Change of Plans

I got ready and even made it to church. However, vertigo and overall dizziness has me sitting in the car while my husband attends.

I am not willing to risk a full blown attack in church. I think the nystagmus is acting up because I am seeing trails. (Not exactly like I’m the picture below. (Though if I moved a lighter in front of me it would look like it.) Mine are more like after images of whatever moves in front of me. Does anyone have this problem?

Yesterday I went to a race and though I would love to attend the NASCAR race today, I think I’d not make it through. Yesterday was the first day without brain fog for about a week. So far no brain fog today. (Though it has a sneaky tendency, not like last week when I noticed it all the time.) I felt my head was broken last week.

Me in front.

It pays to be flexible when having a chronic illness and for those around you to understand. Changing plans or canceling plans happens frequently. So far I haven’t lost any friends over it. There have been naysayers who don’t believe that I am “sick”, but not my friends.

I try to avoid those people. Sometimes it’s not possible when they are family. It’s not always possible to hold my tongue, though I am getting better at avoiding situations which trigger my anger.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
