My EEG and MRI were totally normal.

So that's that I guess. I'm simultaneously relieved and disappointed. At least I know I'm not going to drop dead from some brain problem. But it would've been nice to have some tangible, possibly fixable problem. My plan now is to just trudge onward and try to live as best I can.

I understand how you feel. At least you have more information about who you are. Before I had my MRI, I was thinking my hippocampus might have gotten

scarred. That is certainly nothing to hope for, but it could have explained my symptoms. I was thankful my MRI was normal. But, my EEG was pathological

and it explained everything. When you are chronically ill, sometimes an explanation is all you can hope for. I coupled my explanation to a decision to

undergo ECT, and it was a game changer for me. Good luck to you!
