My life has been in shambles ever since because of what the hospital did. Medical abuse is real. I have lost so many friendships. People, well-meaning or not, who refuse to believe that this is happened to me. However, it did.
I’m not sure what to do. Maybe write to the CEO and tell this person what my life has been like since I left, the impact it all has had, and describe just what happened and why it all was wrong, and say this should never, ever happen to another patient in their care.
Why is the victim so often blamed? Why are the perps, who are often doctors, wealthy people in high places, CEOs, health care providers, therapists even, psychiatrists of course, so often glorified as saviors?
These cruel people are not saviors, but abusers.
We need to put a stop to abuse. Please stop abuse. Stop it from happening to other people. And please, if you have abused, at least APOLOGIZE. You’ll most likely feel better. Stop abusing and you’ll be a better person.
