Advice on reaching the right people

Hello all,

I've been suffering from cognitive symptoms for years that have rendered me totally unable to function and every doctor I talk to can't help. A old family acquaintance who works in social media recommended that I make a website to gain attention, so I did (theblankmind) but I have absolutely no idea who to send it to, what circles to pursue, or basically just how to get it to the right people. Any advice on what to do would be amazing.

Not looking for a diagnosis or anything like that. I have seen many professionals in various fields (neuro-psychiatry, psychology, therapy, neurology, psychiatry) and received no answers. All I’m looking for is advice on where to look.

It's a difficult thing, to try and get attention within the medical establishment. You could try looking at the faculty lists of medical universities to find research-oriented doctors who might be interested in helping?

There have been a few members on here who have talked about a similar condition.
You are not alone in this.
I thought your website was brilliant, and I hope you get some helpful responses.

Perhaps the Royal College of Psychiatry may help:
