I was able to be put in touch with a local therapist so as to make me more likely to be able to make my appointments, and that if I can’t, she can potentially come to my house.
It was a typical first appointment, discussing the overview of my life history: ADD, Depression, Anxiety, and the “Seizures.” We discussed plans for going forward with Disability, and what we can do in the one month left before my hearing.
We’re going to be focusing more on the triggers (the anxiety sensitivity) and looking at “Conversion Disorder” as the main focus rather than the seizures, since my “seizures” are not epileptic.
I’m feeling hopeful for the help she is willing to give.
I had a couple small spasm episodes, and when a siren went down the highway (1/3 mile away?), my body locked up and I went into some convulsions, but mostly my muscles locked in a weird pose, and it hurt a lot. I give the episode a 5/10 on my scale (cover photo episode was a 9/10, really bad, but not the worst).
