Hello..I am new

Postby dimi1 » Sat Nov 21, 2020 5:05 pm

and so happy I found this site!!..I just found out I am 4/2...and the reason I was tested was --to lose weight. Find out why my sed/rate inflammation test was high. and also because I found out that APOE 4 has issues with recovering from head injuries...I had a blow to the head in 2009 and was knocked out...It was a mild TBI...but like I read on the founders story of her brain injury...I too had balance issues, falling, cognitive issues and depression and anxiety...and still today there are whole blocks of my life I cannot remember...I FEEL VINDICATED...because I knew all what I was experiencing was due to the head injury...but the Neuro diagnosed me with depression , anxiety and conversion therapy ...and when I asked how conversion diagnoses related to my numb left side and dragging my left leg around...I got nothin...so now...I have been tested, I am preparing to follow the diet, start walking etc...but I feel like I need support and accountability...I think my therapist I see is useless and I do not know if she can help me recover/ go in a new direction...are there any local support groups??? I live in louisville ky...and I am so happy I found this site!!!
