I personally think that the problem isn't how health care gets paid for. In any system where doctors make money off sick people we're going to get screwed.
The problem is that doctors don't really care about helping patients they care about getting paid. They will off ten recommend treatments that are not really nessicary when safer options are avalible because they cost more and can charge more in the future from the side effects you get later on.
Think about it, if they actually cured anything they'd be eliminating the need for their jobs, no more repeat buisness, no more customers, no more doctors. Their job is to make sure people need them so they can keep getting paid. And they have the highest paying jobs in the country.
When our doctors are motivated by greed rather than helping people no matter how we pay for health care we get screwed. What we really need is a nonprofit system where all the money they make goes into cures so we can eventually eliminate the need to even have doctors. They shouldn't be able to profit from other people suffering.
"First if anyone has a mental illness they are okay talking about, your story about your life and what it's like living with a mental illness would be great."
Hi, I have multiple personality disorder. What it's like living with that? Well that's kind of a broad open ended question, I'm not even sure where to start. You could try asking me some more specific questions than what's my life like. :P
"I would also like to know how you are treated by others who are aware of your mental illness and what you want to change about your treatment."
Well actually others who are aware of it seem to just ignore it and pretend there's nothing wrong with me, I guess because they don't know how to deal with it. Others have intentionally triggered alters to come out even though it annoys the hell out of me. There isn't really a middle ground, they're either a little too into or ignore it completely.
I wouldn't really change anything about my treatment. I was in therapy for a while when I was dealing with one particularly dangerous personality. The others are mostly just annoying but otherwise I don't mind them. But once I had the Simon Rider problem taken care of and he was no longer in my head I stopped going to therapy. I'd go back if I ever relapsed but it's been like ten years now and I haven't had any other threats pop up.
"I also want to know the ideal world you could live in with your mental illness."
Well if we lived in my ideal world I wouldn't have this problem to begin with. Technically I wouldn't even exist cause I myself am an alternate personality. The real one, he's been through so much pain in life that he couldn't live in this world. He created us to protect him from this world and to make sure no one else ends up like him.
