Dear Forestx5,

I have depersonalization since 2005. I am 29 now.

I joined this website about a month or so and one of the first posts I read was by you.


There you had mentioned about Focal Aware Epilepsy. I didn't understand what it was.

However I read a little about it here and there after that.

Then last week I came across your below post.


Next day morning while I was getting ready for work I had a breakthrough. Suddenly it occurred to me that the problems I've been dealing with could be explained as brain seizures. I used to think I have Aspergers, Bipolar and OCD. And some physical conditions such as Gastritis and IBS.

I went to see a neurologist this week and I did a EEG. I haven't got the results yet. I don't know if this EEG will be enough to get a diagnosis because I don't think I had any seizure activity while doing the EEG.

My this post is a Thank You for your compassion towards other people. Even though I haven't got a diagnosis yet I know for a fact you've changed my life for the better.

I read many posts by you in the last few days and I came to know a little about yourself and your journey.

I would like you to know that I hope to always remember you with a feeling of loving-kindness.

Sorry about your experienc, Abe, but that's pretty much all that you get. Early in my illness I had hope that some doctor somewhere could help me, tell me what I'm dealing with, or make suggestions about what I can do. And they just treat you like crap. Reluctantly giving tests, and pushing you out of the office. It may be a factor of national or other insurance though. The only doctors that ever paid me much attention was the ones I paid for myself. If you have the money, it may be worth taking that route (I'm sure there are some private practitioners still in Sri Lanka, right?)
