Hello Amy,
I'm glad to see you're still posting, I'm still very concerned for you and your family. I think it's so hard when it feels like you've tried everything already and now these doc's probably think you're hysterical, right? That truly sucks! Many of us can relate to that, some have been dealing with that for years. I want to encourage you to keep trying despite feeling way out on the line. My fear of the docs writing all my quirks into those records kept me from actively seeking help for many years, but you're in a pretty desperate situation here.

Try a female practitioner if you haven't yet, that's what finally did it for me. All the male doc's (I know they aren't all like this, maybe it's small towns or something) just wrote me off as a migraine sufferer, epileptic, under too much stress, ADHD ect.. I was like "I've been trying to do myself in since I was 8, is that normal?" And they would say "Yes, if you're have headaches and ADHD and are overwhelmed." NO Way! First time speaking with a female doc and she was like "How did you keep this up for so long."

Keep fighting for what you need, don't give up, we're here and we're not going to let you be engulfed by this weight! Do what you need to do and keep yourself safe!
Amy, you're in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings and comfort I send your way.
