I am now on day three since being diagnosed with a benign brain tumour.

While my biggest problem is a dreadful headache in the back of my head (an unusual place for a headache for me) which makes it hard for me to lie comfortably in bed, my newest problem has been the sneaking feeling that I am wearing a hat.

I feel that it is essential to point out that I am not, in fact, wearing a hat, but it is something my hands go to verify frequently. Perhaps this is due to fluid in my brain or the tumour pushing on things in a new way? I will have to ask them this when I next see a doctor. Until then, I will soldier on, calm in the knowledge that my head is hat-free.
