Tyson's Ghost

The neurologist I'm to see for the migraines later this month sent me one of those scored tests they want to see when I show up where they ask a lot of questions. I think it's a bit odd to see medical people relying on scores for a diagnosis (although the DSM does have a certain amount of looseness that might suggest this), although maybe it's useful for insurance purposes and to explain things to patients. I was not surprised to find it tell me that the migraines are having a severe impact on my life (ranging from none through moderate to that). It would be amusing that after filling it out yesterday I got my first one after about a weeklong hiatus today, except getting them is never amusing. These damned things are doing well in the running for the worst thing in my life.

Earlier today, I discovered that my music player has always had the ability to intelligently scoot around inside long lists of song titles/artists/albums, and that because I generally don't read manuals anymore (except sometimes as a bathroom reader), I missed on it and was irritated by its absence.

All things considered, I'm in a good mood and as soon as the migraine fades a bit more, I'm hopefully going to be able to leave my office, go home, and take a walk, given recent upturns in our swiftly-tilting weather.
