Brother update:

My brother got started on another course of chemo. Couldn't talk to him, but my father has claimed that he seemed unusually chipper recently. It's quite odd, to be honest. Not that he was ever sombre, but it's not like him to be openly happy about most things. His childhood echolalia has also returned which is weird. I think he was completely over it around the time when he was thirteen. I don't know what to think about it, just hope that's not some sort of brain damage. Though I don't know if side effects of drugs or chemo are any better at this point.

Personal update:

The headaches that I've told you about two or three weeks ago are continuing to be a thing. Still as idiopathic as they were back then, despite my additional appointment with a neurologist. Though, I do know what should cause me headaches. Ever since I was released from the hospital I was asked to take part in IQ tests by seven different people for some reason. From my university's psychology faculty, some psychiatrist at the teaching hospital where I was initially tested, and a few other places that I didn't even know existed. No-one responded to my question about why they suddenly want to get me tested, which is just rude at this point. Plus I don't recall giving a consent to share my results or personal information, which just pisses me off at this point.

Anyway, why am I talking about it now if this was the case for about a month at this point? Ah, that's because today some guy has sent me a request that was just insulting. Get this: they pester me to go all the way to the other side of Warsaw, waste probably something close to three or four hours of my life on this thing (not even counting the commute) and they will even graciously not make me pay for it.
