To start out, the neurology appointment went about as I expected - the doctor is kind of mystified but there are no signs that this is anything potentially fatal. She's suggested an herbal remedy and if that doesn't work then come back and we can try an allopathic medication, though I want to wait until I am done with selling the condo and getting to Seattle before I do because one of the primary side effects of the med is grogginess and tiredness, so I do not need that right now. She was very thorough in her questions and exam and does not feel that an MRI or anything of the sort is needed as I'm not showing any symptoms of anything that would indicate it at the moment. She spent some time attempting to classify my headaches ("maybe it's not a migraine, classifications have changed in the past several years"), but none of their categories actually fit, so she decided okay, it's a complex migraine and some of my symptoms are anomalous, so maybe dizziness is actually part of it, who can tell.

After we were done, I talked to her about the phone call yesterday and she said they are supposed to ask, but I told her that there was a really heavy-handed attempt to make me take the schedule change and then the guy didn't get back to me. She said, "yeah, I know exactly who you're talking about" and said she'd have some words with him. It sounded like maybe they had received complaints about this guy before, so maybe some attitude adjustment will be forthcoming.

I got done with the appointment in time to actually get to my group. I wasn't there for the last session as I was supposed to be on my road trip. I missed the group and apparently they really missed me because they all cheered when I walked in the door. Definitely good for my ego!

After the VA, [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson and I went over to Travelers, where I saw about half a dozen of my friends, including [livejournal.com profile] nathan_fhtagn, who was dashing in for some chai to go. We talked for a couple of minutes and he said that when I get to Seattle, if I need rides anywhere to give him a call and he might be able to take me places, so that was really sweet of him and I will possibly take him up on it if I need to get places I can't go by bus.

One of the gals who runs the Esoteric Book Conference was there - she'd said she had heard ripples in the community that I was leaving, then a second set of ripples about "OMG Erynn is selling her entire library." Of course, I said I wasn't selling the whole thing, just a good chunk of it. She wanted me to take it over to Magus because they give pretty good money (and one of the other EBC people works there); I said I was taking it over to Mary in West Seattle and she said that Mary paid pretty well too, so we shall see what we shall see. It was interesting to see the reactions of people to my situation.

After chai and food at Travelers, we went over to Magnolia for a Bach lute concert, which was really quite lovely and very enjoyable. Sadly, the musician hadn't brought any cds of his work to sell, which I found very surprising. The concert was about two hours, then we headed home. I stopped by at [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor's briefly then walked back to my place from there. All in all it was a really good day. Weather was pretty good for the most part, lots of friends seen and talked to, good food, and some excellent music. How much better does it get?
