SRS I can't carry on conversations with people

    Im only recently realizing that this. I can't seem to stay focused on one topic. And I almost always give one word answers or often have nothing to add at all.

    This website helps though. As it is pretty much just like a social situation. It is very good practice.

    This is sort of an emotional outcry or something, but I also want to say that I was in a car accident as a child and landed hard on my head. My parents have never told me the details of my scans. Would this cause it? Or does it only develop at a young age?

    Eh?
    One-word answers or nothing to add is normal. I do that all the time. Not being able to focus might not be normal, but without knowing you it'd be hard to say why that is. It could be anything from lack of interest in the topic to something more serious like ADD. If you're making a concerted effort to focus and it's still not happening for you, make an appointment with your doctor to talk about it.

    If you're ready for those results, you should consider making the appointment with your doctor. Be careful not to let those results become a self-fulfilling prophecy, though. Try to view any negative results as a fence you need to walk around instead of a concrete block that's the source of all your problems in life.

    I've found that I can no longer eat sardines as they dull my mind. Maybe it's the mercury or some other chemical.

    Eat right, get plenty of sleep, drink pure water, exercise. It's the eating part that may be affecting you.

    You could try doing a MRI scan, to check if brain activity is normal during speaking.

    I'm sure the insurance company will love paying for that.

    "Oh, I am embarassed because I can't smalltalk with my office colleagues, can you pay for an MRI for me to see if my brain works right?"

    You don't need an MRI scan anyways.

    If you really are concerned, go and discuss this with your family doctor. If he/she thinks it appropriate, (i.e. you have an organic disorder) you can be referred to a neurologist who can diagnose a whole shitload of things with simple interview type questions in his office.

    But I doubt a neurologist is the type of medical professional you need. More like a psychologist. But start at your family doctor. He/she is the gateway to a whole raft of medical services. (i.e. you need a referral to see most specialists)

    Well, im curious to know if life long brain damage occured during that accident , you know a lot of people get wiplashed and are crippled for life , looks can be deceiving people can look perfectly ok from the outside but be a trainwreck inside, so i feel 'even if its just for your own sake for stopping about worrying about that car accident' that you get it checked out. I mean if you are still thinking about it now it means your soul still hasn't found peace with that current event , so even if it was just a case of soul healing to check if you are ok, i would have it checked.
