    THERE'S A SEQUEL. A FUCKING SEQUEL.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    They said I should look into taking off the bandage a couple of days after surgery. Of course I knew there was a fucking scar waiting for me. Six days later, found it had come off in my sleep. Yep, that really is a scar from around the middle of my ear to the top of my head. Perhaps if I continue losing weight it won't look too bad when my fat fucking head starts growing hair again!

    For the time being I'm cosplaying as Frankenstein's monster!

    It's been around eight days since my operation and I've been home for close to four days now.

    It's been better than I expected. I'm starting to getting used to my changes... changes that for the most part I can't complain about.

    It's funny. I find that it's a common belief amongst Christians in the United States and the United Kingdom that all brain surgery is a lobotomy, and that when I signed my surgery consent form, I must have been signing my life away. On the contrary, that old-fashioned way of thinking is certainly outdated, and science has come such a long way over the past several decades. Unlike lobotomy which targets the frontal lobe to correct personality defects, there are many other kinds of brain surgeries for different brain parts for entirely different reasons.

    After such a major surgery I do need rest, but I'm otherwise doing pretty good. I'm glad everyone seems to be doing great here.

    What? Where the hell did you hear this from? I've been going to church for 25 years and I've never met someone who thinks this or is against brain surgery, is this from a satire Twitter account or something that makes Chemtrail memes? Even in the backwater Baptist churches i've been to in Texas and Kansas, people aren't against or confused by modern medicine...this sounds like an article from the latest issue of Fedora Tipper magazine, sponsored by Reddit.

    Is there actually a group of people who thinks distinct surgical procedures are all the same procedure? That being said, I've had surgery 3 or 4 times and the one time when the guy gave me the consent form he literally said to me "this covers us in case you die". I was 17 so I don't even know why he gave me the form and not my parents?? The whole thing seems sketchy, looking back on it. I was in the hospital for 3 days or so afterward and the jello they have there was top-notch. A week after I checked out I got a review form in the mail where I could offer feedback/comments. I had this nurse-in-training I really liked named Karen, so I wrote "Nurse Karen is a fox, give her a raise."

    I never heard of or met anyone yet, who is holding this kind of believe. There are people who believe you can sell your soul to the devil, but by signing up for a brain surgery?
    Nah.

    Yeah, of course I've heard that one as well. I had a professor in my 2nd year of college who refused to sign any document in red ink, because that's what the devil uses. He advised us to take the same precautions, but didn't push us.
    One day he disappeared from being our professor and was replaced...as it turns out, he assaulted (not sexually, but violently) a student in the gym's locker room?? He never made a religious statement aside from that one about the red ink, which in conjunction with the out of character assault leads me to believe that he was schizo rather than a zealot. It's a shame, he was really decent at teaching marketing and had worked for IBM in the past so his credentials were sky-high.

    I have a brother who was very into this topic when he was younger. Watched all kinds of movies about exorcism.
    he later developed a mental illnes called "psychotic schizophrenia". He suffers now for over ten years on it whithout a cure being in sight.
    We once took him on a vacation with us where he got an mental breakdown and collapsed. Before that, he runned away from us, stating that demons are chasing him and asked random people in panic where the next church might be.

    I have also another acquaintance with the same mental illness in poland. We once encountered him where hes stated that a dragon is chasing him.

    You've taken what I said out of context. I was referring to a handful of people I've talked to who met the mentioned criteria who thought brain surgery was all on the frontal lobe, and were also mistaken about related information. Medical forms having something to do with religion? Lol, not as far as I know.

    I probably shouldn't let this derail further.

    Well, I must have misunderstood something then.
    I did not intended to provoke you, so sorry for that, in case I did.
