Well, I found a new neurologist. And I finally got an appointment with them in about 4 weeks’ time. I’ll be sitting down with my neuropsychologist to review their notes.
This makes me nervous. Looking at what’s been going on with me, and trying to articulate it with another person is… challenging. I worry that I won’t articulate things well, and we’ll end up going off on a tangent that’s just not consistent with where I’m at.
And then I can end up on yet another boondoggle.
No thank you. I’ve done that already — several times, over the years, and I have better things to do than try out new meds that make me feel worse (or just plain weird).
I guess the secret is in keeping things simple. Focusing on a few simple questions — like Is this sh*t going to kill me? — will keep things from spinning wildly out of control.
Also, staying rested and well-fed… not eating too much sugar… tracking my headaches when they come up. It’s all part of it.
I’m really more anxious than I am fearful. It’s just a lot of ideas and nervousness spinning around in my head. And things are very busy and chaotic at work, so that doesn’t help.
Oh, well. Time to go back to my experiments with numbers…
