      I got sick of bad service from the NHS and went to my gp and demanded that she help me get a private appointment with a psychiatrist to get a OCD evaluation. I then demanded that I get letter for work stating I have OCD. I also asked her to write a letter to my uni. I finally feel satisfied but now really worry that I was too harsh. Can I justify my actions in getting help for OCD?

          We have the right to hope for good treatment on the NHS.

          The N.I.C.E. regulations back this up.

          When we aren’t knowing for sure what is happening to us… Sometimes we do have to shout, and loudly…
