It’s important that these episodes are thoroughly investigated. Withholding this information from your therapist is a mistake. Your therapist can’t help you if you don’t report your symptoms.
I understand your fears but there’s nothing to “feel stupid” about. You are not deliberately causing these problems. If you had the power to make your episodes go away, you would have done so.
You should discuss these episodes with your therapist. Tell him or her all of the details. The more information you provide, the easier it will be to determine what’s wrong. Your therapist might suggest undergoing a medical evaluation. That would be a very wise idea.
Right now you are letting misplaced shame get in the way of your seeking help. Don’t ignore this any longer. Ask for help. Please take care.
