That Psych Lady….

You know, I should of just blogged about the past visit earlier this week, but …. (eh, I can’t think of a good excuse)… I believe now that I have had such a tiny-tiny change in my medication, it has effected my psych visits “a bunch”.

My Psych Lady before she had been acting as if she has never met a guy with “brain surgery” and NOW “brain surgery with the lowering of medication”…. Really? Really?
😛

We ate our lunch and did our talk.

As I was leaving, I was informed that we were going to keep visiting. So I asked…

“For a long time?”
“Sure.”
“Forever and ever?”
“Eh, maybe not THAT long….”

MAYBE? Oh, that’s the best word that has been said! Better than — NO WAY AT ALL!

🙂

Today is a Two-Day on a Tuesday!

Ok… Ok… This is Tuesday and this is FIRST a….

Psych Appointment

Just the usual…. while eating lunch…

Psych: How have you been doing?
Me: I’m doing good…..

You know, the usual…


Then the SECOND thing is…

Neurologist Appointment

Ah… What did we learn there today?
Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve seen one of my Brain Docs….

Me: I’m doing good…..
Doc: Let’s start lowering the Meds.

At the first appointment, I was ASKED how I was doing.
At the second appointment, I was TOLD what I will be doing.

Ugh, I think I did these appointments backwards today…
Eh, what am I going to do now…?

I think I will give myself a nice “pat on the back” for the hard work.

😉

Beautiful Monday.

Saw the Psych again today on Monday.

Ate burgers while talking about things which are things that are discussed with a Psych

Before we finished up she tells me…Uh, starting at the beginning of the new year, our schedule is CHANGING.

The First thing is…
We will only see each other EVERY OTHER WEEK.

The Second thing is…
The day of the week where everything is scheduled to happen, has changed! I am not lucky, and now I have to “change”. She “just learned” that she will be busy at noontime on Mondays. I asked:

“What about 1 o’clock on Monday?”
“No. I’m busy then too….”

Soooo…. Next year it will be: EVERY OTHER WEEK on TUESDAY?? Geeze!

Homework from a Psych??

Saw Ms. Psych-lady on Monday. Ah, this was a different Monday. Not day-of-the-week, just what we did! Monday was a good day to have an abnormal Monday. Any other day, who knows. But, today was a good Monday for a change.

Ate differently. Not the best…. Not the favorite….. But, it was a good change. Had a good discussion about… things you discuss with people like that.

OK. End of that aimless wording such stuff. 

After eating, we walked to the bookstore. What was purchased? I bought something. She bought something.

MY PURCHASE was a Monty Python poster for my house:

Now, my Psych decided that she would purchase a book to read (from a bookstore??). What a concept:

wpid-20151102_161101.jpg

THE MAN WHO MISTOOK HIS WIFE FOR A HAT

Mmmm… “Clinical Tales”. As we left the store and walking back to the car, she put the book in my hands.

She gives me the orders of: “READ THE BOOK! YOU WILL BE TESTED NEXT WEEK!”

HOMEWORK AND TESTING??? Really??!!

I tried to prove to her that this would be an impossible thing for me to do by holding it to read. (“Homework” was never a favorite thing back in school…)

I took it upon myself to inform her: “I cannot hold it in my SHAKY RIGHT-HAND to read this.

She had forgotten that my right-hand shakes and my left-hand does not. I reminded her of this by retelling the “story” of my brain. You know, my messed up left-side of the brain is a messed up right-side of the body. All based upon where the location of that ‘ole BRAIN that I got fixed. (Not fixing any shakiness on the RIGHT SIDE, but the LEFT SIDE works fine.)

“Just read it and we’ll talk about it NEXT WEEK!”

SOLUTION! I bought the book for my Kindle with the Audio version when I got home. Ahhhhh…. I’ll just listen to the dang thing.

SO, I guess I was given work to do by my teacher <cough> I mean Psych lady.

Okay… I went, so I might as well blog…

It was that day again. That first day. That Monday. Her day, but NOT HER CHOICE THIS TIME!

“Are we getting our superb choice that you have always made for us to enjoy our eating,” she asks.

“Why, yes, you are correct. That burger-place is the most favorite of us both, you have always seemed to be acting full of choices and choose against it when the choice is your own.”

Unfortunately… ya-da ya-da….


We had our intelligent discussion while eating, but then starting having a “DEEP DISCUSSION” about the new thing here in town. Purchasing of Fiber Optics for Internet, Television, Telephone… la-de-da was already on her “side-of-town”. ME? I HAVE BEEN WAITING A LONG TIME!!!

What? What? What? Why would a person being offered Fiber Optics to their house just turn it down??? This was just… disgusting for her to say that she could not decide on whether she should invest in Fiber Optics or not! YES!

“YES!” I yell at her, “This should not be anything that you have to actually think about. DO IT! DO IT! Make the Investment and bring in the enjoyment of the system to your heart and family.”

Who knows what the psych-lady will decide to do after my bothering her, but yet, she bothers myself. We will see….

Another Pazartesi (Turkish)

What is done on a Monday…? Uh….  Okay.

  1. Visit the Psych Lady.
  2. It’s HER turn to choose the lunch place.
  3. She INSISTS that we need to go back to our Natural Grocery Store (whatever it is called)
  4. Eat, Drink and Talk there

Then we went back to the office. Finished…

Ah, wait! Here’s a good part to yawn about. Afterwards, I was outside and waiting for the taxi to pick me up, like he is scheduled to do. I wait. And wait. And wait…. I txt him on my cell phone to see where he is.

Me: Yo, are we running late today?
Taxi Guy: No, I am sitting in the parking lot.

Ok, this is a tiny parking lot and I can see everyone from where I stand.

Me: Uh, no. I’m standing outside the psych building and viewing the parking lot. Don’t see you.
Taxi Guy: Hold on. I’ll be there in a minute.

He txt me earlier that he was “ALREADY HERE”. Found out from him that he was waiting at the hospital parking lot, not where I was at.

He had forgotten what day it was and where he just dropped me off an hour ago…. Eh, no big deal.

ha ha…

Children, what happens on ngeMisombuluko? (Zulu)

Moon-day is Psych-day.

Saw her today and what happened? Hmmm… What usually happens on a Moon-day?

Well….

Psych: “What is for the stomach today?”

Me: “Uh, the usual?”

Hadn’t seen her for several weeks during my busy vacation. Thus, we had to go over pages and pages of these blog entry days since I’ve seen her last. Didn’t even finish that! Had way too many days to discuss. Try Again Next Week.

Ok. Ok. Ok…. Now I am going to explain the MOST IMPORTANT THING about Mondays. My lunch at WHOLE FOODS.

The Foodies….

  • HSH California Quinoa. Tasty. Lots of tiny…. dots of something? These are with Almond Slices, Raisins, Coconut Flakes, Mango… few others… oh, and Cilantro. WAIT WAIT. The FIRST one is Red Quinoa. Ah….
  • Artichoke Salad. This is good too. Lets see… Umm, oh, the first ingredient is Artichoke Hearts. That is true. Red Onion… Red Pepper, Green Pepper, Yellow Pepper (Never knew there were so many color peppers). Sea Salt. That’s important. I love the flavor of Sea Salt over the flavor of regular Salt. (no, I’m not joking on that one…) 🙂
  • Verba Mate Drink. This whole thing is…. Guayaki Brand Verba Mate – Enlighten Mint. Might have been a bit better if I can ever remember to “shake” these drinks before opening the cans! That’s what they always say on the back. I just want to drink them to drink, and I just don’t read. Hmmm….

Welp, there is always “next week” and we’ll see what is decided that we are eating then.
