I am currently detained on a section 2 in a psychiatric ward but am being discharged on Friday as I had an MRI and they have discovered brain anomalies. They haven’t said MS because they’re psychiatrists and not neurologists, but they have referred me to a neurologist.
Thing is, I’m 25 and have had emotional difficulties since I was 17. This is my 20th hospital admission in the past 4 years. And only now are they telling me it’s not mental illness but due to organic brain issues.
I am emotionally out of control, normally depressed but I’ve become very angry, highly suicidal, and have even experienced euphoria which is what got me sectioned in the first place. They thought I had bipolar and borderline personality disorder…but no, a brain condition.
Does anyone else on here have similar issues? From what I’ve read it’s rare.
My great aunt had MS, so I do think that’s what it is.
