Vertigo ~ what is it? how does it effect my daily life?

My first bout with this awful feeling of loss of balance was in April of 2016.  I basically stood up from my couch on Sunday evening and got extremely dizzy and nauseated.  Then, I proceeded to fall.  I missed work for almost three weeks.  It lasted about 10 weeks before I felt like myself.  I would not wish this upon my worst enemy.

During this time my husband had to help me take a shower for fear that I was going to fall right through the shower doors.  How helpless I felt, but thank you for the amazing man that I married.

I went to the doctors office and they could not figure out how it came about.  They prescribed me predizone, antidizzy meds and whatever else.  I also had a MRI on my brain to make sure there was no issues there.  Came back good.

Well, April of this year, 2017, I got it again.  I missed a week of work this time and it lasted about two weeks.  Whew!!!!!  I am not back to work.  Thank goodness.

Here are a few things for you to link to if you would like more information.  I can only explain how I felt, but maybe these articles will help others.

I wish you all the best and Stay Gold!!!!!

Cancer, what a horrible word. April 29, 2013


What is there to say about this life threatening word?  I hate it.  It has taken so many people I love away.

Cancer: An abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, in some cases, to metastasize (spread).

So, now here is a little story.   I will not use her name to protect her privacy.  I have a friend and she is a beautiful, spontaneous and outgoing person.  We have had our ups and downs, but we are only on ups now.  I love this woman and I only want whats best for her.  Recently, she was diagnosed with CML: Chronic myelogenous leukemia, which is also known as chronic myeloid leukemia and chronic myelocytic leukemia and some form of kidney cancer.   She is a very strong woman and I know she is hating the fact that she needs to depend on others.  But she is taking it in stride.

A few weeks ago there was a benefit to help her out with expenses and it turned out rather well.  Several bands donated their time and played awesome.  Businesses donated items or gift certificates.  Others donated handmade items or their time.  All these items were raffles off and it was amazing.

It is so wonderful to see people pull together for someone they know and don’t know.  I hope everybody says a little prayer for all those out there with this dreaded disease, whether you know them or not.  I will pray for them all as well.

 

 

Elizabeth Taylor Will be Missed March 23, 2011


Oh, what a sad thing to wake up to.  I thought she was an outstanding actress and have seen almost all of her movies.  Such a tragedy but I am glad she is not suffering any longer.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all her friends and family.  God Bless then all.

Being Sick December 18, 2010


I hate this feeling of being sick. Not sleeping well, tossing and turning. I absolutely feel like I am going to die.

Morgan is sick also, well she is on the last leg of it. I know she gave it to me. Darn child.

As of eight days ago, I have had a headache and it does not seem to want to go away. Then two days ago I started having a raspy throat and hard time swallowing. As of yesterday I have felt seriously like death warmed over.

This will go away. Lots of rest and liquids.
