Spinning

Posted on: May 14, 2007

That’s what I’ve been doing for the past week and a half….spinning. Spinning and spinning and spinning. Isn’t Vertigo great?

The day before Zander’s birthday, I woke up to see the room spinning around me. Fun, but a little disconcerting. Once it stopped spinning, everything stayed still….until that night.

As soon as I went to bed, I started spinning again. Even with my eyes closed, I felt like I was on some type of sadistic amusement park ride. I didn’t get much sleep that night as I kept feeling like I was falling off the edge of the bed, which I was nowhere near.

The next morning, Zander’s birthday, I awoke to the now-familiar sight of the room spinning. Carlos and I quickly realized that I would not be able to take care of the on my own…he called in sick. So we spent Zander’s birthday all together as a family….and the room continued to spin.

That afternoon I went to the local walk-in clinic to find that I had Vertigo caused by Labyrinthitis….otherwise known as an inner ear infection. But doesn’t Labyrinthitis sound so much more exotic???

So for the past 10 days I’ve been spinning around the house…and unable to look at the computer screen without getting a wierd type of motion sickness. Hence my absence from the Blogosphere. But I’m back.

And just in time for Mother’s Day, I have a bee-otch of a headache that is making my left eye bulge, and has me yearning for some sort of blunt force trama to my skull. Joy of joys.

I hope you are doing better. While reading your post, I was hoping that the spinning wasn’t anything serious!

I guess things are better now; I hope so anyway. I didn’t realize that spinning was going to be so literal until I got reading the post.

You have comments turned off on today’s post, but I still wanted to comment.

That is a beautiful post! You are lucky to have found such a wonderful man. Happy Anniversary!
