Mental Hygiene

So I just got back from my second appointment with the psychotherapist to complete my initial assessment, which couldn't be done in one session.  It is tentatively confirmed that I am an incredible mess, which I don't think should surprise anyone.  Depression, general anxiety disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, some other things, maybe, I don't remember beyond that.  She didn't write a list for me or anything.  (Well, she did write a list of things I should discuss with my doctor and my psychiatrist, since I mentioned that I wouldn't remember them, but of those things it only mentions ADHD.)

So.. time to see about making and eating some breakfast, than calling Social Security and Social Services again to update my information with them and stuff.  After that, I think I'm done for the day.  Tomorrow is my first session with the psychiatrist, and I'll need to call the vision place about scheduling an appointment (they aren't open on Mondays).  Oh, and I guess I need to find a local AAMCO or something to schedule a transmission diagnostic and fluid exchange for sometime next week or something.  And then Wednesday will be going to the medical center to see the results of the blood tests, to discuss the things my psychotherapist recommended, and to ask about some additional tests.

Update: Oh yes, there was talk of agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and the possibility of brain injury.  I think that was about it.

Brain injury? Yikes! What happened?

Well, I have hit my head a couple times, and Borrelia burgdorferi (the Lyme disease bacteria) can get past the blood-brain barrier pretty easily, so who knows? I don't suspect the car accident or that time I fell out of a tree as a kid have any significant correlation to my current problems, though, and it's mostly a matter of my health being so crappy and my chemicals being out of balance or something.

She was just running through some screening checklists, and I do exhibit a goodly number of the symptoms of brain injury. I pretty much cover the entire spectrum of left-side and diffuse brain injury problems, as well as some of the right-side injury symptoms.
