Journal entry by Connie Dyment

Well, today is November 12, 2019. My journey started in another city, about 10 years ago, maybe even longer. So many people have told me to start a journal and share my story as my story, it isn't the normal!

This first entry will be about today. Today I am sitting here wondering if I really want to do this. I am the furthest thing from being a writer. I am more of a talker so video is more my thing, but, I have aged so much in the past 4 years on my journey that I no longer like what I see in the mirror, so I definitely don't want to share it with the world to see. Yes, I know, if you didn't know me, I would look fine!

Today has been 15 days since I finally got the Gamma knife to hopefully stop my regrowth from growing more. It's snowing outside, but thankfully it's not overly cold out! I have a pretty wicked headache today too. It's not my normal headache that I have with the weather changes. It's a slow you right down headache.

Gamma knife? Regrowth? Connie, please explain!! I will, but not today. Tomorrow I will start with the beginning of my Acoustic Neuroma Journey and gradually lead up to today and why my journey has been a struggle, why I am the way I am and why I am pro radiation over surgery for smaller acoustic neuroma's.

Until then, here is a picture of me on October 28, 2019, rocking my "Crown" that I fought so hard to get!
