I think since this is relatively”anonymous” and “safe”, i can tell you this without worrying about discrimination. I have epilepsy and was diagnosed with it about four years ago. I have had multiple tests done, and today, I had to get hooked up to a portable machine that I have to carry around for 24 hrs now. yay!
its an EEG, short for electroencephalogram. In other words, it just observing my brain activity. I’m pretty much okay with this. Of course, I look like an idiot with wires sticking out of my head and whatever.
But, theres one little thing to it. They wrapped this cloth thing around my head, and its too tight so now, my head REALLY hurts, and I have a feeling that theres no blood getting to my brain. So, not only can i not shower for 24 hrs, but i also have a raging headache that will stay for those 24 hrs.
what can i say? sometimes, you gotta deal with lemons. and make lemonade! delicious. Now, i can freak people out with my bellevue inpatient like presence! also, i have a chance for getting free pity dinner! yum. truthfully, ive learnt to deal with the inconveniences. life’s to short for complaining. In the words of robin williams in Dead Poet’s Society, Carpe Diem!

ps. I REALLY WANT TO ITCH MY HEAD, but the goddamn wrapping wont let me.
