Balance Awareness

Many people take walking for granted. Those of us with vestibular issues cannot. I am lucky that I am able to do things within reason. I am not hiking on trails that don’t have rails at the Grand Canyon or Bryce Canyon and places like that.

I tip when I walk. I cannot walk a straight line. There are days I use a cane for outings. I enjoy the scenery on our outings without putting myself at risk.

I rarely have days that I don’t experience some dizziness. Fortunately, the vertigo I have now is mini spins. I try to avoid triggers like flashing lights, noise, but living in Vegas it’s a bit difficult. So, instead I work on desensitization.

I can sit under a ceiling fan, unless it a really bad day and those days are few and far between. Sometimes moving cars give me a start, until I realize I’m not moving.

Between the balance, cicadas that constantly scream in my ears and hearing loss, it would be easy to stay in my house. I choose to enjoy my life, even if I fall in public. It has happened.

I rest on the bad days and live for the good ones. I live a life rebalanced. I hope you do too!

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
