Yesterday I had my EEG placed on my head! It was diffidently not very attractive what's so ever! In fact once I walked out of the office I was embarrassed! I had the paper to my mouth, which is what they gave me to journal everything I did while on the EEG. I guess I was hoping that maybe the piece of paper would hide me from everyone around. (LOL) I could not get to my car fast enough. Amit had a few laughs but he was not as bad as what I thought it would be. I had to let my parents dog's out before I got home ( though getting home felt like forever even though it was only 20 minutes away from the Dr's office ) I was not sure if my mom's dogs were confused or just not happy because my mom was not there. Her one dog sat on the deck while her little adorable pug ran out to the yard. It took a bit of time to encourage the dog to go out in the yard, and me.. Well let's just say I was very happy that her yard was surrounded by a stockade fence where nobody can see me (LOL) !
Finally I was able to get home. All day I had to sit around and do odds and ends, but I could not use my cell phone or lap top. I could not even use the Microwave, so what I would do is place something in a microwave and then run out the kitchen and have my son push the start button and just simply stay out the kitchen till it was done. What stressed me the most was not being able to use my phone. My cell phone is my life. I can do just about anything on my cell phone and to not be able just simply check my email stressed me out. I was able to get on my desk top which my kids use but it just was not the same ... I actually had to sit on a chair at a desk !! WHAT ?? !! Not my style.. has not been in a year now ! You can not expect me to do it now.. how dare they! lol
What was driving me crazy was the fact that I had to continue to keep writing down in my "Journal" every little thing I did. They now know how many times I went to the bathroom, watched TV, Sat down, Spoke on the LAND LINE phone, yelled at my kids, walked around the house, and so on. All the times where important too and to top it off every time I felt I had a "symptom" I had to write it down and push a button on this small pack that I had to carry around with me like a pocketbook.. which I also had to sleep with !
I woke up this morning looking even worse then when I went to bed. I looked like a damn Science project.. My daughter Jordan told me I look like a freak from a scary movie and that it freaked her out! I was thankful that I did not have to wait too long today to have it taken off. I left as soon as my kids got on the bus and headed right to the Dr. office about 25 min away. I was late for my apt. but I got there. The whole time I was driving I had my hood of my jacket over my head! (LOL)
I finally was able to get all those wires off my head, but the next challenge was .. was trying to wash out the oil that they used to get the glue off, I jumped right into the shower the minute I got home. Washed my hair three times and still as of tonight I am pealing glue that looks like dry Elmer's glue out of my head!!!
This Thursday is my Stress Test and I should also be getting back my results from my 24 hour urine test. I don;'t want to sound crazy, But I really hope they do find something wrong so I can then be healed!!!
Oh and by the way, I know I said I may take a pic of me all wired up, but to be honest as horrified as I was, there was NO way I was going to have a pic taken! LOL
