sorry about the disconnect there! i hope you see this - if meds and therapy are not working, try a brain scan of your brain activity. i am no expert, but i am aware of the fact that mental health issues may be potentially caused by some physical damage to your brain. that's all. <3

hi, epg thanks for the sentiment, it is nice of you to follow up like this. while you're correct that trauma could be at play, i think holding off in recommending a brain scan (qeeg, mri or otherwise) is probably best. those are techniques reserved for expert diagnosis and are usually a reaction to very severe or subtle symptomatology. i wanted to clarify this for anyone who might see this and attribute their feelings to brain damage, which is a rare occurrence. in all cases, if you feel something is wrong, it is best to talk to a professional before becoming fixated on a prognosis. take care, all.

it took four doctors to properly diagnose my heart issue. i would never suggest a particular test to someone here. but i would say that if you are not happy with the way your situation is proceeding, it is a good idea to seek another opinion. two doctors often have different approaches.
