Why It Took Me So Long To Get Proper Care

June 25, 2020

I was a young, impressionable 18 years old who was introduced to drinking, and of my own free will I became an alcoholic in a few short months. Someone with diabetes, low blood platelets, and hypothyroidism should not be drinking but the hypothyroid was not treated properly until I got stable in 2003. Yes, my family did interfere, and somehow often sabotaged my attempts to get a psychiatrist. I wound up going to one who was not a schizoaffective believe. Then I was stuck seeing internists for most of my college career, studying creative writing and little else. I was bound to go to school, even when I managed to live in the City for a while. Yes, I was kept in the dark about a lot of my health problems, and I didn’t know how to tackle the 22q in general until this year, since I found out I have autoimmune thrombocytopenia, which could turn serious, even if I don’t “look,” sick.
