Get a Physical First, Then Step into the Psychiatrists Office
Posted Oct 30 2008 3:24pm
As a person who was wrongly diagnosed with a different illness 5 years before I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, I have a lot of concerns about our health care system.
I think it is, first and foremost, always necessary to rule out any physical illness or condition before being diagnosed with an abstract mental illness.
Don't take me wrong, here!!! I do not mean to imply that mental illness should not receive the same parity as physical disease. Not at all!!
But, many of the same symptoms are shared by those who have physical illnesses and mental illnesses.
are easily discerned - but there are many other types of conditions that are not.
