Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Psychiatrists like the rest of us are human and definitely capable of making mistakes. I wouldn't have thought that Dyslexia & Dyspraxia would be mistaken for BPD as they are very different things, however gross diagnostic mistakes sometimes occur. It may be that he believes BPD fits in addition to Dyslexia & Dyspraxia as you can have all these diagnoses simultaneously.
You should definitely seek a second opinion if you are concerned abut any diagnosis you ever receive regardless of it being Psychiatric or medical. In my experience patients often have good insight into whether a diagnosis fits and so if your gut feeling is that this is wrong then please do seek another assessment. The Psychiatrist should happily arrange this for you but if you would find it too uncomfortable to approach this person again then have your GP arrange one for you. ALternatively, you could contact NHS Choices fr assistance with getting a new assessment organized.
I will pause here and wait for any response you might have to what I have written so far.
He went along with another psychiatrist who had never seen my medical notes and was employed by my employers who sacked me for being unsustainable after I hit my head and ended up with post concussion syndrome. This expert is for legal purpouses only and I see a Neuro-psychiatrist who has assurde me he does not believe I suffer from BPD. The expert put me down as F60.3 in ICD10, F60.4 in ICd.10 and F60.0 in ICD10. he ignored my ex-partner who came with me, paperwork and memory stick with my evidence in it along with comments such 'as we need to line mangae this person out of this organisation.' and evidence from two collegues that I was bullied and ostracised at work? Can I still go to the NHS.
Thank you very much
