I wrote this in 1990, before going to a medical appointment. A year later I discovered that I had been “a borderline psychotic” in the health services for many years, and that everything I said about how I functioned confirmed that I had lost touch with reality.
During the confusing years before I found out about the diagnosis, I thought that I had the same rights in the health care system as a lawbreaker has in the the judicial system:
- A right to know what I am suspected of.
- A right to accusations that are so precise that they can be disproved.
- A right to self-defense.
- A right to take responsibility for my own actions.
