Re: Head Injury and Depression
You might be interested in this: someone whose alias I can't remember posted a topic a week or two ago on this board, try doing a search on 'depersonalization'
or 'look inside your head', one of those should bring it up. I don't remember if the person specifically suffered an injury per se, but he/she did mention the sudden onset of a 'stoned' feeling a few years ago, which I thought might be of some relationship to what you are seeking, because that person ended up being prescribed antidepressants for what sounded like it might have actually been a neurological condition.
In fact not that I am a Dr., but I did post a reply to the person mentioning that the antidepressants may be partially masking the actual problem, via serotinergic effects. He/she was still experiencing symptoms. Anyway I asked in my reply if the person had felt 'blue' or sad along with the stoned feeling, but by then it was too late (the person did not respond to my reply). It seems he/she had decided to go down the path of some sort of 'depersonalization'
