My answer to What is the most embarassing thing that happened to you at the doctors?

Answer by Desmond Last:

I was suffering from a loss of feeling in my left hand and pains to my eyes, heart and head. At times the pain was very severe.

I had put up with it for some time but eventually decided to visit my local doctor. I explained the pain to him. He asked some questions about my past and I casually mentioned some of the events of my past and that I was a writer who had new ideas for a better World.

He did not seem very concerned with my pain or my very brief description of my writing and the past events of my life.

Therefore I was shocked when I received a letter stating he had referred me for a mental health assessment. I complained and he apologised for not telling me he was making the referral but said I still needed a mental health review.

I attended a meeting with him and two mental health advocates. He said and I quote ‘ that my writing to improve the world was one of his main concerns’ and the fact that I said that the illegal eviction from my home in Sydney by the ANZ was of concern to me.

I was in the embarrassing position of having to justify writing to improve the World.

He did not pursue his referral.

Where anywhere is it considered to be a mental health issue if you write to improve the World? On Quora I use my views and ideas to answer question – as we all do and many people upvote my answers.

One day I will question him in a Court of Law. The U.K is a democracy and workable new ideas for improving the World should never be rejected.
