Last Tuesday, I was just going along ~ minding my own business ~ working at the shop ~
When I was struck with something that has never happened to me before ~
One word, 3 syllables ~
This wasn't "oh, I am a little dizzy", this was "I sat down and was afraid to get up dizzy". Greg came and got me and we went to dr. ~ he doesn't know what happened. I had an MRI to rule out any really bad stuff like a stroke or tumors ~ no bad stuff and it did show I had a brain! Yay! And speaking of MRI ~ seems like they could make that machine much quieter, even with ear plugs it is loud and confining ~ I closed my eyes and sang (in my head) the words to my favorite 2 songs in our churchs Christmas musical, Hallelujah and O Holy Night, over and over.
And 6 days later ~ it is still here. I have an ppt. at a clinic but the earliest time was next week ~ argh....another week. And then realized, what if this doesn't work ~ what if you need more than one appt. ~ it was already disconcerting to realize the dr. gave me a prescription for the med. and gave me an automatic refill on it.
If anyone knows of any quick cures let me know ~ I may take any quack cure tips too!
And yet, there are things to be thankful for ~
*that this did not happen at Disney World
*that this did not happen 1 week earlier when we were with our babies
*that I can still sit and cross stitch
*that I have a great family to help
*that I can read
*that there is no pain
*that Amy & Will can both drive ~ get themselves back and forth to work and run errands
*that Greg could leave and rescue me
*that there is medication, even if it makes me sleepy
