Thank you Sherry. When my therapist so matter of fact called what I have been through medically in the past “medical rape”. It took a while, but I finally owned it as indeed true rather than negated and putting myself down still as though it was me and not them. It was weight lifted. and grounded in my feet when I stood up for myself. I did not understand or know how to respond to such. The doctor had hooked into the abuse and mentality and so over-medicated me that I was not able to think for myself. I was isolated with this doctor and I was isolated still in an abusive relationship; they mutually helped each other keep me where they wanted me. As the tip of the iceberg.
My heart is with you.
much love, C
