Make It Monday ~
Normally I use Monday's for showcasing a craft or sewing project that I've made or helped my kids to make. I try to work at least a week (usually two weeks) in advance, so if I can't get a post done one day, then it's not a big deal. Normally that works really well for me.
A little over a week ago, I woke up at 2 am with my entire world spinning. I had a case of vertigo. I've had it before. In my case, it's hereditary. My mom gets it too. It is always horrible, but it usually only lasts for a few hours so I just crawl back in bed and sleep it off. So, I crawled to the bathroom and then climbed right back in bed. When my alarm went off, I tried to sit up and get out of bed, I realized that there was no way that was happening. I woke Ben up and told him I had vertigo and that he would have to take the kids to church by himself. Which is exactly what he did.
Ben and the kids had to come home early because Ben had to get to the airport. He was flying to Mexico for work for a week. When he left, I still wasn't feeling well, but I wasn't worried. It only lasts for a few hours and then I'm totally fine. Except I wasn't totally fine. I was so dizzy and so nauseous. Nothing I did helped at all. The only thing I could do was lay in bed and not talk or move. I was down and out for over a week. I ended up going to the doctor twice and was put on 3 different medications. I had to do these weird head maneuvers to try and jiggle the equilibrium part of my ears back into the right place.
Today was the first day in NINE days that I woke up and wasn't dizzy. You have no idea how amazing that is. It's unreal how impossible it is to function when you have vertigo. Just imagine riding the Tilt-A-Whirl all day long while simultaneously having terrible all-day-long morning sickness. It is not awesome.
So, I'm just grateful to be feeling better. I'll be back to regular posts in the next couple of days.
