Question: I had a meeting with my counsellor a few weeks ago and she was quite concerned that I was expressing my aggression/anger/frustration feelings/emotions in destructive/impulsive behaviours. She asked if I was taking all the medication when I should be. I said I was. She then stressed that she thought it was really important for me to get to the doctors and get my mental health medication reviewed quite urgently. I have had the surgery appoint in which I asked for a review letter to be done and sent over to the mental health team. However, I am aware that I have been under the team for various mental health reasons over the cause of the past 10 years. Subsequently about 3/4 times now I have been to them for an assessment but they won't take me any further than that within the team, because they say there is nothing else they can do that they haven't already done. Since going to the surgery for the referral I have heard nothing from the team. I am starting to wonder if I have been forgotten or if them not contacting me is their way of telling me they are not prepared to see me even for an assessment this time. What should I do?

Brief Answer:
ask for the reason of not assessing you.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.

I can understand your concerns.

I have read your query thoroughly and gone through your discussions with other doctors here as well.

You have been diagnosed with multiple personality disorder.
I guess you must be having sessions with your counselor regarding that.

Well, mood swings are the part of personality disorders. They may be in the form of aggression, sadness, irritability, happiness etc.

Unfortunately, there is no definitive drug treatment for personality disorders.
Hard to change what has become a part of one's personality.. Isn't it?
And thus, doctor tend to escape from or avoid assessing such patients after a particular period of time.

However, on ethical grounds, the mental health team should consider your request of assessment. The drug treatment be reviewed and changed if needed.
They must cite the reason of not assessing you and you can ask for this.
Counselling sessions should be absolute part of your treatment.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask further.
Thanks.

Hello, i am a 24 year old male and over the last year i have had problems with my heart over being born with a hole in my heart but they tested me a few months ago and they said no OP needed and that i was alright, but i have been having a problem with my lungs, i think. If i do too much or try running for even ten minutes i would get out of breath very fast and my words would stammer. I also have multiple personality disorder but i do not think that would be even a little bit why i am like this.

my best friend has adult ADHD. he was diagnosed when he was 15. he is currently not on medication. His mother suffers from bipolar disorder. I believe he is also suffering from multiple personality disorder, because not only does he forget memories of events that have occurred, but he also acts differently around me sometimes, and then has no memory of those different actions. he genuinely has no memory of when he changes into this flirtatious funny outgoing playful guy. this change in personality has always occurred at night. then the next day, i ask him about his actions, and he has no idea what i am talking about. My question is: does adult ADHD have any connection to multiple personality disorder? or are these two separate conditions?

I m going to make this short and understandable, hopefully... Basically I can hear voices but not see anyone. I guess I would kinda qualify my other personality as a part of it, her name is Mandy, and she won t leave me alone. I don t know what to do and it s honestly scaring me. Hopefully this was easy to understand...
