That's a weird shot, isn't it? I was trying to get a picture of us together when Sophie suddenly head-butt me really hard. It brought tears to my eyes, but it didn't seem to bother her. I suppose she has a high pain threshold what with all the goings on in her brain. My entire scalp is always so sensitive which, Dr. Jin tells me, is too much heat, and now I have a sore spot. Other than that, though, Sophie's had a decent day with no seizures to speak of, fewer tremors and jerks that I believe are withdrawal symptoms. Sometimes I put my hand on her right arm and gently squeeze it, and I swear I can feel an electric pulse running down her arm and into her hand. I wonder if she feels agitated by that, if it drives her crazy, if butting someone's head is a pain that distracts from a greater one.
