When I was having that problem, I went home to my parents' house to figure it out. Rather than provide the healing environment I needed, they shouted at me for being gay, for not having adequate health insurance, and (at 26) for not being graduated college yet.

This might sound like a broken record (I post this a lot), but have you had an EEG done? "Moments of profound spatial disorientation" can be classic signs of temporal lobe seizure activity. That would be a bad rap to get stuck with a psychological label for something that is due to neuronal instability in your right temporal lobe!

get things checked if ya haven't already..
