After thoroughly discussing the "white outs" that happen to me with my therapist and a neurologist over the phone I have discovered that I apparently suffer from absence seizures.
After I had a head injury at the age of 2 my parents were informed to watch out for any seizures. They like many people were completely unaware that what I was doing was having seizures, especially since when one hears the term seizure they typically picture a person convulsing or something like that.
So there's that....
I'm actually freaking the fuck out right now.
But on the plus side I have an actual explanation for my consecutive headaches that I barely notice anymore and my aversion to loud noises, consistent or otherwise.
