Tomorrow I will have electrodes placed on my scalp to read electrical signals in my brain. It sounds weird and it is, but it’s for a good cause. It’s an EEG to find out if those weird episodes I had when I couldn’t find the right word are seizures.
I had this done before in order to know more about my epilepsy and once my doctor found the medicine that controlled my epilepsy I thought I would never need one again but tomorrow I will have my second EEG. This will be a 24 hour EEG that will be taken out on Friday.
It is not very comfortable having wires sticking out of your head and having to carry the record machine to which the electrodes are attached. If I remember correctly I cannot use any electronics during those 24 hours, meaning no cell phone and no computer. I was already able to survive that once, I just hoped I wouldn’t have to do it again.
Wish me luck! I’ll be back on Friday to tell you about it.
