So I had a psychotic episode 12 years ago due to a combination

Resolved Question:

So I had a psychotic episode 12 years ago due to a combination of taking LSD and staying awake for 14 days. I've put the whole experience into a memoir, and I've just finished the second draft of a chapter about the neurological aspects of what was going on during the first seven days. It's about three pages of text, and I'm trying to find someone to glance over it to make sure I haven't made any glaring errors in my research. Help?

I am not a neurologist but as a physician perhaps I could review your text and give you suggestions where the medical facts don't make sense.

Let me know if I can help.

Awesome. Here's a link to a PDF. There are links to the sources at the bottom; I haven't settled on a citation style yet.
