Later in therapy I clearly experience the problem when doing logic problems or things involving organizational skills. These tasks can leave me mentaly fatigued for days afterwords. My concern is a physical exam or casual conversation would probably show no problem. It is only when the specific area of my brain is tasked I kinda fall apart.
I would greatly appreciate any insight into this as I like everyone else am going thru life changing problems right now.
Based on what you have said, there is no way we can help you determine what kind of exam you will have to take. You will have to just wait and see.
I suffer from major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder and I was sent to both a physical exam and a psychological exam.
