    @thespiceman I'm fine now thanks,now I've done that horrible form.enclosed GPS letter,plus CARL58 history of past events which him made ill etc, I've even written observations & my witness accounts over last few weeks,how this has caused him so much distress, because he's opened up the flashbacks have come,back with a vengeance,there lasting near on an hr,it's what's said throughout how he behaves while this happens,it's alarming to me. I've never seen them so bad.they mentally exhaust him,if he trys closing his eyes,he's having nightmares about it to, it's not good he's that little boy reliving the past,it's alright for psychiatrist to say it runs to deep,give extra Diaz to calm him down, what's the annoying part was he'll have this now to the day he dies,I could have honestly have punched,the psychiatrist myself,no offer extra help reffered back to GP, they won't admit they've left it to long,just dose him up with meds try paper over the cracks.sorry it makes my blood boil take care jen

    Hello @CARL58 Good morning Jen thank you for contacting me.

    I am absolutely stunned by this why refer him back to GP. Not good to hear some of these so called psychiatrists have no idea.

    I know had this myself. So asked the following charity to intervene.

    RETHINK  offer an advocate service to those patients who have no voice. Who have mental health issues.

    In my opinion too many like this.

    Please have a look on the website.  RETHINK. See if that might help you and Carl.

    I continue to be here just let me know. Any thing else I can be doing or helping with.

    Hope you take care and are doing OK.

    Keep in touch.

    Always in prayers.
