Well it seems the health fund can do what they like. I've just spent hours being seen by another pdoc who says deep depression (she wanted to schedule me as she was so worried, but I wouldn't let her, it was at one of the worse public psych hospitals).
The health fund will not believe the doc or the pdocs report that my depression is new, they're using some law they have (that they don't disclose it in the brochure when you sign up) and have suddenly decided that my anxiety from months ago and this new deep clinical depression are one and the same.
No it's not a doctor or even a nurse that made the decision just someone they have that reads their manual and has decided that there's only one mental health problem, not seperate ones.
So it's not Yay.... they've refused to pay my hospital stay as they believe I've had this deep depression for over 6 months
instead it's back to trying not to lose it or fall into a deeper pit. I thought I'd finally got help, legally I should have help but these big companies are a law upon themselves.
I'm screaming at everyone, including the kids, I can't sleep or eat and I feel worse every minute, but at least the anxiety has gone, not that the health fund believes it.
I really don't know how I'm going to cope.... my mother is no support nor are the inlaws and hubby doesn't think it's a big deal. Thinking I was going to this good hospital is the only thing that has held me together over the last 3 days.
