Day141; Footnotes…Vertigo

I was fine. I went out about lunch time to walk, I managed just over 3000 steps and began to feel, not quite right. Fearing it was dehydration and heat, I called it quits and came inside. After enjoying a cool glass of water, I began to clean my kitchen even though I still wasn’t feeling the best. After I finished I came and sat down at my computer.

Weak

Slightly dizzy

Concerned.

What was going on?

Vertigo…crap.


So I removed my contacts and went to lay down. And that is where I have spent the better part of the day. Stretched out on the bed somewhere between asleep and awake. A friend who I was supposed to help move some things this afternoon called, but it was all I could do to answer the phone. When my son called, I gave him the number and he went to help. I later got a message from the lady who I am going to help in the church’s Vacation Bible School. I was a little better able to text back and forth with her, but still was woozy.


 At the moment, I’m up. Its better, but not gone. I won’t be up long. I’m not pushing my luck.

I’ve dealt with this before. If memory serves me, this makes the fourth time in my entire life. The last time I blamed it on a huge club sandwich filled with processed meats. But I haven’t had one of those since. I sure didn’t have one today or yesterday. What I did was eat a ham slider last night.

So maybe. Who knows, all I know is I’ve been miserable. But I’ve made it a regular thing this footnotes blog and I didn’t want to miss a day. Its important to me to be able to do this and do this regularly.


The one odd thing, as I was laying there between asleep and awake, I swear there was one time I heard a kitten. Whether I did or didn’t, it concerned me enough to get up and bring the dogs inside. That and their constant barking wasn’t helping me. Bringing them inside I felt better able to rest.


When my son came in he asked if it was that bad. I just wanted to get up, I wanted something to drink. I wanted to do this. Now I have. So please forgive me for how this is not up to my usual. Forgive the whine. Forgive me for not acknowledging the many posts that have been made today. I pray tomorrow is better.

Vertigo. crap.

    May this be a one-time deal

    • Thank you. I have them every once in a great while. Its been two years I guess since the last one so maybe I won’t have to deal with this again for a while. Thank you for your kind comments and wishes.

  4. I’m sorry, my mom suffers from vertigo, it’s not fun, I hope you are feeling better!
