My MRI came back clean last week. No new lesions. Of course, that was useful before, but now I’m more concerned with brain volume, which wasn’t measured by this year’s MRI technician.
I can tell you exactly the white matter I have lost. I have lost the neurons that allow me to spell the word “because”.
Somehow my hands have lost the ability to type the letters of “because” in the right sequence. It always comes out with the same two letters transposed.
I’ve never had trouble with this word befoer.
Looks like there’s a short in my “b followed by e” synapse.
I don’t have stellar typing, but it’s just so odd that my muscle memory has decided to fail on this particular word. It’s not the only word. I know to correct “form” to “from” every time I type that. Looks like I need to add “because” to the list of double-checks.
It might be because (did it again) I have begun to use “because” more often now that someone pointed out the distinction between “since” and “because” (again). I was using “since” exclusively, and now I’m just over-correcting.
Over-correcting doesn’t lead to auto-correction for some reason. Perhaps that’s all that has happened. Maybe auto-correct has been saving me up till now, but it’s sick of my lack of personal responsibility. Just because. Oh! I got it right this time!
