The Payback Continues

I didn’t feel well all day yesterday, but late afternoon the mini spins started. Things went wonky on me for lack of a better word. My head felt off and then the vertigo began. On and off, until finally I admitted defeat and took a Valium. The Valium allowed me to sleep most of the night.

When I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night I was like a drunken sailor bumping off the door and frame which is only about three feet from my bed. It then took some concentration to get past the shower to the water closet. I made it and then it was time to make the return trip.


Back in bed the slow spins began, and I had trouble getting back to sleep. I managed, but I must’ve had a rough night, because my iWatch said I stood up three times for a full minute. I know I only got up the one time.

I was hopeful when I woke up this morning that the vertigo had passed, but after taking my meds, feeding the cats and even phoning in refills, my head began to move objects up and down. Okay it’s not exactly vertigo, or maybe it is. Definitely the nystagmus is making my eyes jump up and down.

I just took another Valium and am hoping to sleep it off again. Wish me luck. This is the first time I’ve needed two Valium’s in less than 24 hours.

Even though my night out has me down for two days, I still won’t stop living. And it’s quite possible that the Meniere’s would have struck with the excitement.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
