I am not psychotic today, I am not on medication. Why should I take a medication? If I did take a pill starting today, I wouldn’t know if it worked, plus I’m not treating any condition
My Dr. argues it would help to prevent it from happening. But, if the Dr. has not looked at my MRI to see an enlarged ventricle of some sort, or tested my genes to see if I truly have this disease, and they don’t measure my dopamine, glutamate, or acetycholine levels, how the hell do they really know.

I am angry because my left eye proves I had a stroke. I have been hospitalized 4 times. After the 4th hospitalization I went to a neurologist and asked him, look at my eye, is there something wrong.

By process of elimination, tests coming back negative, I can confidently say it was a small stroke. No physician up to that point gave a ■■■■ about my eye, nor gave me the opportunity to talk about it and test for it.
