Just a Quick Update…

Just a quick update to the blog I posted last week titled “Would Love To Hear Your Thoughts” after meeting with my Psychiatrist (see link below in case you missed it).

I received a call this afternoon from the Psychiatrist’s office who is conducting the DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) clinical study (as mentioned in my blog) to schedule me in for a consult with the Doctor/ Collegues of my Psychiatrist who are heading the research.

My appointment is set for early next week.

Upon an initial discussion with my Psychiatrist late last week about my potential participation in this study his first thoughts were that I probably had some time to think it over as he didn’t expect I’d hear anything from the clinic until early January, but it looks like they ain’t wasting any time!

I know that this is only just a preliminary consultation to discuss what my participation in the study will look like for me and to gather more information as well. It will also likely be one of several steps taken before I’d even be approved (or not approved) for the study itself (from personal experience!). I’m not sure how mentally or physically ready I am for all this right now but I guess in the meantime I better start preparing my list of questions for next week. I know one thing is for certain, there are sure to be lots!
