So when I had my first psychotic episode, my parents didn't know what to do and sent me to the ER. A social worker came in and told me that she believed I was faking everything, I didn't have a problem, and I just wanted attention. Then she says that she still has to keep me because I've reported being suicidal and homicidal but that "I've never seen a psychiatric patient say the things you do". All while I was horribly delusional, hallucinating, depressed, not eating, not making eye contact. That's the FIRST ever mental health professional I've ever talked to and that really stuck with me and I didn't trust anyone else for a long time.
Later, I was put on a medication when I was IP, and it made me REALLY hungry and it also could cause heart problems, so I went to the cardiologist and I have Prolonged QTC so I had to come back in a few months. Well, I'd been fairly thin because I hadn' t been eating and I gained about 20 pounds after taking the medication for a while when I next saw her (the cardiologist). She tells me I gained a lot of weight, not knowing I have a history of an eating disorder, specifically atypical anorexia. I explain to her that I was thinner in the past because I'd been starving myself and she goes, "Well, it's time to go back to that."
Like, no. I know she's not a mental health professional, but you don't tell a recovering eating disorder sufferer that it's time to go back to starving themselves to lose a few pounds (I wasn't even technically overweight, I weighed around 130 some.)
