Sleep study

well I met with the nurologist today and he had decided for me to go to two sleep studies. However those can't be scheduled until the begining of December. So I  have those appointments. My PCP's office called today to tell me I have a dietician consult this Friday in Clarksville. I also scheduled my surgeon appointment for Nov 6. My insurance has a program where if you need transportation they will provide it for you and since my car is doing good to get around town and Clarksville is 3 hrs from me I have decided to use this service. However my PCP's office and I have gone around and around to get this scheduled hopefully my PCP's office is able to get this all straightened out tomorrow.

Psych Evaluation

well, the results are in and Im not crazy. I have evidently one underlying problem that stemed from my childhood. Which I will be working on. Also I have a verbal IQ of 106 and a performance IQ of 94 which gives me an overall IQ of 100 which is average. The psychologist has given the go ahead for the surgery. I now have an appointment with a nurologist. So I can get the sleep study out of the way.

Psych Tests

Ok I did my Psych Tests yesterday and let me tell you that was an interesting experience. I got to play with blocks, imagine things in ink blots, make up a story for a picture, and a few other unusual things :) All I have left are my sleep study and my dietician consult. My PCP's nurse said she would be getting back with me at the end of the week on that. *crossing fingers*
