I had a brain injury, which can exhibit many mental illness symptoms, and result in incorrect diagnosis if sent to the psychology department. Correct diagnostic imaging can accomplish treatment immediately instead of waiting 6 months ( wrong!) or incorrect antidepressant prescription (this is how you can go to prison). Seek brain injury specialist or neurology department.

These are great. I would add: Q. Have you had a crash or hit your head recently? Did you tell your doctor? Any periods of missing memory? Have you had a triple tessla MRI brainscan recently?
