We got up at the crack of early and headed into the city for a neurology appointment today. I told the doctor the truth about Brains Of Oatmeal while taking my current medication, and he swapped me to another medication instead. I will wean off of Vimpat and move to Keppra. I just took my first dose, and we shall see. He mentioned that one of the most common side effects is The Very Cranky, and I mentioned that it's just as likely since I already Have The Very Very Cranky on Vimpat.
He asked me for the umpteenth time, was I opposed to surgery to fix my brains. I said I was on the fence and that I would go ahead with the months of testing as a pre-surgical patient.

I've got the Continuous EEG testing done, the rest come next! Read closely, some are really "fun," like the catheter to my brains!
So. That's a lot of "fun" to consider, so I had to dance.
