Five-Hundred Word Challenge 851: Conversation at The Brain Centre

So yesterday I woke up in the morning as opposed to the afternoon and I felt rather heavy. I felt heavy in the head and heavy in the brain. It wasn’t the worst of feelings, but it certainly was not something I would describe as pleasant, as is the way that these things go on the odd occasion.

The feeling did not get worse or better, and instead lingered on throughout all of the morning. It was bothersome in its refusal to relent and so I made a decision that I felt would help to lead to the resolving of the issue and therefore allow me to go about the rest of my day.

I headed on down to the brain centre to try and work out what was going on and if they could remove the discomfort. There wasn’t much of a wait which was a good thing, I feel. It meant that I could try and find a solution sooner rather than later and therefore this mild discomfort would be alleviated without me having to spend too much time living with it beyond what I had already lived with up to that particular point of the day.

So I waited and then they called me in and I had to walk to the specific professional’s room that I was seeing and I overshot as I wasn’t paying attention, then walked into the wrong room and there wasn’t anyone in that particular room so I stepped out and then walked to the room of the professional that I had to see. They greeted me and I greeted them and then they asked what exactly was wrong.

“You see, professional-type person, I’m having this feeling of heaviness in my brain.

You’re having heaviness in your brain?

I am having heaviness in my brain.

Have you considered lightening the load a little?

What do you mean?

Well, you might have a heaviness due to adding too much weight into your headspace and therefore increasing the weight upon your brain. This causes issues where there is a sensation of heaviness in the brain.

Sensations, you say?

I do say sensations. However, that is beside the point. The point is that there is a heaviness in your brain.

Can you be a little lighter and more informative of the issue?

The issue is that you’ve a heavy load in there.

But you haven’t done any examinations. How do you know that?

I just happen to know.

Well, you certainly layer it on. I think what I need to do is lighten the load.

Have you tried that?

Not yet, no.

Then perhaps you should.

I just might. Thank you for your assistance.

Not a problem. Just one last thing before you go. Please sign this waiver so we can legally claim your brain later.

No thanks. I’ll just leave.”

And so I left, feeling disgruntled over what I’d experienced. It could have been worse, but I felt no closer to having a solution.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:17:05

This came from the idea I had, then forgot, then remembered again yesterday.

Didn’t think it would kind of centre around a conversation, but that’s what ended up happening.

Written at home.
