Is it possible to take a leave? I know it is a pain but you should be taking action against this idiot.

The only way out is through. And it's a slog, but like everybody is saying, there is an end with these sorts of things. You just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Have you considered trying a support group Doctors are great for clinical stuff, but in my experience, nothing beats talking to people who have been through similar experiences to let you know you're not alone, and to help provide some hope.

Funsies: You get to own and explore your recovery. It's a golden opportunity for serious introspection. If you gotta do it anyway, may as well bear fruit.
This has probably been the most encouraging realization I've made recently - helped in part by a similar thing my therapist said to me in my most recent session. I've felt particularly isolated by the feelings I am experiencing and I haven't been able to step away from them enough in order to gain perspective. I'm starting to now.

As for taking action - I apparently don't have a leg to stand on because they will argue that the patient was acting involuntarily during the incident, that he was compromised by his infection and subsequent mental state at the time. It's kind of like the temporary insanity plea.

I'm not in a position financially to take leave at the present time although I have decided to take some time off at Christmas. It's a small thing to look forward.

Group sessions - the thought of sitting in with a group of people repulses me. I don't know why that is - but it just does.
