I tested positive for C677T. Prior to my test results I was diagnosed as ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression, panic attacks, Bipolar Disorder and placed on enough meds to kill a horse. I got worse and never better. A psychiatrist told me, “You are non-compliant.” Meaning the drugs failed and he blamed me. My medical issue was misdiagnosed and left untreated. Psychiatrists and ordinary doctors are unaware this gene defect exists or how it manifests. Because I was sluggish in the morning and energetic once the sun went down the psychiatrist felt this meant I was Bipolar, which I am not.
I met someone with the MTHFR gene defect. They said, “You remind me of myself. Why don’t you get tested for this gene? If you have it then you know and can get treatment. If not? Then you rule it out. No harm done.” I discussed it with my doctor. She was embarrassed at not figuring it out sooner. She said, “I have a number of patients with this gene defect. Why didn’t I figure it out earlier? It makes sense this is your problem!”
My test came back positive. I was started on supplements. I was taken off of 20 different kinds of psychiatric psychotropic meds. I improved. People tell me, “You are like a different person! You are completely different now!” It is true.
My problems with many of my complicated symptoms are gone. I feel happy, settled and calm. My life has changed completely.
What appeared to be a psychiatric illness was in fact NOT. I simply have a common gene defect that requires supplementation. My mental health is fine when I supplement. I get suicidal when I don’t supplement.
