Can anybody help me ?
I am 20 years of age, have been to various medical doctors, child
psychiatrists, neurologists none
of whom have established the specific reason as to why I live in a
constant state of such stress
and anxiety that life is becoming more and more unbearable for myself and
In 1994 an EEG indicated a right temporal dysfunction of the brain and a
cat scan showed
damage on the emotional side of the brain. My co-ordination is extremely
poor and I'm dyslexic.
Had encephalytis a 3 weeks, Syd.CHOREA (12yrs)
Between 3-5 times per week, when an anxiety attack presents itself, my
tongue slurrs, vision is
not clear and I lose co-ordination drastically - if in the company of
people I have to flee and
make a total idiot of myself.
Things have got so bad now that I cannot bring myself to face another
specialist or anyone else,
and try explaining what goes on inside me - BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW WHAT
My mother, who has never given up on me, has complete records regarding
medical reports from birth, school career. IQ test etc.
If anyone out there thinks they can give us advice, suggest that we look
at a completely different
angle for a solution or at least some relief, please contact us :
