So today I went to my new neurologist. I have NF1 (don't ask me to spell out the whole thing. It's a complete bitch to spell), which basically means I have little, tiny, eensie-weensie tumors in my brain. My condition is not serious, but it could have been. I have to be monitered closely to make sure that my condition does not up and go off the deep end. But, I'm about ten years past the whole going-off-the-deep-end-mark. If it was gonna give me hell, we would have known by the time I was six. But anyway, I was dying to know if NF1 and bipolar disorder, or depression in general, had any links. When I asked my new neurologist (I had basically kicked my mother out of the room), he said he didn't know. He said that normally NF1 doesn't include physchiatric illnesses/diseases... but as the conversation progressed He asked me how I'd been feeling lately. I said that my mood has been all over the place for years now. I recognize that a lot of my depressive and manic syptoms are very similar to an adesoclent bipolar disorder. So he said he'll hit the books for me and see if there was a link. So yeah, I dunno. Mebbie he'll order me to a therapist or something. But it was a step, wasn't it? I'll keep you guys updated, I go for an EEG tomorrow.
