up to this point both school and work has been good. right now, i am really sick but doing so much better than i was at 6am.

i woke up this morning to a world that changed the laws of gravity. i was shifting in the bed due to two little boys that had climbed in and the world felt like it was literally falling way from my being. i knew rather quickly that this wasn't a flu type of thing as my head begged to be plastered to the ground. vertigo kept hitting me with almost every breathe. (by the gods, i hate being sick) i had mark call work, and once able to move enough we went to the er.


Otitis Media, fluid in the middle ear. sounds like a kid thing? supposedly, this is caused by my wonderful reoccuring sinis infections. i have some in both ears.

anyways, i am grateful for saltines and bottled water.
the boys have been exceptionally good today
mark is filling my scripts at the moment.
i'm going to try to be up for a bit but this has been a bit too much and i'm thoroughly exhausted.

i hope that everyone has had a better weekend.

How horrible! You poor thing :( I hope the meds are helping. I have never had vertigo, but it sounds really unpleasant. Hugs to you! My weekend was full of laziness and was far too short.

vertigo is worse than dizziness. it's like having to be pressed against the floor in order to stop the world from spinning so fast. glad your weekend was lazy, those can be the best ones. *hugs* i hope this week is a good one for you.

Owwww!
So sorry for you Roni!

Garlic, consumed in great amounts.
Also peel and slice a few cloves in half.
Open a new bottle of Virgin olive oil and place the cloves in a mug, cover with some oil and let sit overnight.
In the morning, place 2-3 drops in each ear after warming to body temperature and continue to do so three times a day for a few days. Ahhhh, the relief!

(I have done this with my kids several times over the years, as antibiotics are generally not an option I embrace unless all else fails.

Good luck, sweet Roni, and know that I am sending you healing thoughts and blessings!

we are definately on the same page with this one. oddly enough, i just bought a package of garlic supplements last night when i got off work. as soon as i was able to hold down some food i started taking it. i have mullien infused oil going in my ears atm. i really hope that i can transplant my mullien when we move this late spring/summer.

not doing any antibiotics at the moment. the doc gave me some stuff to help with the motion sickness and told me to start taking Afrin to help with the sinus infections. i felt a bit like a hypocrit this morning as all i cared about was the world to stop spinning so that my stomach would settle, while the doc was actually concerned with the cause. total opposite of what i normally 'preach' heh.

need your advice though, i've just started getting back into doing yoga daily. mainly sun salutations with modifications. got any suggestions on any that i can do over the next couple of days that won't entail to much standing and head movements? i don't think i can handle much of the up and downs with my head for a bit. i felt so good yesterday with an actual hour workout, i don't want to backslide.

I think the best thing would be to just give yourself a day or so to dry out those tiny inner ear passages before attempting any kind of complicated movements! Crazy woman.

Backslide.
(I'll backslide you!)

If you must, get on the floor and spread those luscious legs and stretch out like that, or possibly on your back and stretch and hold various positions there. Close to ground so you don't need balance. Crazy, wild woman. :)Backslide. Oy!

i still can't even try to do most of the yoga moves even for beginners (which is where i consider myself). with out cable we have this thing called the magrack, which offers free physical fitness videos that changes each month. i was able to do about 10 minutes of the walkaerobics, before i couldn't do the pace cuz it made the head bobble too much.
i'm going to try to do some of the sitting postures, today. even a few minutes is better than none at this point. thanks hun.
