I am currently in the process of being diagnosed, and treated, for psychosis. It has been this way since 2007 when I had a near fatal accident. A person who is foreign to my medical treatment approached my doctor at this time and suggested I was having an episode, just because we had an argument.
I personally have real issues with taking "heavy" amounts of medication when all the facts and evidence suggests it’s "punitive psychiatry". My wife and I have a real problem with the diagnosis as well, because we know that I don’t have hallucinations or delusions. If you spend over 70% of your life with someone and they don’t see these symptoms, then there is a problem.
Furthermore, rather then sleeping too much, it appears that the problem to begin with was "No Sleep." But if the goal of the diagnosis is to discredit someone, then you’ve succeeded.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to deal with doctors or people who don’t listen, please feel free to write.

Who has the right to interfear with your medical treatment???
