Mark,

I just had a horrid day. The endo I saw, without being aware of my symptoms or what I've been through, told me that my symptoms are caused by anxiety. She doesn't believe that h.e. exists, calling it a 'flavor of the week.' (This despite the fact that there are several cases similar to mine in the medical literature.)

My psychiatrist believes me, and my therapist believes me that something organic is going on. (Or at least have led me to think so.) Why can't these doctors talk to each other?

But I am going to try to get a G.P. that my mother is very close to, to order a SPECT scan for me, which will show if I _do_ have lowered brain activity. This way I can rule it out if it is not the cause, and start treatment if it is.

I have wanted to kill myself, but now I can't just because I can't give a jerk like her the satisfaction of writing me off as a nutcase.
