Since yesterday, I began noticing a very strange phenomena. When I look at a moving object, I see a ghost image trailing it. I looked up this phenomenon and it's called palinopsia and it usually indicates a lesion in the back part of the brain. Well, I've been having symptoms of a brain tumor for more than a month now, but this new phenomena has left me completely paralyzed. I'm seeing a neurologist on Monday, but I'm not sure how long I can last before I completely lose my mind. The thought of dying of cancer is one thing, but the thought of dying from a brain tumor has to be the worst. As they progress, the tumors rob you of everything that makes you YOU. Both my parents could care less about my concerns and that makes the isolation all the worse. I pray that when I see the neurologist on Monday, I can get a CT scan or MRI as soon as possible. The fact that palinopsia is a dead-on sign of a brain tumor has a given me anxiety on a level I have never experienced before. I'm starting my last semester of college at the end of this month, and if I can't get a definitive answer on what's causing my symptoms, I don't know how I'll be able to function. Anyways, I apologize for the long rant. Sometimes writing about my fears helps me cope.
