I just came back from the doctor. He told me I have a 4.6 cm chunk of brain missing. Oh, yes, don't worry about it he said you seem normal to me.

Go figure.

I can't seem to find reference to anyone who is walking around like this.

At least now I have a valid excuse the next time I forget to bring home bread and milk.

  • My husband is also missing a big chunk of his temporal lobe. I think it makes it harder for him to control his anger. The docs just say, "huh."

Went to ER by ambulance and also had PD respond because I am large sized strong male. Turns out both sides of brain and top of brain all have flat imaging. I have had anger issues but seems to be coming under control, I believe because of meditation. Also sometimes pronounce words in chunks like canada ca-na-dia.I knew something was wrong, no one ever said to follow up.
