- He's have a few cat scans, all of which have been clear. It's good that there is nothing on his brain but the doctors are stumped as to what to do for hie head aches.
- Boxtox injections, he had these before and they really helped - they did these today, they wanted to try other things that would alleviate more pain but, like I said they are stumped.
- Acupuncture, they even left to needles in his ears for a weekend to try to help with his pain.
- Some electronic pain blocker thing (I have no idea what it's actually called) but it attaches to the part of your body that's in pain and sends signals to your brain to tell your brain to make the pain stop. I think that's how it works - obviously I am a scientist with these explanations.
- Yoga for stress (which I think is great)
- Mask painting, yea like arts and crafts. I can see it helping other people but not Doc - he said he did it but thought it was a huge joke (for him, he saw one of the guys there really benefit but that was mostly a PTSD thing).
- Sleep study with a sleep apnea diagnosis, he has his Darth Vader mask now so that will be something to get used to for me when he gets home.
- Glasses to wear in crowds and driving - I forget why it works but they are tinted and should help with anxiety in crowds.
- Bluetooth hearing aides with a microphone, I will wear the microphone and he will be able to hear me when we are out, this is for big things like stadiums as well as everyday times like shopping. He gets overstimulated and confused when there is too much background noise.
- Group therapy - he may or may not have ripped the therapist a new one when he compared him to a NFL catcher having a mental block when trying to catch a ball...
This weekend he is traveling home again and his brother in law is getting them Patriots tickets, he should be really excited but instead he's having anxiety about the crowd and the noise.
I wish I could go back to the days when I bitched about him not empty the dishwasher.
