I am writing this while I am still waiting for the doctor to finish whatever hole he is on and then call me. I will schedule it to post on Wednesday, but something I found funny just happened and I will never remember it a whole day from now.
Beth came home for lunch and left her phone here. It just rang (buzzed) and I got excited. It must be the doctor calling her phone since he did not get my message this morning to call our home number instead of Beth's cell. I answered to hear the dude on the other end ask, "Mike?" I hesitated. As if there were any other explanation than that this was a wrong number. Sure, I had answered Beth's phone, but she does not go by or look like a "Mike". I am not "Mike". I am not like Mike. I am not currently miked. He did not mean to say Steve but pronounced it "Mike".
I have a brother Mike, so perhaps dude was calling Beth in a city 100 miles away to find my brother?
Okay, you're with stupid. Dude on the phone figured out he had the wrong number before I could say anything. I guess "Mike's" normal response when he answers the phone is not dead silence.
I have heard from the doctor and he has said that there is nothing to worry about so far. I do not have any brain lesions, nor does he think I have Multiple Sclerosis. My blood work is normal, and there are a couple of white spots on my MRI that he will have a neurologist look at. The radiologist thinks there are nothing, so we are just going for a second opinion. Sure, there has been no explanation for what my ears feel like, but I am going to try a couple things. One is less salt. Okay, I can do that. Another is less caffeine. Not really looking forward to that, nor are my employees. Finally, less stress. I am going to have to find a good stress release, but the search starts tomorrow.
What are some good stress relievers that you know of? Can you think of any for me? Let's see what happens.
