Our weather dropped from the 90’s into the 60’s after wind blew a cold front into the Las Vegas Valley. Two things that affect my Meniere’s and Fibromyalgia… really most of my illnesses is weather and pressure changes. Wind in particular will give me a migraine, dizziness and vertigo.
This time I didn’t get a migraine, but I had the light sensitivity, the tiredness and the floaters. Also, I have been dizzy for days with intermittent vertigo. I am thankful that it’s not lasting most of the day. I have been sorer than normal which is triggered by rapid weather changes.
I am not going to complain. It’s just a fact of life. I did what many of us with chronic illness do… Self-care. I took naps, rested and did things that bring me joy. Like reading when I could.
My husband doesn’t always understand and had a things planned in the weekend. The only thing I ended up doing was going to Shake Shack for donation day. It benefited Robin Lehner’s #metoo charity. Since I worked in Mental Health and live with from depression and anxiety it was a delicious way to support the charity.
Shake Shack has gluten-free buns, so I was able to have a burger that I could hold in my hands. They don’t have dairy-free shakes, so I drank water. I could have gotten one of their lemonades, but decided that I didn’t need the sugar.
I am still in a flare, but I feel better today. So far no dizziness or vertigo, but I am still in bed. It’s time for me to get up and attempt yoga. I had to skip a couple of days this week. I got through a slower practice yesterday.
How are you all?
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
