How to gamble $600

Well hellooooooo stimulus check. :) I've decided to put it away toward paying for the specialized SPECT imagining brain scan that I have been meaning to get to properly diagnose and treat my brain disability. I haven't been able to part with my earned or saved money for the $3,500 brain scan for fear of losing it. There is no guarantee that the scan can properly diagnose me. Or if it does, there is no guarantee that whatever prevents me forming or having access to long and short term memories or from focusing on anything for more than 2 minutes, is actually treatable by any medication. And if that turns out to be the case, I couldn't live with the idea of flushing over three thousand dollars of my own money down the toilet to find out that there's no hope of having a normal life. However, I have no problem blowing unexpected income on such a procedure because it's okay to gamble money you weren't expecting to have anyway. And this tax refund definitely qualifies as unexpected income.

If I can get my schedule in order, I'd like to try and get the brain scan before the end of the year. If they give me a copy, I promise to post pictures of my brain on my LJ. :)
