Hello every one. I am new here and hoping to find some information. I have suffered from depression and ocd for it seems like for ever I really didn’t realize until recently that I think I have suffered from it since I was a teen now 60. My depression has caused me to do things I didn’t want to do and has caused me to lose my marriage and have financial difficulty. So this is what I am trying to find out. As a child I had a bad experience with Encephalitis, causing hospitalization, my fever was very high and lasted for several days before the Doctor got it under control, later on when I was 18 I had a car accident which I was ejected from the vehicle and knocked unconscious for about 45 minutes, very dazed and had no idea where I was for sometime even only being a 1/2 mile from home. I have often wondered if those 2 incidents could have caused brain damage hence being a big part of why I developed depression. I am wondering if I should have a brain scan to find out, and if I did and there is some damage if anything could be done.
Thank you for any advice in advance.I hope this rambling makes sense
