my psichiatrist says that i have a cognitive disorder, and psichotic episodes.
i went through a burnout at work at the same time that i was going through an early menopause...
once i told my doctor, i am losing my memory, my short memory was slowly fading away.
i could picture it as a person who comes to the counter of my brain requesting information. The person at the counter looks back, and all the files are on the ground, there is no way to look for the answer. later on, the counter was also left empty...there was nobody to whom i could ask for information. I was simply going blank. i stopped reading, after a couple of lines it became a soup of letters. my mother has vascular dementia and has suffer her whole life from hyperthyroids
i was given antideppressives...it did not worked. I tend to be hyperactive so this made me aggressive. I stopped them.. then i was given seroquel a minimaal dose to help me sleep, i suffered also from aritmia and short breath as i slept...after two months i could barely function, talk or interact with others so i stopped it too.
my psichiatrist sent me to make a blood test, iron was low, b1, and b6 were low . I have always been in the range of hypothiroids and I was also very very low in estrogen.
I had to put a stop to the lifestyle i had and change drastically my rhythm and functions.
i started taking vitamins and supplements. Magnesium and calcium. I started with acupunture.
after six years i start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Some things are coming back.
others i might have to learn to live with them.
