Right Parietal

My name is Katie D and I was born on Friday the 13th at midnight. When I was a baby I didn't like to be held. I was social but didn't like to be touched. I was born premature. My mom went bowling when she was pregnant and fell down the ally one time. Then I fell out of my car seat when I was 2 months old. I'm 5'4" I have an Arachnoid Cyst located in between the temporal and parterial lobes on the right side of my brain. We think my cyst is 2 cm long and 4 cm wide. I am left handed and I am 21 years old and was diagnosed when I was 17.

My surgery was a year ago. The surgery took away the pressure I had felt. I had experienced vertigo and loss of concentration . After surgery I felt very weak and depressed and the doctor said this was expected and it would pass. Which is good because I'm a very on the go kinda person. I needed to get on with my life. After awhile I felt good. Went back to work .
Grateful it wasn't cancer.

Now I feel tired and I feel some pressure on the right side of my head. My temper gets the best of me at work lately and this is not me. I have a shunt on that side. I'm afraid to go back to the doctor. I'd rather think its to be expected after a surgery .My concentration is off wack again. I hate feeling this tried all the time.
