Scalp pain returned last night briefly and the last two weeks I’ve had dizziness when moving my head.
I had some walking issues earlier this week, almost tripped over my legs again in the living room.

According to my neurologist who I saw earlier last month, I have something called parasthesias, transient right leg weakness and slight dysmetria.
In October, my cat Stella turned 19. She’s helped me recover through four shunt revision surgeries (2009-2014) and multiple brain injuries in 2014.
|11/2/19 – Right side of head scar from shunt
revision surgery in May 2014
This weekend, someone asked me about the scar on the side of my head. Most of the time it can’t be seen, it’s only noticeable when I get a haircut. I don’t mind talking about my brain injuries sometimes, it is usually a good 30 to 45 minute story from start to finish. However, yesterday, I chose the shorter version of the story explaining I had had surgery it was long story. Wherein the woman replied, ‘You’re going to be okay right?” and of course, I said, ‘Yes, I think I will be”
What a nice random encounter to have with someone on a cold and windy day. A few days ago, the wind in the evening was bothering my forehead.
My shunt is behaving since then…. No pain for a week already, which is a small miracle in itself.
