Wednesday morning I woke up around 5am and went to the bathroom. When I laid back down I turned my head toward Mike and my world literally turned upside down. My life was spinning and spinning! And kept on spinning! It was so bad that I had to lay very still and not move. I finally was able to fall back asleep. When I woke up again, I tried to walk to the bathroom again, and almost fell over. Luckily Mike had the day off and was there. He caught me and helped me to make it safely to the bathroom. It was one of the worst days of my life! I couldn't walk anywhere by myself. I threw up several times (sorry for the yucky details) from the dizziness! I knew I needed to go the doctor, but there was no way I would be able to walk or ride in a car. Unless I was just laying on my back looking straight up, it felt like I had just gotten off the tilt-o-whirl. I hate that ride! Finally, during the night I was able to turn on my side without feeling like I was going to toss my cookies (except that I hadn't eaten any cookies. I barley ate anything!!!). Thursday I was still way dizzy, but I could at least walk by myself, with the help of a sturdy wall. Mike took me to the doctor. I felt like a 5 year old walking in there with my bowl, but I didn't want to throw up on their floor! :) Luckily I didn't throw up. Turns out I have fluid behind my inner ear that is causing vertigo. I got a shot in the butt, and some other drugs. I came home and slept for like 4 hours, and when I woke up, the world was only slightly spinning. In case you've ever wondered, vertigo is the worst thing ever!!!!! I hate spinny rides, and this is awful. I was planning to start the Couch to 5k this week, but... yeah, now I get to just practice keeping the couch company. At least I'm able to sit up now. This week didn't quite work out the way I'd planned. I had thought to have a cleaning night tonight - blare some music and clean the house top to bottom. That way we could just enjoy our weekend holiday. Instead? I guess now I get a date with Buffy, my couch, and the cutest puppy ever curled up beside me. I guess that's okay too. :) Just thought I'd let you know what's going on with me and say, I hope you have a better weekend then I'm going to! :) Don't worry, it will go away soon (I pray) and I'll be back on my feet in no time!
