A bundle of trouble

2 years ago I was diagnosed with Depression and was put on anti-depressants which I came off of shortly after, I had been an insomniac for many years before and for about half a year later until I had met my current partner where the tables turned and I developed almost hypersomnia (yet still my sleep isn't what you would call refreshing even when I do get a good balance/routine/etc), About a year and a half ago I started having partial seizures of which I was observed by a number of neurologists and tests including MRI and EEG (Also an ambulatory EEG) which all turned up zero leading them to believe it was psychological, and why not... During these tests I developed other personalities which come and go and I still have the non-epileptic partial seizures and tiredness and depression (tiredness and depression are probably linked I know). Most of the time the personalities are bearable and my partner even gets along really well with a couple of them but the doctors are pretty much ignoring me now since last May and now and then the condition becomes almost debilatating. I have to start work in April or I won't have the funds on which to survive (I have looked into all other options but not having a job isn't helping my outlook on life anyway!) and I'm very muchly afraid that I will have a seizure in the middle of the day in front of everyone, change into a person that doesn't know anything and has extreme paranoia and generally flip-out! It sounds paranoid in itself but I had to leave my last job when the condition reared itself in the first place and now they won't take me back...

Any ideas at all?

Thanks :)

  • Thyroid being out of wack can cause many problems, and has been linked to all kinds of depressive states. Lyme disease, undx'd, is also in this picture. Do a google search, you may find what you need to there. Hope you can feel better soon.
