I've been doing a lot better, this past year, despite being in a crash right now. And getting better feels like a giant 'F you' to the health care system . I feel like I did it DESPITE them. Not everyone; some practitioners are awesome, in that they do not actively stand in my way. That is the standard. But mostly, for my whole adult life, health care practitioners have been in the role of actively trying to prevent me from getting the care I needed -- insisting on wrong diagnoses that were contradicted by testing, refusing to authorise ordinary treatments, mobility aids, physical therapy, etc. And F you, I did it anyway. Anybody else feel this way?
