i have a VA psych who is gaslighting me, seriously.
over a year ago a VA shrink granted my request for outside VA pysch services.
he did that when i had made appt with him that lasted 5 minutes. he was new. he said: i'm just the pill pusher.
i knew that. i had simply setup the appt because he was new and thought he might "just give me" the outside authorization, he did!
i was shocked. that was ovef a year ago; i saw him for 5 minutes, never saw him again (not before).
--it took so long to actually receive the paperwork that by the time i did, i never used it.
during that time i sent him a message asking about the delay, he sent me a copy of the request he had sent a month earlier.
i thanked him and also asked him about some medication (Klonopin). he wrote back: "All Vets ate being weened off narcotics. So, I can't give you that. Perhaps you will get it on the outside."
Now, i knew that that "all vets...all narcotics& thing was BS. i politely asked if would send the policy or a place i could read that order.
He wrote back: FDA.
Again, i sought citation.
While he wasn't forthcomng he made other comments, like: "Be proactive n your healthcare." and other supposed tidbits of wisdom for me.
So i took the opportunity, since he was the beand new to VA shrink, lucky to have one at all in tiny hidden VA clinic, ... to reply with my history, abput 2 pages worth. And telling him, essentially: Dude, you're telling the WRONG guy! You don't know me! ...kinda thing.
He felt threatened and wrote back: "you have been reported to the appropriate authorities there will be consequences."
I about freaked out!!! Are the cops coming!??? almost had a heart attack.Cancelked all my upcoming appts.
I gathered all the messages we had and reported him to overseeing VA Hospital Director. I did so anymously.
The director said this was very wrong. And once I finally identified myself I heard no more, and, a few weeks later I got a warning letter.
Ok. Anyway, that was then. over a year ago, and after that brief meeting that resulted in that authorization that i never used.
6 weeks ago i sent that same psych a message, requestiing another authorization and listed the name and info of a Dr i had recently already been seeing. ...he VA psych wrote back: Done.
I figured since i made that compliant he might do smething like that, ir not respond at all. less do what he SHOULD and say to come in for an appt first.
i waited. it came, the dr i have got it, etc, YAY. i received my copy the next day.
i decided to try to read it... they send tiny faded print. ALWAYS. (helps to NOT pay the provider when they don't follow instructions.)
it has an ICD-10 code at the top and done in the body of the letter it says in narrative what the code is: F14.94 cocaine dependency; cocaine induced Mood-Disorder.
next day, last friday, i called the office that sent me the authorization. I asked them to look up the one he gave me before and tell me the code:.F31.0 Biplar Disorder. which indeed my VA dx.
this MF is gaslighting me. don't you think you might need some UA's or something before CHANGE without seeing the patient, without any way to know if someone is an ACTIVE COCAINE ADDICT???!!!!!!!
MF!!! $500 shoes, a porsche, a MIND business down the street -- i'm just the pill pusher -- collecting probably $200,000 a year from VA.
i need a lawyer.
