military



I had to call multiple people to arrange my EEG. I feel an urgency that they don't. I need to know what is going on with my "TIA" or stroke. Being active duty Navy and a Iraq and Afghanistan veteran, I don't feel I have a value anymore for my service. I watched something tonight, a documentary on a Marine. I shoudn't have watched it. Most times I don't have a problem with my PTSD, but watching that, brings back terrible memories of both places and bumms me out. I'm proud to have served, but the scary thing is I would go back today if they would let me. I don't feel right not being there when my brothers and sisters(fellow military members) are still there.

Movie with the wife

dizzy



My wife and I went to our first 3D movie today. MIB III. It was good, but some of the 3D effects made me dizzy. When we left the movie, I felt a little more dizzy than yesterday. I think some of the motions of the movie did this to me. I enjoy "simulator" amusment rides like "back to the future" and "spiderman". I worry that this stroke has also stoped me from doing those rides anymore, let alone real rollercoaster rides. With my balance off, those types of rides really feel like they're going to mess with me.

hard



Having a very hard time remembering what I ate the previous day, or the day before that. Doing this food Diary has made me realize that my stroke has damaged my short term memory, as far as what I did the very last day. I will pay more attention and see what other things as far as memories go. Not good.
