This answer was rated:

I feel that the part of my brain dealing with emotions, mid/long term memory, my consciousness and soul (personality and mood) have been severely affected by being away from work for a while and from several bouts of severe depression in my lifetime. Is there a diagnostic test and a treatment you might recommend to assess the situation and act to reverse the damage? I'm only 34 with young family but seriously worried as I can't seem to function properly at the moment. Thank you in advance.

Yes, I take Ladose and follow psychotherapy sessions but would like to test structurally if there is any issue with my brain function.
