Yes, let us evaluate MY BRAIN


That’s right, today is the day that I had to have that thing done to my brain again.

You know, that one test…

No, the other one…

Well, that thing I typed about doing? Ya know? Doing one of those… Neuropsychological Evaluations.

Ugh. Been there, done that…. this is number three

THAT is not the MOST ENJOYABLE thing in the world, but doing the 2nd or 3rd… is better than the 1st time! A couple of hours is better than all day.

“OK OK OK….. Self, stop the complaining and start the explaining to the readers as to what happened.”

The whole thing started when I arrive into the “small testing room” and sit across from the testing lady with the testing table between us. (This seems sooo very familiar to me. As if I actually remember doing this before.) The tough testing lady starts to thoroughly test the item between the ears in my head. Test, after test, after test, after… It goes on and on. The BRAIN between my ears is asking…


But then…. that Brain starts to recognize something. This is the EXACT SAME test as was given to me last year at this time. Also the SAME one as was given when I FIRST STARTED all this testing of my brain before surgery. I can remember THAT! It’s that LONG TERM MEMORY that my brain hasn’t many problems with. I can remember the correct answers from then! Ah-ha! (Funny, but true.)

Ah… This wasn’t the truth with everything. I don’t need to type about those… But, there was one that I did remember the “trick” I came up with to remember the answers. Am I sharing anymore about this with anyone? Uh, no…. Well…. Still able to count with unmovable fingers. Fingers I have to put atop the table into a fist, just to show that I am not using them…. physically. You just figure out the rest I did with my eyes closed….. 😉

ENTIRE SCORE? Uh…. I’ll have that later on when I get it. But, as they informed me, it’s better than last year.

That’s all that matters.

Cognitive Testing Results

I have the results of the cognitive testing that I finished a couple weeks ago. Very long and informative evaluation. Many “big words”. Not too many things that I didn’t already know. My memory sucks. Compared to the last time I’ve had this evaluation, this one came out slightly lower. Could be because of age, or other things. They say that I should be living my life the way I already do by having a structured routine and relying on a smartphone to aid in my daily activities.

The evaluation goes on and on for 8 pages, but that’s the main things in a nut-shell.

Cognitive Testing

Well I finished the cognitive testing today. That wears you out having to do the deep thinking and remembering all day. I don’t know the outcome. I didn’t finish my 500+ questionnaire that I was working on at the end. I told the Doctor that I’d be at the hospital on the 8th anyway and I could finish it then while I’m sitting around doing nothing for seven days.

Type later.
