Diagnosis Codes to ponder...

Thursday, January 09, 2014

I have had many long conversations with one of my good friends this week and this little gem just came out of my mouth and I knew I needed to share it with everyone:

"Am I really this crazy or do I chose to let myself me defined by the diagnosis codes to which I have been assigned?"

I'm just going to leave that with you one to ponder. How would you answer this question if you feel it applies to you? Those of you who know me, how do you think I answered my own question?

    And to add...I do not recommend going off your medications. Bad things can happen...like ending up in the community hospital on 72 hour hold or committed to the state hospital for 3 months or longer. And just a hint..they are not free just because the state owns them.

    I think it can be a self fulfilling prophecy, if you let it. I often struggle with knowing a little too much about the way the diagnosis code is given. And you must understand...two separate doctors or professionals can give you a different code on the same day. Very subjective this diagnosis coding although professionals in the field will tell you they are more objective than the patient. Then you have to look at all the different types of treatment. Sometimes certain doctor's like certain medications and use them often. Depends on their pharmacy representative is selling them.

    Lots to think about!!
    Love ya,


    emoticon And don't forget all the side effects of the medications we are given. (Sorry just had to put that in here. Some are medications that are used for off label uses. I could go on...but do I need to?)

    I know I rely a lot on my diagnosis when things go bad. When things are good, I don't even notice the bad feelings. I hope to talk to you on Skype soon!
