I am laughing through pain. That's right. I am laughing at my pain. Oh wait - this really does hurt.

It's official....I am a dizzy blonde

Well, I am blonde and I am dizzy. Very dizzy. But, it is not an "oh my God!" dizzy. This is a vertigo dizzy. It's been 2 weeks now and nothing has subsided. It is not worse but it is no better. I keep freaking out because all I read about lately is that migraines can be related to strokes. So, me and my obsessiveness keeps thinking that I am having a stroke everytime I get a spell....which is every other hour. Fun? Yes? No......

The room spins every other hour, if I was 5 years old again this might be amusing. But, I am almost 33 and so it is not at all. Kaiser sent me away with dramamine... the side effects suck and it did not work! So, as I am trying to type I have to keep stopping because I feel like I am going to fall over. My hope is that the Kaiser doctor was right and all I have is a virus.

Wish me luck!

I can relate; is it worse when you say, close your eyes, bend over, turn around, see stripes, go into a building with high ceilings and bright lights??? oh and then there's the black and white checkered floor stuff, or extreme loud noises in big building? these are just a few of my hmmm "favorite" dizzy rendering things.

Especially the high-ceilings, they throw me to the left, left, left. around and around and around I go.......
