    Not sure if am in the right place so sorry if am posting this wrong, I am type 1 brittle diebetic for 18 years now and have a list of complications, but the problem is not that, I h a d a serious car crash three years ago and was very poorly after the crash I had a mri scan which was ok so the let me go home, however after a few days the pain increased through out my body and I was rushed back to hospital I was hospitalized for four months they said I had a nervous breakdown as I was very confused and had many many problems plus they could not stabilize my diabetes, I new myself this was not the case and told them as best I could that I believed that something was wrong with my brain, three years on and I am still suffering all the symptoms of a brain injury but still the doctors blame my diabetes does anyone know we're I can get information on the subject I have looked at tbi but it only gives info on the brain injury and not anything about how to distinguish between the to, I no 100per cent that before the accident I was a different person but how do I get the doctors to understand and believe me I gave up after awhile but things are so bad now that I need to try again because i need the right help, thank you Michelle

    Thank you so much today I am going to see a medical expert so maybe he she may help but reguarding insurance claim so I doubt it they prefer to blame the diabetes as it is easier but I live in hope
