Default Not sure if I belong here.

Hi.
I got hit in the head with a machete in November. I spent some time in hospitals, went home, was getting better everyday, then, bang. I got an abscess in my brain. I don't even want to remember that.
Now, I'm physically OK. I have problems with vision and I think I have l'hemettes syndrome as I get pins and needles at best and often full on shocks when I look down while bending my neck forward.
My physical wound has healed. But I have a big dent in my skull over my occipital lobe. My vision is seriously impaired in the bottom right quadrant. I can't afford further treatment. Is there a chance this will resolve itself?
My doctor also says I have PTSD and gave me pills. I can't take them as they make me feel wrong. I do have problems controlling my emotions.

What to do?

Hi Neil

Welcome to NeuroTalk .

You could check out the TBI/PCS forum (https://www.neurotalk.org/forum92/). It is very active so if you describe what has happened to you I am sure that you will get helpful responses from other members.

As far as your PTSD is concerned, often non-pharmacological approaches like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are highly effective. Can you get your doctor to refer you to somebody who uses CBT with their clients?

All the best.

That looks like a good forum for NeilB to check out. Have a good weekend. Your welcome to come to the Bipolar forum for your emotions. There are people there who will want to help you. Brokenfriend
