I recently got a CT scan done (I sustained a head injury in a car accident) and it came up that I have hypodensity white matter in my left hemisphere. I've tried googling it but everything I come up with is too technical for me to understand. I've also had abnormal MRIs, MRAs, and so on. My brain activity is also abnormal. Has anyone else had any of these scans and do they come up abnormal? Is this something to be expected of a mental illness, or is it indicative of something else? I don't have brain cancer, I don't have a brain lesion, that's about all the doctors have come up with. I really can't afford to get this checked out any further, we're talking $1000 a pop with insurance (I'm earning about $8,000 annually less 2 grand for pills and therapy). I'm really starting to get scared. I try to be flippant and say my brain is Abi-normal (my name's abigail) and that's what makes me so smart (S-M-R-T!) But I feel the facade weakening. Someone, please respond.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...

It's a lie that's hard to disbelieve in the moment, and it's only after we've indulged in the impulse that we realise we fell for it again. I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
