Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease. He doesn’t have an extensive case of this disorder but he does take medication to treat it.

Adam Lanza began perseverative hand washing, avoiding contact with other people, and becoming increasingly fearful. By fifth grade, AL had written and submitted 'The Big Book of Granny ' — a significant and violent text — and following that school year, his struggles began to escalate." With these precursors to crime very, very prevalent in his childhood, many would suggest to seek medical help and treatment for his behaviors. Although Lanza did remain in special education services beginning in preschool, he was soon after released when the specialists believed he had “met all the speech standards” according to ABC News. There is no way of knowing for a fact, but many do believe that if Lanza were to have stayed in specialized therapy and had been treated longer for his Autism Spectrum Disorder, the lives of many, including his mother and the twenty-six other innocent lives he took, would have been spared.

Over the past four years I have seen more doctors than an average person will see in a lifetime. From endocrinologists to neurosurgeons, I have tirelessly sought medical treatment for multiple traumatic brain injuries I incurred at a young age. Through my personal struggle I learned that there is no adequate treatments for concussions and traumatic brain injuries in the State of New Mexico. Although the lack of these services forced me to seek treatment outside my community, it has become my main motivation to return to my community and share the knowledge I have been fortunate to receive through these many experiences. At the age of fourteen, I was the unfortunate recipient of four traumatic brain injuries, within a six-month time frame, that would result in a diagnosis of post-concussive syndrome.

Keep in mind that theses studies were going on for more than 20 years.
He’d gone through so many doctors that he’d lost count, but they insisted that he’d only ever been with Dr. Fredriks. Michael had been crazy for well over a decade, and he was pretty sure he knew a thing or two about doctors, enough that he’d know if he’d only had one. *’Everyone forgets...’* he thought sadly, over and over, like a sorrowful moaning scream inside his head. “Many people have these types of delusions, Michael. It’s normal
