Head Spinning and Other Matters
Well, I haven't much been in the mood to blog. I wouldn't say it's Writer's Block, cause goodness knows I've got plenty of potential posts swimming around in my head, and with the new internet at home (yay!) I've been able to upload hundreds of photos. I just really haven't been in the mood to write anything. I'm sure part of this is due to my head being out of sorts.
I mentioned the other day that yes, I suffer from vertigo and supposedly migraines too. I'm not so convinced on the migraines, but the vertigo is hard to miss. I experienced my first episode in fall of 2007, when I tried to sit up out of bed and just fell back over. That time, it was a full blown spinning mess, which left me so nauseous I eventually did have to puke. I have an episode every now and then, usually not full blown, but just an "out of sorts" feeling. My physician seems to think that I get migraines, and the migraine and the vertigo feed of each other. He also seemed totally fine with the fact that I get vertigo. Me, on the other hand, wants to know the cause. Because really, there has got to be a cause. I have been fighting it off all week, and everyday after work have come home and just hid out, because I feel normal when I'm not moving, but once I move at all, my head just spins around. Yesterday, I finally stayed home sick, because I had not even cooked dinner once this week, and was hoping I could sleep it off. By the evening I felt much better, and actually cooked dinner and did the dishes, but today I'm still feeling "off" for lack of a better word.
In the meantime, the dogs keep trying to kill my precious rose bushes, which by the way are doing very well in their new locations. Bella has fungus growing all over her and needs a medicated bath very badly. Maria has decided that the itchies are back (have I ever told you about her allergies?) and needs her oatmeal bath. My floors need to be cleaned before things start growing and more rain is coming tomorrow. Which means nothing will get done.
Well, this turned into a pretty much pointless post, but oh well, I took the effort to write it, so I'll just click "Publish Post" now...
