Further exploration of my new computer led to the discovery that my computer can take crazy pictures. Here is a supposedly comic-book-style picture of me.
How is it possible that Christmas is in less than three weeks? Not only have I not started Christmas shopping, but I haven't even thought about Christmas shopping... I usually do a lot of Christmas baking, but I haven't started that either. Oh dear. I haven't spent Christmas with my family since my second year in graduate school, three years ago now... That was the Christmas I found out about my brain tumor. It wasn't really a happy time, and my family and I didn't get along so well that year. I ended up on an Amtrak from Chicago to Boston on New Year's eve, terrified and alone. I had my first MRI on January 2nd. The next year I didn't really feel well enough to travel over the holidays. Last year I had plans to go and then I just didn't. I have been home a couple times in the last few years, but never for Christmas. This year I am going home for the holidays. I found out yesterday that I have to increase my medication again. I think I am going to do it while I am at home. I hate doing these increases because they make me feel so shitty. But really I am lucky -- this is the first time I have had to increase in more than two years now. Wish me luck...
