If there was a way for me to share every detail of my mental health journey, people wouldn’t believe me. They would think I’m exaggerating. I’ve been to countless numbers of doctors in all different states and I’ve been admitted to hospital after hospital which insurance wouldn’t always cover. When I was eight, doctors diagnosed me with a severe case of Tourette Syndrome and OCD. There was no way they could prepare me for what was ahead, there wasn’t even much they could do for me besides prescribe pills.
A significant challenge that I faced in my life occurred when I suffered a traumatic brain injury in 8th grade. Due to the injury I faced, I was unable to attend school for about a month, and I had to undergo multiple therapies over the span of two years. During this difficult time in my life, I learned that sometimes people judge a person unfairly. While I went to therapy, I looked normal. I did not have any physical obscurities, and this gave people the assumption that I was “normal” and that I could pursue the same activities as them with the same vigor.
The medicine they gave me made me feel worse, I couldn’t move without creating more pain. Why was nothing working? Why did I feel so nauseous? Was I ever going to feel normal again? I would soon be told news that would make me alter my lifestyle.
An Unbleedable Tail On March 18, 2014, I thought I was a goner. Just about a week before that I had went and got my tonsils taken out. That day was just one of those days, nothing was going right. After the surgery the doctor came in and explains that the surgery went well but I did bleed more than most people and instead of cauterizing the holes shut, he had to stitch one.
This relates to the madness mythic journey. This already happened but it's still my worst fear. Letting stress take over and consume me is what I am scared of. Stress causes so many problems. The list for what stress causes is very long.

I think he had a severe episode of labyrinthitis and the residual balance disturbances from that. MRI is pending with the results which the MRI was done about two weeks ago, but the results so far have not been available. I would continue the use of meclizine as needed. 2. He has nasal congestion that has helped with Flonase.
Another procedure is the removal of spleen (splenectomy). An abnormally enlarged spleen can decrease the levels of blood cells (platelets) that allow blood to clot, and can also cause severe pain and contribute to anaemia. Although splenectomy has led to improvement in certain symptoms, this surgical procedure carries risks, which are weighed against benefits in each individual case. A pneumococcal conjugate vaccine should be given one month before surgery, if a splenectomy is required. For the first two years after surgery, 250 mg of antibiotic prophylaxis, usually penicillin is given twice a day.
I think it’s genius mainly because I feel like doctors in hospitals and drug programs definitely contributes to the drug war in America. I’ve recently went with my mom to a few emergency room visits. And never in my life have I seen so many highly addictive drugs being given out to patients in all my life. Even my mom hasn’t seen anything like it. My mom was in the emergency room and while she was there, she developed a headache.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Only in darkness can you see the stars.” When I was ten I had a muscle spasm, and I did not tell anyone because I thought I had a brain tumor and my parents would not be able to afford treatment. The spasms continued to progress over the years and I still thought I was going to die, until three years later when I figured I had not died yet, so it must be something else. Being an immature child, I never told anyone. Most of the time I kept them hidden or when someone did notice I told them I had ‘cold shakes’.
The lowest number I had was 7, 000. However, this sickness didn’t stop me. I worked hard second I could. With the time I had to take off from softball, many people thought I would fall behind and not be as good as everyone else. However, it took hard work and dedication to be as good, even better than my other teammates.
Therapy was emotionally and physically draining process for seven months for three times a week. Therapy started in September and each session lasted for about two hours. I could not participate in any physical activity, barely could walk for a certain distance, and my grades started to drop. I was even advised to stretch during class if I did go to school. Throughout the day, I would get a tingling sensation in my leg, which felt like a bullet traveling down my left buttock and exploding out of my big toe.
The Big Injury It was all just a normal day ,except for when this happened. My mom was shocked. They never expected anything like that to happen. My doctor told my parents it was either I get the right treatment or I won 't walk right for the rest of my life, and I will have trouble running and breathing.
The whole appointment lasted almost two hours, but it was a very educational two hours, because in the end I found out that I not only had Scoliosis, but that I also had Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). There are three main types of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and I have the hypermobility type. It’s essentially a problem in your body that doesn’t allow you to produce collagen correctly. Unfortunately that affects the way
