Ill, But Invisible: When Doctors Are No Longer Interested

Ill, But Invisible: When Doctors Are No Longer Interested

Miss Sarah Marie GrayePadlet

I live with idiopathic emphysema. When I was first diagnosed, my life was about surgeries and hospital visits. But the medical profession lost interest in me once my health had been stabilised (even though my condition was still deteriorating) because they could no longer help me. They don’t seem to understand the value of being seen.

My three-minute video would be an overview of the above and then ponder as to whether the mental health of chronically ill people would be significantly improved if they still had access to being heard by the medical profession.
