TEMPORAL LOBE EPILEPSY!!
I lost 36 years of my life to Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, and I am tired of seeing people who are misdiagnosed and lost and locked away and I can't understand it is so SLOW to catch on. HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE SWALLOWED UP BY SO CALLED PSYCHIATRIC DIAGNOSIS?
This checklist saved my life. It only takes TEN of those SYMPTOMS to have a diagnosis of TLE and YES, YOURE RIGHT. MOST PEOPLE HAVE SOME LEVEL OF IT.
I BEG YOU, if you are taking "psychiatric" medications, please show this checklist to your doctor and see how you score on it.
Actually, you can check off symptoms yourself and go to your doctor and ask him or her WHY they don't know about this?????
The most important question is "Do you have smell hallucinations?" and if they aren't asking that you need to ask why!? Smell illusions are the first sign of a neurological disorder.
Autism = TLE
PTSD = TLE
ADD = TLE
ADHD = TLE
Depression = TLE
Schizophrenia = TLE
"Bi-polar, or manic depression" = TLE
Alzheimer's Dementia = TLE
Wake up and smell your neurons burning!!
