I had my EEG this morning. It was about what I expected. I won’t know anything until a doctor has time to review it which I figure will be a week or so. They didn’t actually tell me anything concrete. The techs were really nice, though. When I told him what I was in there for he said that those types of episodes were common in children and they tended to grow out of them. I said I started getting them much later in life, but he said it was still possible I could grow out of them. With the caveat that he’s not a doctor, of course. Generally, no one has seemed overly concerned by any of my symptoms. That helps me feel a little better. I definitely relaxed after the procedure. I could fall asleep right now with no problems. It never ceases to amaze me how much stress I carry around until I let it go and relax a bit. There’s a hot bath and a Lush face mask in my future tonight. After, my dad bought me breakfast. Best dad ever. 😀 Then I washed the goo out of my hair and headed to work.
I’ve been trying to study for my CFA and my brain is rejecting it hardcore. Firstly, I need a financial calculator and don’t have one. That leaves me just reading formula after formula and not being able to apply them. I learn best by doing things. I’ll read something to get the theory, but I really need to do it to be able to learn it. Allegedly Target sells financial calculators, so I can get one after work. Then maybe it’ll be easier to study when I can actually work the problems instead of just reading them. It’s still on the level of basic algebra, so it’s nothing that’s out of my league yet. I just need to be able to actually do it so it’s not going in one ear and out the other. I’m sure the fact that I’m totally exhausted isn’t helping the situation. I may not even need my relaxation CD tonight to get to sleep. And it’s supposed to storm off and on all night. That will keep me asleep. On that note, time to walk around a bit and then try to study some more.
