    Re: My Brain Hurts Brian :-)

    Dear Luba
    Thank you for your lovely support. I shall take advantage of my free day once this next week is over. I've a few hobbies I need to get back into and this should allow me the time.

    Health first and the rest will follow.

    Yeah, Health first and the rest will follow. Absolutely true, and yet sadly so often forgotten these days. I don't think people in general relax enough, or spend enough time on their hobbies and interests.

    The appointment is less than a week away. Hope there won't be more delays / cancellations / rescheduling, and that the doctor is willing to give an informal diagnosis / first impressions based on the scan. Because then you know what you're dealing with. Sometimes not knowing what is going on is far scarier than knowing, even if the knowing is about not-the-greatest-news.

    SO true! I need a 48 hour day to do all my hobbies and interests as I get so involved with most of them that, before I know it, a couple of hours have passed! Maybe I need to set up an alarm? Just thought of that..
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    It's an honour to have 'met' you, Rosie!

    I firmly believe hobbies are more important than dusting...in case someone visits and does the 'white glove test'.

    Same here, Luba. Often times I just opt out of doing anything that's my hobby just because I know it'll take hours to really get into it. Which is pretty bad. The alarm idea might not be a bad idea at all.

    Thank you for your reply, DanielC. I still haven't tried the alarm idea though.

    Re: My Brain Hurts Brian :-)

    Hello my lovelies, did you miss me? I missed me

    I had to take a step back as things began to overwhelm me. A quick update as I want to browse the site, I have had good news, Epilepsy has been put on the backburner for now, but not discounted, and I am waiting for an intake appointment for Conversion Disorder/PNES treatment (laymans terms : pseudo epilepsy which is not controlled by meds or by myself)

    It will be interesting to see how things go but for now I deal with one minute/hour/day at a time - like I've told others - this is not life threatening but life changing.

    Will visit again soon for another update but for now - enjoy the Summer dearies.

    Rosie, you are a very inspiring person and will do whatever it takes!

    Glad to hear that some progress has been made, and that you're wresting back control over your life.
