me and a psych evaluation (august 1995)
this is a psychological evaluation i was given when i was fourteen years old. it was done by the first psychologist i ever saw.
just a couple of things:
1. the medications. this was just the beginning. within a year or so, there were many more. it makes me sick to think about all the permanent damage – both mentally and physically – i have from the medicine i took when i was a kid. some thought i was under- medicated, while others thought i was over-medicated. i’m thankful now that there is a lot more focus on children and anti-depressants/psychotics.
2. the only things i really blacked out of this report were names, phone numbers, or personal things relating to others. none of it is especially relevant to my issues, and the couple of things that are will be addressed later.
3. it is both scary and sad to see just how little things in my head have changed in the past sixteen years.
