I wish hospital did more then just life threatening stuff like actually looked into things they have all the people and all the machines and knowledge to figure out almost all medical conditions and the ability to prescribe any medication. but unless your dying then and there they don't care. they say go see a docter well I have and I still have the same symptoms and same problems 5 years later and no answers and it's just getting worse and worse and I will be telling them if they don't do anything soon then I will be in there for attempted sui$ide cause I'm done being In pain and anxiety and worried

      It’s not that they don’t care it’s that it’s unreasonable to expect them to manage so many sick people they keep it to life and death yet they’re still over run with not enough beds and underpaid staff, it’s not nice but it’s not their fault they do the best they can, being sick is horrible but you just have to do a lot of work and waiting and that means suffering but it’s how it is it’s why people with chronic illness need more awareness and charities and support, because it’s awful living in pain every day and people don’t understand that, I’m incredibly chronically ill with every aspect you can imagine of my body more than just heart, and so far I’ve had absolutely no pain relief and it’s been 3 years, but I appreciate what the doctors are doing for me running tests and diagnosing me and starting me on a treatment plan to save my life, because it wasn’t that long ago that being diagnosed with my condition was a death sentence, I’m 19 I was forced to drop out of school I can’t work I have no money and no friends I’m in bed all day every day and regularly throw up from the pain I’m in I’ve been there with wanting suicide and wishing death on myself but I got through it and now I’m starting to get through this, I’d recommend therapy to deal with it my mums paying out £65 a week for my therapy sessions but it’s saved my life so worth it, you can get free therapy too if you wait long enough, make appointments with your doctors, attend them, request referrals and tests and then wait and reach out to your family and friends for support during this as that’s all you can do but it does make a big difference, to go through chronic illness is to walk through hell and it’s years of waiting and suffering every day if you’re lucky, for me it’s my whole life as my condition is incurable and limited treatment, it does change your life completely you have to grieve not being able to do things that normal people do but that’s what it is to be disabled that doesn’t make our lives less valuable that it’s not worth living, it just takes a lot of strength which when you don’t have it you need to find it in those around you instead and then you will come out maybe not better but with the ability to cope and enjoy aspects of life, it’s just for living and sometimes it can’t go as planned but it’s still worth living, for me I’ve had no childhood and may never be able to have children or work or any kind of life really my quality of life is incredibly poor enough to be considered for medically assisted dying but I want to keep trying to find things to live for anyway and you need to do the same, don’t give up seeking help but don’t hate those who can’t help you either it does suck and you can be upset about it, depressed, grief stricken but you can find a way through it as well we all do, I’ve lost too many people close to me to suicide it isn’t a solution, and mental hospitals aren’t very helpful places either they can cause more issues, I wish you luck with your health journey

      unfortunately hospitals just don't have the physical space to act as an all-in-one deal on specialists, especially not for chronic illnesses. they do care about your health and well-being, that's why they always provide information for getting help with suicidal ideation and for getting a primary care doctor if you don't have one. you can even see the specialists at the hospital for an outpatient visit, but there's nowhere near enough room for inpatient admittance. don't tell them you're gonna commit suicide unless you want to be put on a psychiatric hold, which will not help anyone at all, but especially not you. that's a quick way to get ALL your symptoms dismissed as anxiety

        @wise yeah but hospitals here don't do anything they say your not dying and send you home there's no outpatient there's no Here's a good docter there's no are you ok it's your not dying go home and it sucks

          @lcplbubles there is outpatient, you get a referral from a primary care physician. you can look up sliding scale PCPs in your area if money is an issue. it is not the ER's job to treat chronic illness, they're not equipped for that. I see lots of specialists at a hospital near me, but I had to get referrals. I know it feels hopeless, but it does get easier to manage if you persist until you find the right doctor for you
