I've officially figured out why I am a ramblin' Jane!!!!! This last visit to see my neurologist wasn't only for my many, many, mighty head, neck, and full spinal pain injections, but also for a memory test. It was to take an hour, and at an hour and a half, Dr. G. had the gal giving me the test "pause" it, so he could go ahead and do my injections. He'd been checking on me without me realizing that he was paying close attention to my body language while testing. He let me know he could tell just sitting at the computer was truly painful, within the first 20 minutes of having been there.
Bless his heart, he rang on Sunday to let me know the test results showed that I'd had ADD prior to my accident, but following the head trauma, and now with the chronic pain added, it has been driven into what is called Advanced ADD. Guess there's no fix for this as an adult, other than to continue working on my pain, as well as depression. The sweet part is there were no signs of early demensia, or Alzheimers (am sure both of those are butchered where spelling is concerned, and now I know why I don't have the patience to LOOK UP THE CORRECTIONS)!!!! LOL
Sooooo.....Ramblin' Jane with every blog bouncing from here to there, back again, then across the room, into outer space, on to MARS, around the moon a few times, AND THEN.... WAHHH-LAHHHH~ RIGHT INTO YOUR VERY OWN HOME, ON YOUR VERYYY OWN COMPUTER, BEFORE YOUR VERY OWN EYES...isn't due to "CREATIVITY A'TALL!!!! It's because I've scrambled my brain with that fall in 2010!!! Much like EXTRA SCRAMBLED EGGS!!!
Truly so, something I've heard of is ADD, now ADVANCED ADD, I'D HAVE CONSIDERED "MADE UP." Guess it's THE REAL MC'COY.
Did I know I had ADD~prior to this memory test???? Nope. We'd joked about it through the years, as I manage to get 1/3 of a job done in one room, then start another project, only to leave it in disaray, because I'm flustered and am not sure what to do next with it, so off I go....moving on to another. This has been my life~my whole life. Mum used to just about pull her hair out, saying I exhausted her so. Dad would put me to work graining animals at their zoo, knowing it would take me allllllllll morning, rather than 45 minutes, because I'd be talking and playing with others along the way. Yesss truly so, from early childhood through my teen years.
Mum has always described me as the 1 of her 3 children who caused her more grief, headaches, worry, THE WORKS, BUT NOT SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, as she left DAD TO NIGHT DUTY. lol That was a hoot! My curfew in highschool was 11:30 if I remember right, he'd be up for his soon to be midnight snack when I'd be getting home. Seems he always forgot what night of the week it was, as he dressed "VERY LIGHT" FOR BED~
!!! When I'd come bopping in, he'd be pulling the fridge door shut on the front of his naked body, with his hiney on the top shelf of the fridge!!! LOL LOL LOL Clearing his throat a time or two, and looking down, I'd just giggle wishing him sweet dreams when everything thawed out!!!! lol With that he'd give me a smirk that so said, "Darn, I'M BUSTED AGAIN!!!!" Giggling I am!!!
Anyhoo~thought I'd update everybody at once about my tests results. Heavens my husband doesn't even know yet. He was in such a hurry to get out of here yesterday morning to head back to Topeka, I hardly remember him saying goodbye. Each visit home he leaves earlier and earlier. His loss I guess. We girls here always have a good time, even if we are just having chit chat girl talk laying on my bed.
Sending My Love To Allllllll~
