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.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
