Even worse, there are doctors who believe that if you cannot walk, it is BECAUSE you're depressed. Sadly, I'm not kidding. My friend who has a severe progressive neurological illness and is in a wheelchair as a result has been told by doctors, including neurologists, numerous times that the problem is in her attitude, that she could very well walk if she wanted to, and if she just goes to therapy she can walk again.

I don't think it's any wonder that she has developed PTSD caused by abusive doctors. The most recent ones actually stalked her via the phone and blackmailed her, calling her when she had told them not to call, and pushing for therapy and psychiatric meds, saying she won't get any other treatment (e.g. pain meds) unless she agrees to psychiatric treatment she is far too ill to undergo.

Like the time I called a nursing home to find out where I could park when I visited. The person I spoke to absolutely could not comprehend that there might be a non-resident loose in the world who as already disabled. All she had on offer were parking spots for residents, which I am not.
