On Friday I have to go to the Neurologist and get wired for an EEG of my brain. I have been having a lot of random muscle twitching and we want to make sure that it’s my Fibromyalgia or if it’s small brain seizures. It’s most likely the Fibro, but the Neurologist wants to make sure there’s nothing else going on.
It’s actually going to be interesting. I’ll have many wires glued to my scalp and then my head will be wrapped with gauze. I plan on going to work right after the procedure and then going to work Monday before getting all the stuff removed. I’m going shopping today for either a head scarf or a hat that is nice enough to wear at work as a covering.
I’ve been telling my colleagues so that they are aware. I don’t want them to totally freak out when I come in with all of these wires and a battery pack. I’ve gotten some interesting comments.
One comment was that I should also bring in some aluminum foil so that I can block the Alien Brain Waves. My response was that they already live with me and barf where I walk at night.
Another comment was to use the day as a "freebie" and accidentally dump liquid on people I don’t like. I told that guy that it was a great idea and I would start with him first.
Also, I have been told that I’ll be the bride of Frankenstein. That was lovely. I told them to beware, I might turn into a mutant robot and "accidentally" kick their butt. Anyway, I already married the guy, murdered him and put him in my back garden.
Today, as my team lead kindly put it, I will be going in search of "head gear". This is like when you first get your braces, gone bad. I’m going to look at hats and fancy scarves to wrap on my head. I’d rather look like a cancer patient than a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle!
I’m having a good time with the whole thing. Why not? If I don’t I’ll worry and there’s nothing to be worried about. This is just a sanity check to make sure. I doubt that the results will be anything but normal. Well, ok, normal in the medical sense, not the mental sense.
I will take photos of the final product. I’m sure they’ll get pretty annoyed with me if I try to take pic’s while they’re adding the electrodes.
Have a good one!
