Okay, so I'm getting ready to go to my 3rd neurological-type exam in two years, and I can't even quite get someone to give me a straight answer as to why. They kind of talk down to me, as if because they're Ph.D people I wouldn't be able to understand anything, so its best I just do what they say. Its as if its not my own life, kind of like being a kid when they tell your parents why but not you, but I'm on my own now so the only person they are doing this through is me. I'm not about to refuse and be labeled "resistant to treatment" but I am getting a bit curious, to put it mildly, as to what exactly they're looking for. I know I may seem a bit strange to some, but I just went outside during Marathon Monday in Boston (so there is a lot of excitement at the moment) and saw a group of people in red underpants on skateboards wearing red capes going down a side street and yelling, two guys from a frat dressed in nothing but big bucket costumes, and a guy trying to run in a large chicken suit on the last mile of the marathon route (I'm assuming he didn't run the entire thing that way). How is it that I'M the strange one? More to the point, have any of your kids had multiple neuro/other exams and do you know what they may be looking for?

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
