I have spoken to my CPN today to ask for a second opinion. She says that my normal psychiatrist will do the second opinion, but not to hold out too much hope as he will just look at my previous notes and admissions. I pointed out that I have copies of my medical records and they say that not everything that is written about me is true. She did not know what to say to that.
She is the one who told me not to press charges against my family, and has not been supportive at all. I am going to wait for the court case to go through and then get a second opinion from a specialist from the trauma clinic. He has already informed me that it is very unlikely that I do not have Complex PTSD. He charges £60.00 per hour.
I will keep you informed as to how I get on.
Best Wishes and a Happy New Year.
