Woozy, woozy, woozy…
August 31, 2010
A couple of days ago, I woke up and the bed was spinning. I quickly ruled out needing an exorcist or being drunk.
Swine flu has been going around the island and my children have been sick. I thought that maybe, just maybe I had bragged a little too much about not getting it. For the first time in four years I stayed in bed and James took over.
The next night, when I fell over on the way to the bathroom, I knew something was very wrong. You are not suppose feel like you are on a roller coaster walking from your bedroom to the kitchen.
I researched the internet and went to the doctor. The cute young guy ruled out stroke, ruled out swine flu, and finally diagnosed an inner ear infection. I was happy for the diagnosis and even happier I would not need to take a boat to the hospital.
Nothing to do but wait. One week to two months.
One week to two months!
I’m on my fifth day, I still do not drive (and I love to drive). I got dropped off at a playgroup where I tried as hard as I could not to appear drunk. It was hard, but I think I pulled it off.
I will be better soon and this will all be a wacky sort of memory. I now have great sympathy for people with debilitating, but not obviously debilitating conditions.
I am still trying to keep to schedule for the business. It would be easier if the computer would just stop spinning…..
