I just got back from seeing my neurologist to get the results of my spinal tap, done exactly four months ago today. From the MRI, it seems that it might be MS, but I don’t show enough symptoms to know for sure. The tap’s result didn’t show any virus, inflammation, etc., which is good news. My MRI did show some spots on my brain, indicative of MS, but because I’m not symptomatic the neurologist wants to do another MRI to see if there’s any change. I might have simply been born with white spots on my brain. This could explain a lot…
I still don’t know why I have a constant headache, but this time I got some medication prescribed to take care of that. Hopefully it will take care of that part.
I have a little confession to make. It may come to you as a surprise. It may even upset you. Actually I know it will. I know you read my blog even if you rarely leave a comment. My blog, from the start, was a place for me to vent, to joke around, to be “me”. I don’t pretend to be something (or someone) I am not. If you know me at all you do know that I like to tease, and that at times I can also be perceived as mean. I wrote “perceived” because; personally I don’t think I am. I’m direct and honest, and even confrontational, as my husband likes to point out.
One of the things I truly enjoy is misleading people, or “play with people’s head”. People are too often gullible. They take things for granted and don’t verify anything. They assume. As I’m growing older I try to develop my vigilance a lot more. I ask questions when I don’t know. You know that I’ll do a perception check if I need to. I even did it here; asking fellow bloggers if I’ve written something to upset them if I don’t see them around much. That is me. I understand that we’re not all the same. I would love nothing better than for you to inquire directly. If you want to know how I’m doing, why don’t you simply ask me? If I don’t want to answer you, I will tell you. If you want to know if I’m writing about something or someone you do know, ask me. I will tell you.
Please, don’t ASSUME, because like they say it makes an ASS of U and ME!
