Why don't our "professionals" know their job properly?
Hi folks, Fm here. A few years ago I was arrested by the police and put under a 136 order on the grounds that I must've been "mentally ill" simply because I had the nerve to complain to another passenger who brought a maniacal ranting, whining ,howling dog on the bus so the driver panicked and parked up the bus and called the police and they took me to see a so-called "approved professional" at a hospital a few miles away and guess what, he had never heard of misophonia, well he should have! Surely someone who claims to be a mental health professional should be trained in the details of many different disorders as possible, not just "mainstream" ones. Since then I've also been to see another specialist who deals with autism spectrum disorders and believe it or not even he had never heard of misophonia either! So what is wrong with our professionals? Why aren't they properly trained? It seems to me that their training courses are just not adequate. I think it's about time that misophonia and severe heat intolerance were properly and officially recognised as disabilities then there wouldn't be all these gross misunderstandings and there wouldn't be so many stupid transparent public structures which heat up like a furnace inside in the summer sun which then EXcludes anyone like me which is a serious breach of section 20 of the so-called "equality" act. Yet those responsible for such structures still insist that they're "fully disability compliant" and fully "accessible to everyone" etc. which is simply not true and that infuriates me. And no-one is going to put another 136 order on me as I am NOT "mentally ill" at all. If they try they'll get told, and I'm well used to dealing with coppers who try and twist things around and pin the blame on me when some other person started it, they never want to know about the one who started it, oh no. But whenever I need the police's help they never want to know and that has gone on for decades and it's about time it changed. Fm.
