The Trauma of Diagnosis


Betty talks about the significant negative impacts and trauma of a diagnosis in her life:

“I just remember spending a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms and being more doors and being shuffled around to meet me. I didn’t do any counselling. That’s always what I’ve done. This is my whole thing, why I’ve been depressed lately. My whole thing in my life I just take it I suppose and go ok “everything’s ok” you know and “I can deal with this.” That’s what I did when I found out. Yeah “I can deal with this. It’ll be all fine.” Yeah, so now, that’s why my brain is a little bit broken I suppose because everything is kind of just, you know, me dealing with everything and being positive and accepting it is coming to a head. Does that make sense?”
