Hey, Matt @hopeforhankey – I wasn’t mouthy during my tests! Okay, maybe I was a LITTLE. But at the slightest indication of hesitance, they stopped traffic until I asked them specifically to proceed. THANK YOU, medical people – this is exactly what should happen. I appreciate it. I’ve been testing since April. That’s why I’m so tired. I’ve gotten cleared by MANY doctors, and I saved the best for last: my lovely Neurologist. Yesterday, I had my first MRI fully deaf in the L and HoH in the R. This is important bc a brain MRI necessitates immobilization of the head so you can’t see them approach you with the needle. I have VERY difficult veins, which makes it a huge production. Hearing loss + PTSD means I need to communicate my needs clearly. And all the techs were great. I also got an EEG. Quote – Me: Oh! I forgot to say I have a hole in my skull [pointing]. Do any electrodes go there? Tech: No….why? Me: Ummm…..bc I don’t like people touching the hole in my head? Tech [patiently]:No, I mean, why is there a hole in the first place? Me: BAHAHAHAHA. Sorry. 🤣 #avmsurvivor #strokesurvivor #lifeismysport #learninghowtolive #shreddedgrace
