I am a Brain Aneurysm Surviror. I had brain surgery in March 2007 for a bulging of a blood vessel on the optical nerve of my right eye. The neurosurgeon placed a titanium clip on the vessel to "choke off" the bulge. Yes, the clip is still in my brain.
However, since my surgery, I've lost my short-term memory and my job of 17 years.
Since my surgery, I've been unable to retain what I read, so I don't read novels anymore. I was a HUGE sci-fi fan! I'm trying to get into poetry but it's been difficult retaining it. Although there have been slow improvements lately.
Hope I remember that I posted this. I'm "new" to the Ipernity site so bear with me if I don't post for a long time.
