVE IF SOMEONES ILL. there are no such tests-only "opinions". i recall when i took psychology in college, i read the book which stated that "psychology is the observation of behaviors & feelings & arriving at some opinion about it"--i thought "WHAT?! "opinions of it"?? what if their opnion is wrong? what if it 'just how THEY see things'??"--i was quite SHOCKED that it wasnt more based on "PHYSICAL TESTING", rather than just "talking to people". so, i figure, is it any wonder they can make such mistakes like that? plus, another obsrevation: i've studied the mental health industry & they have a habit of following "fads"-- the latest "fad" is to say "your behavior & feelings & thoughts are some ILLNESS & you just cant help yourself!"-- they have taken out the role of "having a personal choice in the matter". THIS is how that thing started where they classified drug addcits as having a "mental illness that causes them to continue to take drugs". this is bologna-- if someone who takes drugs, for example, were REALLY mentally ill, then there WOULDNT be story after story of people who CHOSE to overcome their addiction- if the "illness" makes you do it, then CANT simply *CHOSE* to stop. a REAL mentally ill person CANT *chose to stop the behavior* in question--so, i think that "fad" is bologna. i bring this "fad" up because i think that IT is whats to blame for their telling me that "BIPOLAR makes you depressed, not a *choice* to feel that way". also, of course, there ARE times when a person thinks & feels as they do because it's just a "natural reaction" to feel that way when you've gone through something ( like i did)-- it's still no "illness" causing it. however, just to clarify, i dont mean to imply that i dont believe people cant get mentally ill. the brain can break like the body can. dear unregistered: no, i'm not being "defensive & leaving an arumentative reply as i usually do"...actually, besides today, i've only replied to someone about this ONCE about a week ago. this hardly indicates some "habit i usually do". also, i'm only "correcting misinformation", not "being defensive"... your definition of "being defensive" is off. ok?

  • to the one who left a long reply that ended with that statement "go on, leave a argumentative & defensive reply, as you usually do, we've all seen it": is it just me, or you are the SAME one who i replied to a week ago where that person also said "you seem to have an anger issue about mental things"?? the pattern you're leaving indicates to me that you ARE the same person. from what i've seen today & a week ago, you say that my posting info-in-general about my situation & posts on trying to help people is some kind of "defensive, sick, hang-up"--then i guess EVERYONE HERE has the SAME hangup when they get a medical error, they post the story as i did, they leave info to help others as i have. "everyones got an anger issue" then, hmmm..i dont by it. on this "anger issue" thing, its not some "hang-up that needs treatment"...people can sometimes feel angry when things have occurred, or like in my case, i'm STILL GOING THROUGH BAD MEDICAL ISSUES due to their negligence-so, sometimes i'm angry when i think about it. its just a natural human response, not a "hang-up". obviously, you've never been the victim of any medical error that backfired, or you'd have some anger too. dont preach unless you've been there. so, you dont know everything about me from all my posts-- i still have a big backfire from their negligence..its much like being raped & then it keeps going on--under this circumstance, anyone would feel anger sometimes..its not a "mental problem that needs help", just a natural reaction to a bad situation. you know, someone having negative emotions isnt always SOME MENTAL CONDITION to blame--i already covered that subject in my prior post. so, what i'll do then, is when i see your posts like this, i'll NOT REPLY anymore. i was only trying to be polite by correcting misinformation. but you want to see it as "defensive replying", so i see no point in continuing in the future by replying to someone who appears to think people have "anger issues & hang-ups" when they dont. :eek: so, no more..

  • these posts dont leave much room to reply, so here it goes another one: you said "in all your posts you go on about being misdiagnosed bipolar"...what does this statement say??--that you spend your time "keeping tabs on me, my story, & all my posts here". are you demented, that you're essentially wasting time doing something that looks like "stalking" me?! that's like "stalking" someone, where you "follow them, what they do, & watching them".talk about someone having an "issue"--whats' that? "following me" like that...i use some boards nearly daily, and i dont go around "following peoples posts" that way! thats weird! i can just picture you sitting there & "writing down word-for-word every post" i make so you wont forget & that way you can formulate an opinion on my behavior here!--haha--thats funny! so, i hate to tell you but YOU are the one with the "issue that needs treatment" because that's CRACKED to "keep tabs on a user" like this. get a REAL life & find something more to do that actually contributes to society. plus the fact that you only pick on MY posts. whats that?? you have some "issue" that you find it necessary to "keep tabs on what i'm doing here". so, stalking me, hmm.. i guess i shouldnt be surprised. i once had a website owner use my email to harass me because i said their website needed fixing & she got mad that i said "you made an error". all i can say is...boy, that's the web for ya, weirdos everywhere. have fun then! hope you *smile* everytime you get on to see "what's dudbubbin up to today?" weird. you dont see ME getting on here "keeping tabs" on what the user "miserablemoe" is doing. what a weird thing to do! it's TRUE--who the @#RG(*() gets on & keeps "tabs" on what someone is doing?! it would NEVER even cross MY mind! hahahaha...perhaps i should post more "interesting" things just to keep you entertained & to keep you from wasting your time, after all, you are spending so much time that you "know all my posts here"!!! WEIRD!! JUST WEIRD!!! :confused: what the............................... p.s. still laughing..lol..

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • unregistered: you need to take ativan, 50mg. QID, for your anxiety over hearing about medical errors & the fact that you like to fight people. :cool: p.s. i wasnt going to reply to you "unregistered", but i forgot one, so i'll add this: you said "how did you manage to fool a series of 6 doctors into thinking you were bipolar?".........why do you think this??..."a series of 6"?? it only took me one...just one & she helped me to get the medicaid. after that, not that you'd know my case, i continued in the outpatient clinic to get my pills for it--they went through doctors like toilet paper & i got one doctor replacing another one...no one but the first diagnosed me as bipolar, so i DIDNT fool 6 doctors into it (the other doctors who replaced one after the other werent "diagnosing me as bipolar too", they simply didnt question the first diagnosis & then went from there). plus, i didnt fool anyone. your ignorant--do you really think me, or anyone, would FAKE a mental diagnosis just to get that "free medicaid benefit" (as if thats some LUXURY like having a million dollars!!) when to get it you have to take pills that produce a HORRIBLE HOST OF BAD SIDE-EFFECTS THAT BACKFIRE ON YOU??!!--hardly "worth free medicaid" to end a medical-cripple unable to work cause of those pills. so, you're DEAD WRONG-- i think if someone started off FAKING IT for "free medicaid", they'd STOP real quick once those side-effects hit!! NO ONE IS THAT RETARDED. so, let go of your odd assumptions. you're speaking from ignorance.

  • obviously, you've never been the victim of any medical error that backfired, or you'd have some anger too. dont preach unless you've been there. so, no more..Wow, You have blown everything way out of proportion. First, i have not read all of your posts. I am not a stalker and am not a sicko. I am simply very ill myself and always looking for help. I had been in the "misdiagnosed" forum for a reason. If you check, not too many people post about misdiagnosed on the Bipolar issue. So that led me to read your posts. Now does that make sense to you? I am not here to fight you and I do NOT stalk people. And to your quote above, All I have to say is don't you assume anything about me. I have been labeled "BIPOLAR" for years and years. But, it also took them YEARS to diagnose me. And yes, I went through all kinds of testing and NO I am not saying they were blood tests. I took psychological testing. I went through at least 7 psychiatrist that the state made me see before I could get the disability. But when I got sick, and they were so quick to render their diagnosis, they believed I could no longer hold my job. Which was a $40,000. a year job and I was the 2cnd income in the house. I quit my job thinking I was going to get help like they said. BUT, it took years!!!! I lost everything. A house that I loved, a 1 year old car, things I had worked har to get. Then I went bankrupt, which with my colege education, I never would of expected. And that is even with my husbands well paying job.So you see, I DO know what all this crap is about.!!! To sit here and read your post and you say that one doctor names you Bipolar (which you do not think you are) and then that dr gets you help on medicaid, I'm sorry BUT that just *****s me off. I never said you weren't sick either. But if you go back and read 2 of your post, you go on and on about how angry you are that this one dr diagnosed you Bipolar and you are so angry because of that. HOWEVER, you seemed to have reaped the benefits of it quickly. I guess wiht all I have been through, I did nnot believe that it was that simple. If your state is that lenient and they trust 1 DR's opinion then more power to you.And do you really think that those of us that have been living "BIPOLAR" really appreciate you saying "those bipolars" what the heck is that? I am a person too. I just have a condition. You just seem to be so against us "bipolars" that anyone in my place would consider you being very discrimitive and rude.You could NEVER imagine the sexual, mental and physical abuse. The addictions and deaths that I have endured to get to the point I am at today. So it is possible to become "BIPLOAR" I stated " how did you fool those Doctors" only because for years I spent time trying to PROVE I was Bipolar!! You obviously had a plain and simple "she's bipolar, give her medicaid" diagnosis and I went through ***l believing I was bipolar and had to prove it.You are reading way too much into my reply. i will stay away from your post in the future now realizing that you are of no help to me. I yes will sit here, unemployed taking 12 medications a day and I already do take xanax,thank you. I will cruise these boards looking for some serious help. I guess I will be the one considered ignorant here as I have been through entirely too much for one human to withstand and I somehow down play your "illness" So, in the future, I will not look to you for help. I will not comment on anything you have to say as you really get way out of control when someone simply replies their opinion to you. Don't go giving yourself that much credit. You are really not as important as you think.. Much luck to you in the years to come

  • http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_11.gif I'm terribly sorry that you feel this way. The reson being is that i keep having these letters in my mail box that i really don't understand. Maybe i should explain, i myself suffer from a liver disease that has nothing to do with your case and so i therefore believe you have me confussed with somebody else. Thank You and good luck with your problem.
