Vp Shunt malfunction: talking like a robot. 

Today was a new symptom. Today’s symptom was sounding like a robot.  I was having a conversation with someone and I was literally talking like a t.v. robot.  I was putting spaces in between each word. It was kind of amusing and it took every ounce of energy and concetration to carry a conversation which made my head hurt. It literally hurt to think. 

I’ve also been crying because not of loneliness but because,  I feel alienated…and scared because I have to go through these symptoms by myself. It’s scary to know I may have temperary blindness or possibly lapsing into a coma while I’m knapping. 

I step outside everyday so I don’t become claustrophobic. It’s hot here in Texas right now but I need fresh air and sunlight.

I’m going to try to draw or paint just to keep my mind busy. It’s going to be a long week.

Vp shunt: stress and anxiety

Today was a good day… I guess. The headaches weren’t as strong or bad as they usual. I didn’t sleep as much and I actually ate without feeling nauseous. Loud sounds and other such distractions intensify the pain of my headache. I went outside for a bit to see if I could handle it. It was hot. It was okay. I’m trying to keep my stress level down. I really need to stay off the Facebook. That has a lot of stressful information. I’m going to try to go out tomorrow for a bit to get out of my confines. Let see how I do.
