A couple of weeks. I keep feeling both responsible and powerless. Not responsible for her condition. I was the one calling her doctors the week before to say I thought she was having TIA's while they were saying that wasn't possible. Even when she was in the emergency room having a moderate stroke, the neurologist confidently told me he didn't think it was a stroke at all, but a seizure.
I know we're fond of saying how imperfect psychiatry is. It's been my experience in this that other branches of medicine are equally at a loss. When an ignorant layperson (and the very clever people of Babble) can diagnose something the medical professionals can't, something is very very wrong.
