I’m talking about the majority of things that medically ail me, and I mean that literally, not figuratively. Although maybe a little figuratively too. Whatever.
Yesterday I noticed the vertigo was back. It wasn’t back in a big way, but it’s annoying none the less. It means I have to be extra careful not to offset the balance. (The oh-so-delicate-move-wrong-and-you’re-stuck-in-bed kind of balance). As long as I don’t overdo it I think I can remain mostly normal and unaffected. I mean sure this morning when the alarm went off and I sat up I thought I was going to fall off the bed, but I managed to remember not to flip my head up after putting my hair up in a towel this morning, so that has to count for something!
I also had a really bad headache yesterday although since it went away after I took 3 ibuprofen and hasn’t come back I’m not sure if I’d call it a migraine or just a headache. Or maybe it’s related to my vertigo somehow. I’m pretty sure my vertigo is related to my congestion and I have no freakin’ clue where the congestion came from because it’s September, people. It is nowhere near cold and flu season sinus infection season.
So this morning I took an ibuprofen and a sudafed. It helped a little bit, but only a little bit. Now I think I have figured it out. Sort of. I think heat makes it worse. I think physical activity makes it worse. Sometimes, I think breathing makes it worse. After sitting on the sofa for like 2 hours watching Season 2 of Dead Like Me I felt pretty good and thought I’d get cracking on my Monday List. I made it through scooping the litterbox, taking out the trash, moving the clothes to the drier and wiping the counter with a clorox cloth before I started feeling nauseous again. Extra awesome!
So now I’m back on the sofa. Watching Dead Like Me. Better luck tomorrow!
