Reasons to study neurology #583

When I'm medicated, I'm a bit verbally fucked. I lose words, lose trains of thought. Frankly, there are times I sound like an idiot, especially in the first two to four hours after taking my meds.

But I can write just fine.

No pause, no search for words. Just flowing.

Clearly, the writerbrain is a completely different part of the brain from the verbal.

It frustrates me that the books I want are med school textbooks (DocOrion did repeatedly say that he could drop me into a third-year neurology clerkship seamlessly, based on my current level of knowledge and research) and are therefore ludicrously expensive.

Yes, I want to go back to school.

No, I don't yet have a degree - I have a couple of years of night school, is what I have. And you can't test out of getting your bachelor's degree. So in order to get to the level of education that I'm already up to, I'd need years of spending lots of money to be bored off my ass with stuff I already know.

*sigh*

Money.

Money sucks.

He also tried repeatedly to talk me into med school. "As long as I don't have to see any patients," I said. Research, I could do. I'd like to do research.

Yes, this has been on my mind for a while.
