In 2015 I was diagnosed with severe depression, quite soon after I was also diagnosed with schizophrenia. I went through a course of treatment with all kinds of antidepressants and antipsychotics , but I did not get better. It was only after a blood test that showed high levels of thyroid antibodies, it was suggested that schizophrenia might have been a misdiagnosis. I invested time into researching the connection between autoimmune diseases and psychiatric symptoms, and after coming across information on autoimmune encephalitis, I referred myself to a neurologist . I was then diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Encephalitis in April 2017 and treated with intravenous steroids. This blog is about my experience and findings related to new and unconventional treatments in psychiatry and neurology. I am not a doctor, but a patient. I don’t have the degree, but I do have a lot of experience to share.
