I just wrote this to a "doctor" that was supposed to just be a send and he'll help but then POP UP "pay me for the answer"... :(
I'd save that for the doctor I'll be seeing... Anyway, here is the message and partially my problem...

Hi there, I've got quite a few problems I've been dealing with for a very long time... But the main one I'm concerned with is my Dizziness and Forgetfulness. I remember the very morning it happened around 3 years ago. Me and friends would always go out and drink ALOT. One morning I woke up Dizzy, Unalert, and Forgetful... Almost as though I was still drunk, and it has not gone away since then... Its really getting in the way of my life quite drastically. If I could just feel alert, and normal again it would be life changing. I found that it could have been "Alcohol Induced Disorders". And that seems to be more logical than Chronic Fatigue Syndrome... Who knows, it may also be affecting this issue. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. -Steven Adams

So yes, when I was 16 and back in the "go out and party" stage this happened... I haven't even drank since then cause it scared me so much.. It didn't seem to be so much of a serious problem to my mom or step-dad so I've just dealt with it. I just don't want to anymore. I have problems as it is but I just can't stand feeling forgetful about everything and not being alert enough to even remember songs I wrote... Its affecting my life very badly.

Just to get everything right for a doctor so I don't forget (Because I'm very scared of getting diagnosed wrong) I wrote down some of the things I deal with day by day...

"My mind races, I change my mind alot, Sometimes I'll be really optimistic, Sometimes I get extremely depressed, I always feel dizzy, unalert, and forgetful, I havent been in a relationship in over a year because im scared of trusting and always worried, I get angry sometimes for no reason... out of nowhere, even if I am completely happy, in just a second it turns nearly uncontrollably, ..."

I really just want to someone rid myself of what I believe to be caused by Alcohol Disorders and fatigue...

If anyone at all can help me, please do so, I would appreciate it so much!
