"I *was* swimming. I was fighting. And then I thought, just for a second, I thought 'What's the point?' And I let go. I stopped fighting. Don't tell anybody."

Amygdale: Recalls emotionally charged memories
Thalamus: Receives sensory information like behavioral, thinking and learning
Hippocampus: Process long term memory and recollection.
Helping Meredith Grey
You can take medications or get involved with Psychotherapy to help with condition. I recommend talk therapy over drugs because symptoms are surrounded by the enviromental that she is in.
This will help recognize her condition and mood, feelings, thoughts, and behavior. Learn ways to manage and cope with condition. This will help with making decisions, defeat negativity, and improve social situations.
