How can I find good psychiatrist? I think I have mild-cognitive impairment, but I don’t know how to communicate effectively.
Im just hoping that there’s maybe someone that can help here. Long story short. For one whole year I was sleep deprived, drug-abuse and some severe emotional trauma. I was able to stop doing drugs and get better sleep. After all that, I have had a couple of Depersonalization episodes, am always tired, have bad memory, anxiety and feel like I lack certain cognitive capacities. I went to a psychiatrist and she prescribed me adderall which I find weird (I thought maybe I didn’t explain my symptoms correctly) but decide do give it a shot either way. I try and it makes my anxiety and cognitive Incapacities worse. I stop taking it. I decide my brain maybe just needs time to heal (I don’t know obviously). It’s been 9 months. I have never had another DP episode. My anxiety is significantly better. However, my memory still sucks and still feel like I’m missing cognition abilities (for example I was a great speed reader, now it’s hard to concentrate and I have to read things over to understand them). Its also a little hard concentrating on anything. I also get incredibly irritable when I don’t get enough sleep. It feels like there’s a sting on my brain that makes me so angry. However, I’m so relaxed when I get 8+ hours of it. Im debating whether to go back to a psychiatrist or whether I should just wait and see if it gets better. It’s been 9 months and it’s gotten somewhat better, but I still feel uncomfortable feeling like I’m lacking some mental capacities. What should I do? Thank you for your help.
