I have spent the morning in tears, my oldest son was diagnosed with autism about 8-10 years ago. So went to find out why his file was closed by the shrink, the bleeeeeeeeep discharged him said he was no longer autistic, the gp argued with me adults don't have ADHD or need meds so she's stoping them as he can't get them unless under the psychology department. I broke down in town centre, Craig Connors support worker picked him up told him what gp said, hes baffled at how they can say this. WITHOUT even seeing him. Ive called his old school to get the letters out of the archives, they can't believe what this man has done, their making copies of everything stating Connor has autism from more than one professional. I have been in a mess cause of this, she even argued I'm the only adult on ADHD meds, said this to my Dr today, he replied I can assure you there are plenty on meds its NOT age related. Managed to move him to my new Dr with us hubby noticed list was only closed to new patients coming into town. So will get an appointment for Friday telling them what's happened. Just can't believe they kicked the world out from under him never mind falling through the cracks.
