Sleep deprivation

Storm-writing, I haven’t posted in a week. I have written three articles and immersed myself into the novel in progress. It’s streaming out. No time to sleep. In the meantime I have to do a bunch of brain work.

After brain surgery, everyone wants to do all of their follow up. No problem except when I say something about wanting to get my full brain function restored. Then suddenly I’m selfish, needing to be more grateful, etc. Really?

Thanks to my PCP understanding this need for cognitive function, I’m turning over my full care to him. Yes, I’m still doing my follow-up diagnostics with all the specialists. Yes, I do the therapy. But I’m allowing the doctor who cares most about my wellness to lead.

Next up is a battery of tests requiring sleep-deprivation beforehand. Seriously. No problem there.

For once the brain work supports my writing.

  1. That does not sound like fun, Lucie. Not the writing part, of course, but the battery of tests. Unless they’re testing my love of ice cream, I don’t believe any battery of tests is fun. Good luck!
