Hello. I posted something about how i thought i was having some eye problem and went to the ophtomologist. well, im fine. guess i'll have to deal with the night time sight problems. well here are the problems i've had for many years now that are turning real bad:
1) this is the worst. i have an unbelievably bad short term memory. im forgetting everything and don't seem to care anymore because i've been to so many doctors and no one knows why. my train of thought is terrible, i'll take a load of ritalin or other adhd med and will still end up talking about the most random thing, and then another, and my brain keeps jumping from topic to topic. also number 1 is my horrible brain fog. it's ever present, and it's getting worse. im at a point where i can't function without an amphetamine like vyvanse. i find myself walking randomly to different places without any idea why, and forget hanging out with friends. i can't TELL what's going on around me!! it's like i'm dreaming!
2) this is a lot less important. well to me at least. i've been having a hard time stopping myself from eating, and it's always stuff that's bad for me. and i have no energy either. so i'll try to work it off but i find myself mentally unable to keep up with my body that seems to move lightning fast even though i'm runnin pretty slowly.
3) these also don't matter but might as well tell you guys: my hands and feet are always ICY cold, no matter what season of the year it is. also, im pretty lean and limber, but i have these love handles that are always there. it's very embaressing, plus my stomach area has always been kinda bulged. and there's the man boobs that are always there too. i don't know, i probably have body dysmorphia.
4) and there's the fact that im extremely moody. mood stabalizers and antidepressants don't do much, im just always anxious and fretting. don't know why. runs in the family, im too nervous to do any therapy because i have before and it never got to the root of the problem.
im sure there are other problems i have but like i said, my memory is terrible and im in a constant state of brain fog. LITERALLY from the time i get up to the time i go to sleep it's ***l. i don't even think about sex anymore! and im a 19 year old guy!
stuff that runs in my family is mostly mental illness, by that i mean bipolar disorder and anxiety problems. the other things thyroid problems, and other assorted things. i have tried many many doctors and therapies and im at wits end. i am so depressed and find i am never "in the moment" or able to enjoy life for very long.
i went to a neurologist last week and im getting a kind of "sleep eeg test" and another "24 hour eeg test" where i where this thing on my head all day that measures my brain activity. also im getting a blood test for things like liver problems and thyroid problems and hypoglycemia. (but i had the hypoglycemia test back in october and it came out fine)
please help! thanks...
