    Paying for an MRI/MRA

    Hello Mighty Community! Does anyone have any advice on how to pay for an MRI/MRA? My roommate needs them. She’s on her parents’ insurance still but no one in her family has been sick this year so there’s been no movement on their deductible. It will cost her 6 months of our rent to get these done, which she can’t afford #ChronicIlless #MRI #Finances #Insurance #Health #Brain #HealthInsurance

    Sneaky intersection of Post Concussive Syndrome, Trauma and ADHD #PCS #Trauma #Brain injury #ADHD

    @mattsloan Info pls:) Thought car accident dislodged buried emotions, but wondering if there’s more to it than a brain/nervous system toss? What’s known re the misdiagnosis of presenting similarities of PCS, Trauma, and ADHD? Anyone?

    Thank you for this. Instead of trying I am putting forth effort ( I just have to remember to give my self praise - self care doesn’t come easily to me

    I took an anxiety test . I have a diagnosis of PTSD, not military related. The results of the test said that I over-think, because I am avoiding intense emotions. My counselor said just the week before that I was supposed to feel the feelings, not judge them, not focus on them - and then sweep them out the door.

    There was a quote at the beginning of my test results: Anxiety is what happens when you have an absolutely ridiculous thought … but then you start to believe it. —Brianna Wiest

    Since then I am starting to hear my own negative thoughts and writing some of them down. I am understanding why DBT is needed so I can replace, not avoid those ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts). There seems to be so much to work on and I feel guilty, and weepy and now avoidant and fearful I will get another job, and other stuff. I love to research & learn though. I told my sister, that my constant researching is the pinnacle of over-thinking - she’s a mental health counselor, she didn’t see the connection. The pre-frontal cortex while maybe the end process of even sensory processing, the amygdala deals more in the memory capturing and storage especially around emotions. No wonder it is so hard to prioritize and otherwise use those executive processes, if the amygdala is cluttered or unstable. Always Curious -Christine #Anxiety #Brain #PTSD #Emotions
