I Am Not My Disease

Someone said I identify as my disease. I don’t but it does impact me in everything I do.

When I posted this picture I said I couldn’t walk due to vertigo and migraine, but I managed to shower and get dressed. That was when the comment was made.

I talk about accomplishments and setbacks to help others. I don’t hide my disability, nor do I hide behind it. I have good days and bad days.

I am open and honest about having balance issues and about the need to sometimes stay in bed. I was lucky my rescue med kicked the migraine to the background after a short nap and I was able to get up.

Unfortunately, it lingered all day and I ended up in bed super early. It was difficult to get there, because the vertigo returned. I could tell it wasn’t Meniere’s vertigo because I could actually close my eyes.

Unfortunately, I was wide awake by midnight. LOL!

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
