    Appreciate you sharing that.

    At the time I considered surgery I was also struggling, trying to complete grad school but facing the frequent personal set-backs. Fortunately, in my early 30's my condition got under control as long as I took medication so I was kind of a late bloomer.

    MRI has come a long way and is an incredible diagnostic tool. When I was considering surgery they used X-ray and it was necessarily limited. I had an MRI before going off meds and found it really fascinating - the ultimate selfie! My wife poured over the image slices like she was a brain surgeon, it was really funny. "Find anything?" said I. No further comment.

    I hope your cure is permanent, life can be good.

    No one is coming to save us, the future is in our hands.

      I taught science on a stage for about ten years.  I had a particular show that was about illusions.  It was great to put the films up so the audience could see them.  Just to prove it was there...
