What's the deal...  I have never lost a game here in backgammon and I have never won a game here.  I can't even use the doubling cube...  What's up with that!!!

In the winter of 2018, I fell twice and each fall was preceded by my fainting.  But when I was in the emergency room on the first fall, I neglected to tell the treating doctor that I had passed out.  I didn't remember than I had been unconscious until that evening, and realized that I had crossed a minor street to get to my mailbox.  So they did an MRI 3 days later, which showed nothing.  I developed vertigo a day or two after than and began stuttering.  I went to a neurologist, who could find nothing other than possibly some brain imjury due to the hard falls, and she felt on a follow-up visit that I was slowly recovering from the brain injury.  It is now 2020, and I still have verbal problems, but not as severe as stuttering.  I can't remember simple, everyday vocabulary, but have an extensive vocabulary and retained the memory of my more complex vocabulary.  I found that playing solitaire is something my brain remembers very well, and it is slowly improving my memory, as well as my card skills.  My verbal problems may be complicated by something else I am suffering, but my memory is returning.  I also do crosswords and read extensively.

Yes! I love how you've written this out. Ballistic is a good way to get out a little aggression!

The tomboy in me likes Ballistic because it's so fast-moving, with all those little balls bouncing around like an old pinball machine. Even though my Ballistic scores sink, I loooooooove that crashing sound when I lose all the tiles bite the dust. Muhahaha!
