Explanations, Requests, and the Basics of Hospitalization: Part 1

Hello Everyone.
It's been a while again, but this is an important post.
Today is a day that I have both looked forward to and dreaded...a day that could signify a great step forward in my healing, or just a step backwards in terms of finances and manpower. I'd like to think that it's the former.

You see, today, Monday, is the day that I am to be hospitalized at Community Hospital North. It's the only hospital that allows Dr. Arbuck, a pain specialist, psychologist, and doctor, to conduct specialized treatments, medication detox and physical and mental turnarounds for patients with chronic pain. Now, while I have chronic pain, that is not my only condition. Pain is just a symptom of numerous diseases and issues, some of which are circulatory and autonomic imbalances and misfires; nervous system hyperactivity and hypersensitivity (i.e. fibromyalgia); lead poisoning; blood toxicity; chemical imbalances; a compromised immune system; a poisoned digestive system, kidneys, gallbladder, and liver; and so on. Sadly, Dr. Arbuck now thinks that there is a chance that I have a disease involving increased inter-cranial pressure, meaning there is too much pressure being exerted on my brain. This could be the cause of much of my pain as well. So, once I'm out of the hospital this round, I'm going to get a lumbar puncture, more blood tests, and an ultrasound of my abdominal and pelvic areas to see if there are any corresponding cysts. Lucky me, huh? *long sigh*
But that's all after the fact.
