EEG Update -after the neurologist

I had the neurologist in stitches. He laughed out loud at the ridiculous things they said to me. I love this neurologist, soft spoken but blunt. A nurse walked me in to the small office to get my vitals before he came in. I've gained some weight. I'm back up to a reasonable skinny weight,…

Wait a minute

"Patients with dreadlocks can't have EEG's" said central scheduling. WTF Try again without seeing my head. I just took pictures of the top of my head and sent it via text to the poor neurology dept. secretary who got a not too friendly transferred call from me. "I'm not shaving my head for an EEG."…

Five appointments

My case worker came to pick me up yesterday She is becoming more human less stiff and more compassionate now that she gets it, my chaos is constant.

I had something else I wanted to say

but once again, the brain took over and hijacked the morning. The dreams nightmared in my skull until I woke up hearing a knocking at the door. WOOOODPECKERS! PSYCHOTIC OCD BIRDS DRILLING FOR GRUBS They knock with the intensity of the police during a drug raid,(my neighbors were dealers, so this I know with certainty.)…

My Eldest Surly Reverie

So, he walked to his grandmother's house with his tail between his legs. Not really, he rolled his bike with most of his bags on his back with righteous indignation to her house livid that I had dared to push my will upon him. My seventeen year old man child seems to be cycling bi-polar.…
